Earlier today, Sony Online Entertainment announced that the free-to-play, family-friendly MMO Free Realms now has more than two million registered users since its April 28 launch. As expected, Free Realms struck gold with young users, with 75 of registrants being under 17, and 46 under 13.
In less than a month, Free Realms has captivated a core player base of tween and teen gamers, while also strongly resonating with MMO gamers, said John Smedley, president of Sony Online Entertainment. We wanted to create a game to play with our families and are excited to have hit the mark with our intended audience." In celebration of this accomplishment, Sony's handing out a "party pack" bundle of in-game items to all current users.
Despite the vast population of younger gamers, even those above 17 can still find something in Free Realms. After all, the MMO allows players to lead the roles of their own choosing - be it on an epic quest, or simply take it easy and cook up your favorite meal.
