Free Realms Reaches 10 Million Players

Online virtual world surpasses ten million registered players and prepares to celebrate first birthday
Sony Online Entertainment announced that more than ten million unique users have registered to play Free Realms, hot on the heels of its first birthday celebration which kicks off with a festive, month-long in-game celebration. Free Realms launched April 28, 2009. As early as mid-April, players will see party decorations in various areas of Free Realms that signal the kick-off of the birthday festivities. Celebratory live community events, two new combat minigames, party hats and commemorative t-shirts for player avatars are just some of the new extras to look forward to. A new series of 15 birthday quests will also be added. Players are urged to participate in a large scale cake fight in order to help prevent the ruin of the Free Realms birthday bash by Cakenstein, a colossal monster made from cake recipes gone wrong.
