Now that we've had a bit of time to plan for the launch of the CityVille Games, CityVille's version of the Olympic Games, we'll finally get a chance to actually "compete" in some games, via the introduction of a new Escapades menu that separates sports and medals, allowing you to keep track of your progress in all of them.
There are five sports taking part in the CityVille Games Escapades, including track and field, swimming and gymnastics, and each is separated into Bronze, Silver and Gold medal levels. You'll need to ask your friends for materials to earn the various medals, so this looks to be a challenging event overall (since you'll be timed). For instance, to reach the first level of the Track and Field medal ceremony, you'll need to collect five each of Track Shoes, Jerseys, Vaulting Poles, Discus discs and Javelins.
You can only compete in a single event a single time, but even if you don't reach the Gold medal level in a specific sport, you'll still receive rewards. To begin, you'll only have a couple of days to finish the Track and Field event, with Swimming being the second sport that will unlock "soon." If you don't want to wait, you can also unlock additional sports with City Cash.
Either way, there are goals to complete associated with these sports as well, giving you plenty to work on in your city over the next few days. Stay tuned for more on this new feature, as we'll let you know when additional CityVille Games features launch in the game!
