According to a user on the EA forums, the game will be updated to version 4.8 soon. The user, who currently has an open ticket with EA, meaning they’re looking into an issue for them, EA have responded to their email and said that they are working on an update that would improve loading times and fix the building layering issues amongst other things.
Could this be why it’s been so long since our last level update? Could EA be prepared to fix the mountains of issues this game has? The one question I have is how soon is ‘soon’? Only time will tell I guess.
