  • The June Member's Pack has been released!
  • If you're not a member, or used the Member's Pack on a different character, you can still get the new Black Soccer Ball pet pal in the Marketplace.
  • New summertime housing items have been added to both the Marketplace and Coin Shop. You can now bring the beach to your house!
  • There's another new Playground. This time it's in Snowhill. If you are skilled enough to make it all the way to the top, there's a treasure chest up there for you to open!
  • And saving the best (I think, anyway) for last ... the Totem Boombox is now available in the Marketplace, in the Holiday section. So be warned: all items in this section will no longer be available when Summer Camp ends on July 7th.

  • Marketplace Items
  • A few more Emotes have been added, but some have been removed. It also looks like some of the typed commands have been removed as well.
  • A new Playground has been added in Highroad Junction, behind the Highroad Junction Adoption Center. It gives you the opportunity to see the items in the new Platforming category, and try them out before buying them.

  • There are a number of new Housing Items in the Coin Shop and the Marketplace:
    • You can now purchase Launch Pads for your home, in 3 sizes -- small; medium; and large.
    • There are 4 new styles of blocks, and non-members can buy them all! You can choose from: Cheese blocks, in all the regular shapes; Cloud blocks, as a single or in packs of 3; Storm Cloud blocks, that shimmer with lightning when you stand on them, also single or packs of 3; and Fall-away blocks, that disappear a few seconds after you land on them.
    • You can now go for that Zen garden look with one of the 2 Bridges in the Marketplace -- choose from stone or wood.
  • For all of you skateboarders and surfers out there ... or even Back to the Future fans, you can now purchase a Hoverboard in 2 styles -- one with a cool glow, like the Warpstones; and the other that's molten lava hot!
  • The Marketplace has Wizard items again, and all the stats level up with you:
  • Matchmaking will now connect you with players on other servers! So you don't have to play soccer, demo derby, racing, checkers, chess, or Pirate's Plunder alone!
  • And last, but not least, for this week ... there's new emotes in the chat UI. Some of them are very funny, you should check them out and have a giggle!

  • The big addition this week is the ability to purchase Coins with Station Cash. There's 4 different amounts available.
  • Another significant change involves the About Me section of the User Interface. There are now only 7 buttons:
    • Details
    • Stuff
    • Style Cards
    • Abilities -- this is only clickable while in a combat job; it shows you the abilities associated with the chosen job and the weapon you're holding
    • Jobs and Equipment -- this new version has combined 3 buttons into one, and reorganized it; you now change jobs, change what you're wearing, and change shards/jewelry all on the same screen, using scroll wheels
    • Consumables
    • Collections -- this screen is now just an alphabetical list; it is no longer divided into sub-sections
  • The White-Nosed Stallion is a new horse mount, available in 6 colors.
  • There's a Mother's Day Bouquet, available in 4 colors in the Marketplace and an additional color in the Coin Shop.
  • Some of the old Maketplace Tools are back, with new names because you can now select your own color. Each tool increases a particular stat for a different amount, depending on your job level.

Special thanks to Marisol Bluesurf for all of the March 12th updates!

  • Three new mounts were added to the game: Pegasus, White-Nosed Mare, and Stallion.
  • New variations of the Owl and Pony were added to the game.
  • A new block pattern has been added to the Coin Shop: Polka Dots. All block shapes can now be purchased in this pattern, with a background color of red.

  • There's been a new feature added to the Coin Shop: a Buy Back tab. If you mistakenly sell an item, you can now get it back without having to send in a ticket! However, there's no information on how long an item stays available to you, and there have been reports of strange items replacing your sold items on this tab.
  • The Bundle of the Day has returned and is now featured at the top of the Marketplace screen. No more hunting to find this great deal!
  • The "white screen" error has been worked on, and hopefully no longer occurring for anyone.

Patch Notes - 02/12/2010

  • Festival of Hearts
    • Merry Vale is celebrating the Festival of Hearts! However, not all is hugs and kisses. Help the clueless scientist, Cudip, figure out the secrets of love. But beware of Stone Heart and his minions, the heartbreakers. These bitter and angry monsters don't want anyone to be happy this year.

January 26, 2010

  • Snow Days is over for the season! Snowhill has returned to its former state.
  • The Royal Vault has been officially boarded up!
    • Gulsh is still available in front of the former vault to buy your Treasure Tickets for Coins 10  each.
    • Gulsh will also teleport you into the old vault if you want to spend your tickets. It is unknown how much longer this feature will remain. (Thanks, Thwap Truforge!)
    • Gulsh mentions that most of the items that were removed from The Royal Vault can now be purchased with coins in the Coin Shop. You can specifically customize the color of these clothing/armor. The weapons that are available are not color-customizable. (Unknown if this is a bug.)
      • Note: There appears to be a bug with the Coin Shop not listing all the items from The Royal Vault.
      • Solution (workaround): You can find all of the items that were moved from the Royal Vault to the Coin Shop using the "Sort By" drop-down menu in the Coin Shop and selecting "Sort A-Z." (Thanks, Darius Darkspice!)
    • It is still unknown at this time what, if anything, will become of the vault.
  • Multiple quantities of items can now be sold in the Coin Shop. (Thanks, Genfar!)
  • The January Member's Pack is now available!

Patch Notes - 01/25/2010

These notes were posted on the Free Realms Forums:

  • New pets have arrived on the Marketplace! Catch Zilla for a limited time, or adopt the new duckbill dinosaur, Crackers. Meanwhile, Cinnamon, Skip, Jaina, and Icco have been spotted sporting new colors.
  • New Housing items have been added to the Marketplace, look for blocks in new shapes and colors! What new, crazy things will you build out of them?
  • Snow Days is over until next year. We hope you got all of your tacky sweaters.
  • New options allow you to disable friend, trade, guild, group and other group requests from players.
  • Treasure Tickets are no longer being given out as rewards. Redeem your remaining tickets by speaking to Gulsh out front of the Royal Vaults in Sanctuary, or sell them for coin in the Coin Shop.
  • New events have been posted on the Activity Calendar!
  • You can now change the quantity of the items you sell.
  • Atlas optimizations were made; clicking on a zone will no longer zoom you into a smaller view of that zone on the atlas.
  • You can change the option to have F10 make your UI disappear – check Game Options -> Game Play to make adjustments.

January 14, 2010

  • Coin rewards have been increased for most activities throughout Free Realms. The purchase and sell prices of many items have been decreased as well. Higher rewards and lower prices will result in Coin Shop items being easier to buy!
  • By Royal decree, we are phasing out Treasure Tickets to prepare for changes to the Royal Vaults. Tickets will no longer be awarded for any in-game activities. You may spend your remaining tickets in the vault or sell them for coins. Tickets can be sold in the Coin Shop or by speaking to Gulsh outside the Royal Vaults.

Game Play - 01/14/10

  • Pet food and grooming will no longer decay when your pet is in storage. This will result in happier pets!
  • Fixed an issue that would cause some players to be frozen in place the first time they entered a Kart or Demo Derby race.
  • The pet tutorial will no longer pop up every time you log in.
