We heard your questions about extending the Halloween event for those of you affected by Sandy. Unfortunately we cannot do that, but the reason why we can’t is exciting: We are preparing for our big November update, which will start on November 15, and there will be content that will be in the game prior to that, leading up to the event.
Nice– now we know both a patch date and a hint of a cool precursor event leading to the update. November 16th is coming up fairly quickly.
In the meantime, if you’re in the area affected by the storms, stay safe, folks!
