Free Realms Game Update Adds:
Winter Holiday Events, Player Housing, New Pets, Fishing, and More!

Free Realms is closing 2009 with a
BANG! Today, the hit online game released its newest game update containing a
multitude of highly anticipated new features directly requested by the players.
From spike dragons and snowball fights to real estate and rocket ships, Free
Realms continues to be the place where PLAYERS RULE!

Player Housing allows players to
have a personal piece of virtual real estate all their own. With three types of
houses available now, you can obtain unique items to decorate your new pad, play
with your pets in the yard, invite friends over and even throw dance parties.

  • The Apartment – 1 bedroom and free
    for all players; holds up to 75 items.

  • The Small Wilds House – 2 bedroom
    house with a small yard; free for all Members and holds up to 250 items.

  • The Large Wilds House – 3 bedroom
    house with a large yard; available only in the Marketplace and holds up to 400

  • Over 100 items – Decorate the
    interior and exterior of your new place with cool house items like the
    Babbling Stone Head, the Mega Dance Floor or a larger than life Rocket Ship
    that actually launches. Obtained through the Marketplace, Coin Shop, quests
    and the Daily Spin wheel, most Marketplace and Coin Shop items are
    color-customizable at purchase.

Snow Days, the Free Realms winter
holiday celebration, has transformed Snowhill into a winter wonderland filled
with food, fun, and of course – presents!

  • Holiday Treats – Visit Candi Ivy
    near the Gifting Tree in Snowhill to help protect the presents from a wicked
    gang of Robgoblins and the abominable snowmen! Follow the holiday quest line
    and players might just get a chance to try all of her neat holiday sweets.

  • Ready-Aim-Fire! – Pelt your
    friends with snowballs as you duck behind ice barriers in the Snowhill
    snowball fighting area.

  • Dress to Impress – Check out the
    Marketplace for new holiday clothes, costumes and items!

New Pets have arrived in Free Realms
including dragons, dinosaurs, unicorns, ponies and pegasi. Available in numerous
colors direct from the in-game Marketplace, these unique species are ready to be
adopted and find loving homes!

  • Tricks & Tips – From backflips and
    hand stands, to breathing fire and playing dead, these new pets each have 3
    impressive tricks they can perform for your entertainment. Happier pets do
    cooler tricks so make sure you stock up on their favorite foods.

  • Special Surprise – Stand around
    long enough and your pet pony may protest with a little rainbow tinkle or
    dragons may release some hot fire droppings.

Fishing is the latest job to be
added to Free Realms with an all new 3D minigame that will reel in players hook,
line and sinker! Ever wonder what lurks within the waters of Sacred Grove?
Fishermen know all the secret spots to cast their lines and catch everything
from exotic fish to treasure. You can also fish with your friends for added
angling adventure.

  • Go Fish! – 13 quests await players
    who take the bait and visit resident fishing expert, Reed Stillwater in the
    Sacred Grove Shallows.

  • On the Hook – 30 different species
    of fish are just waiting to be caught in six different fishing holes.

  • Fly Fishing – Gear up with the
    coolest fishing equipment. Poles, lures and wearables are available in the
    Marketplace, Coin Shop and by playing the fishing minigames.

Other Feature Additions:

  • Launch yourself into the sky with
    Launch Pads; these can be found in Lakeshore, Snowhill, Merry Vale, Seaside
    and Sanctuary!

  • Combat has undergone a large
    revamp. Every combat job, item and combat encounter has been upgraded to make
    your combat experience faster paced and more exciting. Start a battle from the
    Game Guide to try out powerful new attacks!

  • Check the Activity Calendar for
    Parties and Events! These parties are popping up all over the place; dress up
    in your Luau gear or bring you pets along to join in the fun!

  • To start the new TCG quests,
    purchase the Shattered Past quest packs and talk to Sir Wellington in
    Briarwood, outside of Vale of Ancients.

  • You now can find the option to dye
    items different colors in the Marketplace before you buy them!

and characters with Live Gamer! This service is available to our 18+; US only,
