Free Realms Hits 10 mil Players, Celebrates 1st Year

Via Gamasutra. Sony Online Entertainment’s free-to-play MMO adventure game Free Realms has surpassed over 10 million registered users since its launch in April 2009. The online game developer will celebrate Free Realms‘ first birthday and this milestone with a month-long in-game celebration.

When the family-friendly MMO hit the 9 million user mark just last month, SOE partially attributed the title’s success to its continuous development of new features and themed in-game events. Free Realms offers a variety of activities and minigames, like virtual pets, kart racing, and a trading card game that can be played with virtual cards or offline with physical card decks sold at stores.
