Honestly, that’s very difficult to say. Just like the anticipation before Whacking Day, we don’t really know when the Squidport expansion will land, but we know there’s exciting stuff on the way. The Yard Sale end date is unclear – it could end this week or it could end next week (while the date in the files says May 29, that doesn’t necessarily mean anything). But because it’s unclear, we really can’t be sure when the next big thing will begin.

So, if you want to join the speculation and you’re on the home page, click or tap on the link below the picture. And if you’re already on the post page, you have until the end of the picture to leave as quickly as you can…

The Yard Sale may end this week, or it may end next week. Nothing has been confirmed and EA are unlikely to announce anything in advance. But it looks like it will be followed by the Squidport/seashore expansion, launching the Sea Captain to kick off a new questline that has you building the Squidport boardwalk. It seems to be available once you hit level 6, and it looks like it may be a permanent addition to the game (although it may have limited-time elements). It will also give you the opportunity to buy more land, possibly on the water:
[ $39,000 ] [ $35,000 ] [ $33,000 ]
[ $35,000 ] [ $33,000 ] [ $19,000 ]
[ $35,000 ] [ $33,000 ] [ $19,000 ]
[ $39,000 ] [ $35,000 ] [ $19,000 ]
[ $44,000 ] [ $39,000 ] [ $33,000 ]
[ $50,000 ] [ $44,000 ] [ $35,000 ]
[ $56,000 ] [ $50,000 ] [ $39,000 ]
[ $62,000 ] [ $56,000 ] [ $44,000 ]
[ $69,000 ] [ $62,000 ] [ $50,000 ]
[ $77,000 ] [ $69,000 ] [ $56,000 ]
[ $86,000 ] [ $77,000 ] [ $62,000 ]
[ $95,000 ] [ $86,000 ] [ $69,000 ]
[$104,000 ] [ $95,000 ] [ $77,000 ]

My best guess for the Squidport expansion has always been May 30, but it’s possible that EA may surprise us all and have something out this Thursday/Friday – we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, though, if you’d like to read the previous posts on the seashore to see more about what’s coming, you can look here, here, here, and here.

But lurking just behind that are level 30 and 31. Level 30 looks like it will contain Herman and Herman’s Military Antiques for game dollars and Jasper for donuts. They may be released with the Squidport expansion or they may be a week or so behind. And level 31 looks like it will include Rainier Wolfcastle and Wolfcastle Mansion, although I wouldn’t expect him until closer to July.
