Hello lovely console players!
It’s so super close to the JUMBO launch now, we’re so excited for you to play the massive amount of content coming your way. Soon you’ll be investigating mysterious alien conspiracies in Close Encounters and making Two Point County green again for the very first time in Off the Grid, but first we wanted to give you a little heads up about the timing of both the JUMBO and the Free Update releases, as it’s going to differ depending on your region and platform (it’s nothing to worry about, we just want you to be in the know).
Firstly, JUMBO will be available on the PS4, Xbox and Nintendo stores at 08:00 AM in your time zone *(please note – for US and Canada this will be PST only for Nintendo Switch) on March 5th so you’ll be able to spend the whole day playing if you like, whoop whoop!
The Free Update will be available before JUMBO, so some of you may see there’s an update to download on March 4th which contains Room Templates, REMIX levels and lots of bug fixes, as well as everything you need to get started with the new content in JUMBO when it releases (this means you’ll see the new Close Encounters & Off the Grid locations on your map, but they won’t be accessible before March 5th at 08:00 AM in your time zone). So if you notice a new update, it’s all part of the plan and is perfectly fine to download, just be aware that it will show some content that won’t be available until JUMBO itself releases at 08:00AM March 5th in your time zone.
What if I have the physical copy?
If you’ve ordered the physical copy, you’ll be able to play the content as soon you have the disc/cart, you lucky devil AND you’ll even have access to REMIX and Room Templates! We would highly recommend downloading the Free Update as well though, so you can benefit from all the new stability fixes we’ve added.
So now you should be all set and ready to go for launch! If you have any questions, feel free to drop us a message on our social channels and we’ll do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.
See you tomorrow for the launch, and have an awesome rest of your day!
