A new round of buildings has been released in Social City, with new options being available in both the game’s newspaper (those being limited edition items) and in the game’s traditional marketplace. In addition, users who play Playdom’s new game Market Street will receive a free item in Social City as a reward.
New Limited Edition Buildings: Sydney Opera House, Banana Stand & More
A new series of four limited edition items has been added to the game’s newspaper, and as usual, they will only be available for a limited time. The items are the Sydney Opera House, Banana Stand, Roller Derby Rink and the Ross Center.
The Sydney Opera House is available for 59 City Bucks, and will add 64,000 Happiness Point to your town. For the Banana Stand, you’ll pay 19 City Bucks and receive 12,000 Happiness Points in return. The Roller Derby Rink costs 59 City Bucks and adds 62,000 Happiness Points to your town, and finally, the Ross Center costs 25 City Bucks and adds 24,000 Happiness Points to your town.
As of this writing, all four of these items are available in quantities of at least 2200, so be sure to grab them before they sell out.
New Build Menu Buildings: Heart Tower & Modern Flats
In addition to the new limited edition buildings now available in the game, users can browse through the game’s Build Menu, or regular store, to find two new items.
The first is the Heart Tower, a Leisure item that adds 14,000 Happiness Points to your town. It’s a “middle-of-the-road” item in terms of cost, setting you back 350,000 coins should you want to add one to your town. For splurging on the item, you’ll earn 980 experience points as a bonus.
The other new item is the Modern Flats, a high-rise apartment building of sorts, that adds 2,000 citizens to your town every 40 hours. It costs less to build, at 180,000 coins, and as such, rewards less experience points than the Heart Tower, at 540.
Play Market Street, Receive A Shopping District
In celebration of one of Playdom’s newest games, Market Street, users are now able to earn a new shopping district in Social City, that is, if they are willing to play Market Street to the point of leveling up to level 5.
To receive your free Shopping District, simply login to Market Street and play the game until you reach level 5. The quickest way to go about that is to purchase some short contracts, lasting under an hour each, and letting the game run while you play or do other things. In this way, you can come back frequently enough to stock your shelves with these new items, thus earning the experience points and coins for selling them in a hurry.
Once you reach level five, simply log back into Social City and the Shopping District will be waiting for you. Head over to the Social City game page to see these updates in action.
