FreeRealm's new producer, Nick Parkinson put out a very interesting new blog today! Some new information about things to come. Plus hints on much more!
My name is Nick Parkinson (on the forums, you’ll see me as “Glip_the_Gnome”) and I’m the new Producer for Free Realms™. I’ve been at SOE for a while now and most recently worked on the EverQuest®II team for their past couple of expansions. It’s a great time to be a Free Realms player and I am extremely excited to be joining the team right as the game celebrates its first birthday!
One year ago today, Free Realms officially went live and since then over ten million players have logged in to try their hand as a demo derby driver, brawling with robgoblins, playing a heated soccer match or any number of other fun activities available in game. And the best part is, we’re still continuing to grow and are welcoming more and more new players into our community every day. In addition to the all the birthday fun that went in with last week’s update, we’ll be running special birthday events all day, so log in and join the fun!
Don’t think the party’s over after the birthday celebrations die down though, we have a lot of great stuff lined up for the upcoming summer months. We have new pets, new items, entirely new types of rides (some might say they’re so cool, you won’t be able to keep your feet on the ground!) and a bunch of even bigger surprises in store for everyone this summer. I know the team is eagerly awaiting the time when we can start unveiling some of those bigger surprises, as we really think players are going to be just as excited about them as we are.
Without giving too much away (we don’t want to spoil it!) over the summer players can expect to see lots of new fun items to customize their houses with, cool new ways to show off their houses, new types of pets, fun summer camp inspired events and what is hands-down my absolute most favorite ride…of all time! Its going to be an exciting few months, and myself and the rest of the Free Realms team can’t wait to start releasing all the fun new stuff we’re hard at work on.
That’s it for now, but expect to start seeing these updates on a regular basis and I’ll see you all in game!
