Around the early 2010s, EA Games took their hit life-simulation franchise “The Sims” and adapted it to the mobile market. “The Sims FreePlay” has been on for quite some time now. In fact, two of the MOS platforms it launched in have since gone defunct. That leaves iOS and Android, naturally. The latter launched “Sims FreePlay” in 2012, making it a decade old this year. In that time the game app has seen numerous update packages from EA Mobile and Firemonkeys Studios. The thing is, all of them are in-house additions unlike mobile game apps in Japan with numerous cross-franchise collaborations. That’s changing this month.

The Brick Fan tells us that EA is collaborating with – obviously – LEGO for their next “Sims FreePlay” update. Specifically, they’re partnering with the LEGO DOTS craft line to bring FreePlay gamers the “You Dot You” update. This consists of all-new DOTS-themed items for Sims in the mobile app. Eagle eyes would recognize these accessories and gear as being actual LEGO Dots sets and products. There’s also a limited-time live event running June 13-24 where “Simmers” can complete gameplay challenges to unlock in-game DOTS stuff. Message boards? Customizable bracelets? DOTS-themed fashions? They’re all in this pack.

From what the images shared on social media look, “Sims FreePlay” X LEGO DOTS looks real bright and colorful. True, it’s rather niche in going for “Sims” fans who’re also LEGO (DOTS) collectors. But being free-to-play means it’s not too costly. There’s that time limit though. If you play “Sims FreePlay” on iOS/Android/Amazon and want the DOTS goodies, you have until two Fridays from now.
