Now that the Starfall anniversary is nearing its end, it’s high time to look ahead at what the future holds for these types of recurring festivities and talk about what is happening with Chases.
With any in-game event, it’s important to us that your participation feels especially rewarding and relevant to the content being highlighted. One issue with the current Chase events is that a bulk of the rewards are valued housing customization pieces gated behind activities that aren’t necessarily geared toward the dedicated builders out there. To address this we’re going to be phasing out Chases and introducing a new, more fitting event to offer the décor sets and many other housing pieces previously found as Chase rewards.
Before we get to the new event, we’re going to spin up each of the Chases for one last hurrah. We hope you’ll enjoy and take full advantage of the Chase finales, especially if you want to collect the rewards they offer sooner rather than later:
Full details for each Chase will be posted with the launch of the event.
After the Chase events are indefinitely paused, in a future update we’ll be introducing Residential Renovation! Players will help housing designer and renovator extraordinaire, Sara Conavius, by completing a variety of activities to earn currency which can be traded for rewards.
We’re currently planning to run this weeklong event once a month, and rotate former Dungeon, Battle, and Sim Chase rewards each time—this means rewards from each former Chase will be available on a three-month rotation. We’ll share more details about how the Residential Renovation event works, as well as what we plan to do with former Space Chase rewards, at a later date.
Before we signoff, let’s recap all events that’ll be in rotation following these changes.
