Gardenscapes: What to Expect in the Latest 4.2.2 Update

Just when you thought you had enough of Gardenscapes, the latest update includes a brand new limited-time event, new rooms to fix and renovate, and an airship that will take you anywhere around the world. The best part is, they’re all for free! Read on to know more details on the update.

New Event

The Lake House features a new story where Austin is invited to his friends’ wedding anniversary. However, not everything seems to be in their favor as something has messed up their plans… literally. The house is full of litter, the aquarium is leaking, and there is plenty of clutter everywhere that you need to sort out. Fortunately for Austin, this is just a walk in the park.

Not only is the Lake House a beautiful sight to behold, but it is also one of the biggest maps in Gardenscapes yet. Featuring over 12 rooms, excluding the outdoor environments, the Lake House will give players a lot of time to nitpick on the new adventure.

Of course, the game will also feature new exclusive rewards along with some fresh stuff that you can snag and take home to your garden. This is a 2-week event so that means the items will only be available for a limited time. Playrix, the developer of the game, has not confirmed if there will be a rerun sooner or later.

New Items

Perhaps the biggest additions in the latest update are the items. This time around, there are new themes that you can use to decorate your home. Whether you prefer Victorian, Renaissance, the 70s, or Modern, the brand new set of home items will leave you dazed in its plenty of choices.

Another great addition to the new update is the long-awaited airship. You can get this for free as long as you finish the entirety of the Lake House event. So, what does the airship do? Simple. It lets you fast travel from one house to another from all over the globe. Better yet, the airship even has customization options so you can personalize your hovercraft.

It is considered Gardenscapes’ biggest update yet and will provide additional hours of gameplay for its long-time fans.

Home Improvement Time

The game will also receive an improvement in its gameplay—mainly the responsiveness of selecting an item especially if it is placed right beside another item. It took them long until they figured out that you can now choose the selected item with the new option box. So, if you happen to have an aquarium sticking right beside a chair and you can’t click the one you want because the game felt conflicted, now you can solve it with the option box.

The Current State of Gardenscapes

Gardenscapes still remains as Playrix’s top game, followed by Township. Currently, Gardenscapes has four million players from all over the globe and counting. It may be several years old already at this point, but it is still one of the most favorable home building and fixing simulator games at the moment. A lot of players stuck with the game simply because it is very friendly for F2P players — no pay to win microtransactions, no unfair advantages. Plus, the story of Austin and his family is quite good too.

The game received many more updates in 2020 with new quality of life improvements, better graphics, and more consistent connections online. Aside from that, there are now plenty of newer stories besides the main mode. The game now also includes a daily and weekly challenge category. This is a great time-killer for the fans who want to spend more time in the match-3 segment or the hidden object portion.

Playrix Continues to Dominate the Charts

Playrix is a team of developers who have gotten numerous praises for their works, especially on Gardenscapes and Township. In fact, both of their games are doing very well. They are even seen on the top charts for Top Free Games, Top Building Games, and Top Simulator Games.

Why People Prefer Gardenscapes

Simply put, there are plenty of things to do in Gardenscapes. You are not just stuck with one gameplay mechanic but rather several of them: puzzles, match 3, and hidden objects. Tagging along these three segments is the story, which has a surprisingly good narrative that just about any Playrix fan will enjoy.
