Sony Online Entertainment’s
family-friendly virtual world,
announced its 12 millionth registered user just
after the kick-off of its in-game virtual Summer
“Our players wanted a summer of fun in Free
Realms, so that’s what we’ve provided. With
new items, jobs and quests being added to the
virtual world, there are more ways than ever to
explore Free Realms,” said John Smedley,
president of SOE. “Our continued innovation and
consistent player engagement have built an
incredible forward momentum to take Free
Realms into its second year, and beyond.”
Summer Camp, which officially started June 7, is
anything but limited to camp activities and is
going strong with weekly summer themes, in
addition to new items and features that are
regularly being added to the game world. Players
can grab everything they need for a great day in
Seaside with the beach chair, beach umbrella,
above ground pool, lifeguard tower and
volleyball net, all of which are now available
in the Free Realms Marketplace.
In celebration of World Cup Soccer, today the
reverse-color Soccer Ball pet is available. The
Snowhill Playground is also officially open for
adventurers to explore. Players that make it to
the top of the fall-away block staircase will
find a treasure chest worth 100 coins! Moving
platforms, which are housing blocks that move in
different directions, Tiger Rides and surfboards
will be available soon.
Join the in-game action for the Barefoot Bash,
today, June 24, at 3p.m. PDT and tomorrow, June
25, at 9a.m. PDT. Players can head straight to
the party through their in-game calendar.
To celebrate the Fourth of July weekend, SOE is
running a Double Station Cash Weekend where

players will have the option to keep their
