Posted on April 21, 2009 by Chris Nelson
So we have a new pseudo-contest for you: Free, exclusive access keys to the Sony Online Entertainment’s Free Realms Beta. These keys will give you an active account immediately — no need to wait for random beta selection.
Here’s SOE’s description of Free Realms:
Free Realms™ is a brand-new jaw-dropping free virtual world where you can do whatever you want, whenever you want! Free Realms™ is easy to access! There’s no need to go to the store and spend money on the box, or take hours installing and patching the game. Get in the game quickly and easily from your web browser, create your character, and be playing in a full 3D game world client within minutes!
Looking for adventure? Unlock Jobs like ninja, warrior and wizard to battle enemies as you search for lost treasure or duel other players. Battles not for you? Teach your pet a new trick, mine for gold, cook up a meal, or race your car! When you’re ready for a different kind of challenge, play a wide variety of completely integrated mini-games, jump into the trading card game or check up with your friends on your profile page. Free Realms™ is the place to join your friends to discover, explore, compete, chat, share achievements and just have fun! In Free Realms™, YOU RULE.
Play Free or Upgrade: At its heart, Free Realms™ is free to play, but players who want to break through to the next level can purchase a monthly membership for only $4.99 USD. Members and free players can purchase a variety of items through micro-transactions.
Rich Character Creation: With over 30,000 wearable combinations, you can blend fantasy and reality to create your perfect avatar.
Be Whoever You Want: Be a ninja one minute and a kart driver the next! With fifteen jobs available at launch, you can find your perfect job, or try them all! Member Jobs available at launch include: wizard, blacksmith, medic, archer and warrior. Free Jobs include: ninja, brawler, chef, miner, demolition derby driver, kart driver, card duelist, adventurer, postman, and pet trainer.
Kid-Safe: Parental controls allow for the customization of safety options, including pre-canned chat, reporting and filters for younger players.
Fun for Everyone: With so much to do and see it’s easy to find something for you! Start by playing one of 14 different styles of minigames like cooking, kart racing, mining, demolition derby and music conducting. The action doesn’t stop there, as there are over 460 quests for everyone with an additional 240 available to Members. Even though combat is optional, there are 80 free battles and 15 additional Members Only battles—plenty of action for those eager to fight fierce creatures!
Vibrant, Deep Environment: Eight distinct, unique and breathtaking environments for gamers to explore for launch. Areas include the snowcapped mountain villages of Snowhill, the dark and mysterious Blackspore, and real fun in the sun at Seaside.
Connect with Friends: Whether you’re meeting up with old friends or finding new ones, Free Realms™ lets players stay connected through its social networking page. Just log in, see what your friends have been up to, click their avatars and join them in the game!
Trading Card Game: The Free Realms™ Trading Card Game will let players pit a variety of fun characters and creatures against one another in fun, fast-paced combat. Half the game is collecting new cards, to arm yourself with the best line up of attacks and defenses. You can even prove your might in online tournaments!
