Upcoming Content for Free Realms

Earlier today, Laralyn McWilliams, Creative Director of Free Realms, released an article about the upcoming November and December updates. It details many changes and additions that will roll out into the game, most of which is based upon player feedback.

Some of the upcoming content will include housing, a variety of new pets, sweeping changes to the job availablity for free-to-play accounts and an announcement of a fishing minigame. Players will get more UI options for customization and steamlining, as well as the ability to toggle on and off features such as duels or friend requests. A few of the upcoming 2010 features were announced, such as an auction house and item dyes.

Make sure you read about all of the exciting changes in full and get ready to experience a whole new Free Realms!

This all sounds so cool but there are so many questions That I hope they will answer in time. Will the pet dragons walk or fly? Will the new pets, just like the dogs and cats, give you extra speed when you run? Will your houses be visable to players other than you? What about housing placement? Will there be houses lineing the streets all over the realm or will there only be special places you can put them? Can you let other players inside your house llike you can when entering the palaces as long as you are all grouped? If anyone knows any of these answers and I just missed it in the posts. plz reply =D
Still no shared bank or Kart/Derby incentives/income. :(

Housing cool. Much needed. And, Pet owners will be very happy with the new pets! But, I know people would trade it all for shared coin/bank. And, Kart/Derby racers have no incentive to race each other. Those racers who don't run a second profession on the same toon can get all the way to level 20 had have little more than 300 coins to show for it. And, of course, no use for Stars.

Little sad to see the latter two things still on the back burner. :(

I would love to see a shared bank and no-trade items being able to be shared amongst your own account. Kart/Demo I'm at a toss-up about, I struggled so badly at those jobs that it really ruined their fun for me. Incentive to race players would at least be a boon to those who struggle on the quest line, at least, but then it comes down to who has more money to spend on upgrading their kart.

The job changes were what surprised me. Still waiting to hear the official response on it, but from how it sounds, no combat jobs will be available once you hit level 5 in them for free-to-play account who create characters on or after 11/01. That's how the Soccer Star trial was at least; once you hit level 5 on a F2P account, you were forced out of the job and couldn't even play it being level-locked. I really hope they re-think that strategy and at least allow them to play the jobs level-locked.
