    Default New Screenshots! New Info! New Pets! New New New!!!

    A new story entry has been added:

    [drupal=1614]New Screenshots! New Info! New Pets! New New New!!![/drupal]

    Getting tired of teaser pictures? Well, check out these new screenshots from Free Realms's new treasure hunting pirate minigame via Facebook, Twitter, and the official forums!



    Also, more info on the minigame will be revealed later today! Finally! Keep a weathered eye out for more!


    UPDATE: The official Free Realms Blog has been updated with more info on the minigame from Senior Producer David Georgeson, including info on new pets!




    Greetings Realmians!
    My name is David Georgeson. I’ve recently returned to SOE as the new Sr. Producer for “Free Realms”. (You’ll see me on the forums occasionally as “Mister_Qixter”.)
    I’ve been making games for over 20 years now, and the games I’ve made are widely varied. My early career was mostly action games (including SOE’s own “PlanetSide”), but I spent the last few years at Gaia Online dreaming up and running the team that made “zOMG!”, immersing myself in that crazy, huge community and figuring out new ways to push the virtual world envelope.
    Now, I’m leading the charge with the great team that’s already here on Free Realms, helping come up with ways to make your world even cooler and more fun. (And, boy howdy…do we have ideas! Oh yes…so very, very many.)
    You may have seen some of the mysterious pictures that “leaked” earlier this week on our forums, twitter and Facebook pages. And, while we are still trying to figure out who the sneaky mole is, I can announce that “Pirate’s Plunder” is the next 3-D mini-game that will be out later this week! In addition to the launch of this extremely cool game there are also new pirate-oriented clothing and housing items available, new characters around the world, and just generally awesome pirate-ish-ness going on. (You know you need a pirate ship outside your house, right? Yarr!)



    But wait! There’s more! Want a tiger pet? Cool. We’ve got that too. Oh! You want improved Pegasus animations AND two more cool variations of the Pegasus Ride? We’ve got those too! (See!?! We listen to your comments on the forums. We really do.)
    We’re also scheduled to debut a fun feature for members called “Pet Pals”, which are cute little mini pets that follow you around the world and keep you company. Pet Pals can be bought for coin or Station Cash. (Be sure to check out the Fish. Not to be missed!)
    And, believe it or not, Free Realms will hit the one year mark in April! Yup, it’s our first birthday next month, and we’re going to celebrate in style. I’ll wait to unveil the details of that later, but the team has been in a frenzy coming up with a big event to wrap around that momentous day, and we aim to please.
    So stay tuned! We’ve got some wild things being planned. Free Realms is going to get a lot crazier (read that as “wildly entertaining”) soon. You’ll see.



    Until next time,
    David (Mister_Qixter) Georgeson.
    A partial list of my game credits (in chronological order):

    Pools of Darkness (one of the first AD&D computer games ever made)

    Absolute Zero

    Mechwarrior II series

    Heavy Gear 2

    Crusaders of Might & Magic (the Playstation version)

    Tribes 2

    PlanetSide

    Mage Knight: Apocalypse

    zOMG!
    And now…Free Realms!!!

    I agree about the VMK part. This looks especially like a cross from VMK's Capture the Flag (only you find Gold Chests and return them) and the type of animation/action found in Pirates Online. A great combination to add to the amazing world of FreeRealms. However, I really hope a "Pirate Job" will be added if not with the release, than later on. Honestly, I like Pirates more than Ninjas.

    Free Realms just gets better all the time. I started playing 10 months ago, and haven't run out of things to do.
