Background Changer

Free Realms went down earlier this afternoon, and will remain offline for a few more hours while they apply a new update. Thankfully we won't have to wait very long to see what will be added, as community ambassador Zatozia has already provided us with update notes!

Free Realms player will be happy to hear that a brand new messaging system will be added in game. Although details of this new feature have not been released, we assume it will allow users to send in-game mail to each other as seen in many other MMORPGs. Hopefully this will improve communication by members to invite friends to parties, activities, dungeon exploring, and more!   We can now confirm that this feature was simply put in place for referees & SOE staff to communicate with players in a more efficient way.

Other changes include a brand new mini-game called "Spot the Difference."  This mini-game will ask users to identify the differences in two images and will include three different levels of difficulty.  This mini-game will also be open to all players.

Finally, members may remember a change in the naming policy at Free Realms.  The Referees had been swamped with requests for name changes for awhile. Due to that backlog Free Realms put limits in place, which made it so users could only request a change once every week, and later restricted this service to members only.  As of this update all users will be able to pay and request a name change using the in-game market.  Prices at this time has not been released, and it is unknown if this service will require coin or station cash to use.

Bug fixes and minor farming changes have also been applied to improve game play quality. Free Realms should be up later this evening for those of you on the East Coast, stay tuned!

 

UPDATE (September 26th @ 10:17pm EST): Free Realms has come back online and is now available to play.  Members have reported that they have not been able to use free chat, or communicate with their friends who are unable to use free chat.  This is not a new feature or meant to restrict the game play of any user, it is a glitch and is working to be resolved as soon as possible by the Free Realms team.
