Late last week, Sony Online Entertainment announced that Free Realms has reached 10 million registered players. For an MMO that launched in just April of 2009, the kids’ game has become incredibly popular in a relatively short amount of time.
For the title’s first birthday, Sony has planned a set of 15 new quests and, as reported by Industry Gamers, “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.”
“Reaching 10 million registered players on the eve of Free Realms’ first birthday is an incredibly exciting event for SOE and our passionate online community,” said president of SOE, John Smedley, . “Millions of gamers have confirmed that the genre we pioneered over 11 years ago with the original EverQuest continues to evolve and expand to include new styles of gameplay that reach a wider audience than ever before.”
