Most notably, the latest update to the game sees the grand opening of the Sunset Mall, where you can take your Sims to shop till they drop.
At the mall, you can go to a number of new shops to check out more than 500 new clothes, shoes, and accessories for all age groups. Completing the Sunset Mall quest also unlocks the new burger bar.
The new version of The Sims FreePlay also introduces a couple of new hobbies. One is the new modeling hobby, which lets you hit the catwalk with the latest fashion trends. And the other is the bowling hobby, which lets you play at the bowling alley and unlock the new juice bar for some healthy slurping to boot.
