Yee-haw! Construction has started on the Dallas Stadium in Arlington!

[UPDATE 9.28.2022]

To ensure the best possible experience for players participating in this two-city release, we will be opening the Oak Lawn neighborhood in Dallas first. This means the schedule for release will be slightly different than what was originally announced.

Properties in Oak Lawn will release at 8:00 am PT. We will then give a 5 minute warning before releasing the remaining neighborhoods in Dallas, and the East Arlington neighborhood.

Giddy up, Uplanders! We have a double-dipped, Texas-sized city opening! That’s right, our next city release has not one, but TWO cities: Dallas and Arlington. 

As one of the largest cities in the Lone Star State, D-Town brings cowboy boots, cowboy hats, and a slab of the South to Upland. And because football is such a huge part of Texas, we are also opening Arlington, Texas and including its famous football stadium. 

You better saddle up because we’re adding some yeehaw to Upland! Read on to find out more, and don’t forget to hop into Reddit to join the discussion.

City Release Details

As the ninth-largest city in the U.S., Dallas is home to more than 1.2 million Dallasites. Dallas classifies as a large-sized, medium-priced city according to Upland’s city tier system. When Dallas is set loose, about 29,000 of the the total ~300,000 properties will be available. More parcels will come later as neighborhoods expand post-launch. About 27% of the properties will be FSA for newer players joining Upland. These cities will launch in Vanilla Mode, meaning that property Collections will be revealed about a week after the city’s initial launch.

Right next to Dallas we have Arlington, a mid-sized, medium-priced city right next door. Here we’ll see about 20,000 of its 110,000 total properties available in the initial opening. About 33% of these properties are allocated as FSA. There are plans to expand properties after launch.

Fun Facts About Dallas and Arlington

With a city motto of “Discover Your All,” there is bound to be a lot of history, culture, and fun to be found in Dallas. Check out some of these fun facts for a taste. 

  1. If you think Texas is only good for country dancing and rodeo, think again! The Dallas Arts District is the largest urban art district in the U.S. and is home to amazing performing and visual arts. 
  2. In 1927, a small convenient store known as 7-Eleven got its start. Now, it’s a multinational brand with more than 13,000 branches in the U.S. and Canada. That’s a lot of Big Gulps! 
  3. Maybe there’s something in the barbecue, because there sure are a lot of big names and deep pockets that come out of Dallas. There are 27 billionaires in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex area, and celebrities such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Meatloaf, Vanilla Ice, Usher, Jensen Ackles, Nick Jonas, and Drew Brees were born in Dallas. 
  4. With a baseball stadium, football stadium, and the International Bowling Camps containing the International Bowling Museum, Arlington is a sports mecca. 
  5. Top O’ Hill Terrace, aka “Vegas before Vegas,” was a casino that operated in the 1920s Prohibition Era. This spot was located a short way from the Arlington Downs Racetrack and even had an underground getaway tunnel for raids.
