The Lisa Statue of Liberty was the main decoration in the event.

The 4th July 2013 Event was the twenty-fourth content update for The Simpsons: Tapped Out.[1] It was released on June 28, 2013[2] and ended on July 8, 2013.[3] It was the second 'moderate sized' event released for The Simpsons Tapped Out, following the St. Patrick's Day Event, even though the St. Patrick's Day Event was slightly smaller with less content. The event was based around Independence Day (July 4) in the US,[4] with fireworks and decorations symbolizing the day. Some of these included the Lisa Statue of Liberty (replica of the Statue of Liberty) and the Liberty Bell, which are located in New York City[5] and Philadelphia,[6] respectively. 

Except for the new quests and content (which can be found below), not much was added to the game with this update. This was most likely because of the Squidport Expansion being released not long before. All of the features included in this event were available for players of Level 5 and over. All of the new content included can be found below. The Liberty Bell was the rarest decoration introduced, as it could only be acquired by completing all 13 parts of the Rocket's Red Glare quest chain.[7]

The event was mistakenly released 3 days early, at first only showing the new characters in the character menu and 4 "new" notifications in the building menu (three in the premium section, one in the decoration section).[8] EA admitted their mistake and fully released the update to prevent people from having to wait the entire weekend. On July 4, 2013, all players received a small dialogue from Apu saying that he can no longer keep all of the illegal fireworks in his shop as there is no more room in his inventory. This prompts him to give the player a Box of Fireworks for free as a gift (their usual price is 50 donuts).[9]

All of the content included in the event was originally limited time, and all remained so except from Lincoln's Cabin with Abraham Lincoln which will be available until July 25, 2013 instead of the initial deadline of July 8, 2013 when the event ended. This was due to people posting on discussion boards and on the forums about the short amount of time they had to be able to purchase something with a high donut price.

TriviaEdit

  • It was initially thought that Level 31 would be arriving on the week of the release, instead of the 4th July 2013 Event.
