I was pretty excited a couple of months ago as it appeared that we would be treated to an new game update for "Riverdale Rescue" soon. I waited and waited until I learned from an online friend that we should be expecting the opposite.
Here is what you get when you open up "Archie: Riverdale Rescue" right now:

It's been a wild ride, but like all journeys, Archie: Riverdale Rescue is coming to an end. After October 30th, Archie: Riverdale Rescue will no longer be available for download or purchase. The dedicated efforts of all our players have staved off the disaster Mayor Ruskin left behind. You've cleaned up trash, upgraded houses, built parks, unlocked neighbourhoods, and made new friends; Riverdale is thriving once again!I have tried looking at the "never-before-seen" new features in the Archie store, but cannot get the game to fully load for me. I will provide update if and when I eventually get back on the game!
What does this mean for Riverdale rescuers? We want you to enjoy the full catalogue of Archie characters, clothing, decorations, and fixtures, as well as all remaining quest and comic content. All items (including never-before-seen!) are now available in the Archie store. Soda is on sale at a steep discount -- 100,000 soda for $9.99! Make the most of our last few weeks in Riverdale!

Updated on 10/14/15: I was finally able to get "Riverdale Rescue" to load up for me last night! I was curious to learn what new features I would discover before the game ended. I was hoping for Clay Walker, but that character wasn't there. No new characters or Quests were there when I arrived last night.
Instead, I discovered a bunch of new items that you can purchase within the Archie store:
I don't remember most of these items from when I was playing the game regularly. It seems like a hodgepodge of yard supplies, including statues of Smokey the Bear, Bigfoot, and a cow. There's an interesting sandbox and a tetherball. It looks like they have a stage for the Archies to perform on. And then there's this weird Thanksgiving Day Parade float. It also looks like there's a small assortment of Independence Day items.
And then there is Christmas... A very repetitive Christmas assortment...
