BitLife is back with yet another huge update that introduces a bunch of new features into our favourite text-based life simulator. Developer Candywriter likes to spoil us often, by introducing huge feature update after feature update.

This time around there are a whopping 450 new scenarios, a new career collections feature, job performance scores, retirement plans, work hour adjustments, an intelligence test, and a bunch of improvements and bug fixes.

At this point, you’ll probably be wondering what any of this means. That’s fair enough, as it’s just a bunch of words right now. That’s why we thought we’d put together this guide to help introduce you to the new changes and features.

If it’s something else you’re looking for, why not check out our Complete Guide to BitLife, where we’ve rounded up all of the many guides we’ve written on the text-based life simulator so far.

BitLife Version 1.22 Guide – New Features:

Here we’ll round up and discuss all of the new features included in the 1.22 update:

New Scenarios:

In this update, Candywriter has written and released a whopping 450 new scenarios for you to enjoy. This includes brand new situations specific to every single career path currently possible in the game.

Of course, you can also expect to find many scenarios that aren’t directly related to your career path too. It should freshen up your day-to-day experience of playing this awesome game.

Career Collections Tab:

You can now collect all of the different careers in BitLife in a handy tab that reveals the jobs you’ve previously undertaken and when you first received them. It’s also a handy place to check which jobs you haven’t currently experience so you can aim for them in the future.

In total, there are 144 different careers to collect in BitLife. We’re not sure if it includes all of the careers you’ve encountered in the past though, so you may have to start again.

Career Performance Scores:

As of this update, you’ll start receiving performance scores for every single full-time job, including the military. This should help you avoid performance-related sackings as you’ll have the opportunity to work harder when you need to.

Retirement Plans:

If you’ve worked really hard for a company for a long period of time in BitLife, you might just get rewarded with a lovely retirement package. Judging from what we’ve seen so far, this appears to be a random event that allows you to retire and rewards you with a yearly pension.

Work Hour Adjustments:

Now you can adjust how many hours you put in at work, reducing or increasing them as you wish. This might sound like a great new feature but the problem is that your bosses can also adjust your hours too.

This can cause any number of problems for you, so it should keep your future BitLives feeling a little more fresh. At the very least, it should keep you on your toes.

IQ Test Mini-Game:

We love a good BitLife mini-game over here at Gamezebo, and chances are if you’re a longterm fan of BitLife, you do too! This update introduces the intelligence, or IQ, test mini-game, and it’s an absolute blast.

The IQ test involves watching four different coloured lights turn on in a certain sequence. You have to memorise this sequence and repeat it, receiving an IQ Score depending on how well you’ve memorised it.

Miscellaneous Changes and Fixes:

Candywriter has also improved the overall experience in BitLife with the following changes:
