Free Realms offers an amazing array of gameplay activities all rolled up into one massive, seamless, virtual world. Hop on the back of your trusty T-Rex and explore the countryside; discovering strange lands, rare collectibles, and exciting quests. Brave the dangers of forgotten dungeons and battle hordes of mythical monsters and bad-tempered beasties.

So does PS+ get membership? Or like, a discount for membership?
Seems pretty cheap but I’m already enjoying PS+ Benefits.

wow wow wow @ how many idiots asked the same question 20times. “will pc account work on ps3” seriously people, it was asked by twice by like the 10th question. How about saving the guy some time and just ask questions that haven’t been answered.

Either way, seems pretty cool lol

Does the free version of the game offer users the chance to unlock trophies or do users have to upgrade to membership to be able to unlock any trophies??

Zeer0id said:

I can’t believe I’m saying this, as a dedicated MMO opponent, but I’m probably going to end up wasting a -lot- of time on this thing. And Trophies, too! Consider me sold… so to speak.

SOE needs to bring on Everquest, will probably check this out but seems a little to childish/cartoonish for me.

Will the Free Realms Trading Card Game be available on Free Realms for the PS3 as well? Buying booster packs as you would in the PC version as well?

March 13th, 10:44 am

March 13th, 7:32 pm

does this mean we have to make new accounts because i was reading some of the commments and all that so i might be wrong, O and um do we get to record? and post oline?

juggalorider said:

March 13th, 9:35 pm

@15 same here, i deleted most of my stuff off my ps3 but it said i only had 7GB left but i only had no more than 13GB saved on my HDD, i only now since i copied most of the stuff i needed an reformated my HDD now its fine, i hope!

1 question for about this, will it have a free trial like the PC does, i tried it along with some other PC games but im not a fan of PC gameing, but i also wanna try this first before i even think of putting out money for it

chivaloca11 said:

March 13th, 10:28 pm

ImDoneItsOver said:

March 14th, 12:02 pm

TCG anyone?? Will the Free Realms TCG be included in the PS3 Version? The game has great balance and a very inovative game play system Id love to see it make a return, come on SONY.

Elvick_ said:

March 14th, 1:20 pm

I think it’s fairly lame that I can’t transfer my account. I’m just glad I quit playing early on then, because I’d be furious to get really far and do a ton and not be able to bring it along to the PS3 with me, since that’s what I’ve been waiting on forever.

Emerald_Swords said:

March 14th, 1:31 pm

WOW this looks amazing and FREE !!! Sweet, if i enjoy it enough i’ll gladly hand over some cash to you guys.

TarzanSr said:

March 14th, 1:43 pm

Is there any one time fee for the game? Or is it free to download and free to play?

WARRIOR_4_JC said:

March 14th, 5:58 pm

This is Great. My nephew loves this game on the PC. I am sure we will have some fun. Is it co-op by any chance? Thanks

TotallyOriginal said:

March 14th, 6:18 pm

OahuGrown said:

March 15th, 3:21 am

I am totally stoked. Playing the PC version couple years ago when it launched, i knew this was THE ONE. I am very happy that this is finally going to see the light of day one the PS3. Cheers!

Frostquake said:

March 25th, 7:31 am

I still have codes to use for Free Realms, from the trading cards, will they work on the PS3 version??

zemorph42 said:

March 26th, 2:21 pm

Ok, so will I be able to use the same e-mail to create a free realms acct on psn?

zemorph42 said:

March 26th, 2:25 pm

And are there other free MMOs being considered for the PSN?

MEH2A said:

March 27th, 9:45 pm

Never in Psn.EU ?

while it’s great that SOE is offering a free mmo for PS3, they proves they bungled the DC Universe Online. with the issues that game has, I had to cancel my sub for it, didnt even have headset capability after a month, pathetic…. Anyways, If SOE and SCEA had used the same marketing plan for DC Universe as they are for this game, it would have been a lot more successful, and not as many people P.O.’ed about not being able to purchase lifetime memberships on PS3 compared to PC. think about it, playing for 3 years on PS3, costs double a lifetime fee does on PC, and it sucks. Maybe it would be a smarter idea to make those who don’t have PS Plus play on fee servers, while PS Plus members would get a faster, private server to play on, though the 2 servers would obviously have to communicate with each other. And another thing, where is today’s VR helmets to go with the awesome PS3 graphics? its the only way to submerse us more…

Only free till level 4? that sounds horrible. I already pay a monthly fee for another MMO so I dont want to pay for a so called “free” MMO. Guess I’ll stick with Guild Wars for a free MMO.

Slovo87 said:

March 28th, 10:41 pm

It’s the 29th :)

Where’s mah Free Realmz?! :P

But seriously, anyone know an actual time when it goes live?

Khriz134 said:

March 29th, 6:41 am

If theres going to be trophies how would it work??
F2P could get trophies or you have to subscriibe to activate trophies( like a Game Trial)??
please and thank you for youre answer

FLGATORFAN62 said:

March 29th, 9:16 am

i’ve been waiting all day for free realms to be available to the psn store. still nothing can you give us a round about time that it will be there?

terrasnet said:

March 29th, 10:48 am

29th weres is it

Astroking112 said:

March 29th, 3:50 pm

It won’t load the game for me. I tried playing Free Realms on my PS3 (I had always been wanting to play this game, but didn’t have a home computer fast enough to download it, an was overjoyed when I heard about this.) It keeps on saying “Could not launch the game X Retry” and if I hit cancel it says latest version of game is needed to play. Then why did I wait 40 minutes for the game to download?!?

Ex_SoldierVII said:

March 29th, 5:09 pm

Ok I just downloaded the game and at the end of the update it says could not launch game, I restarted system went to system update and I’m up to date. It still won’t work says can’t launch game. Does any one know what’s up?

GibbShift said:

March 29th, 7:08 pm

$34 for a lifetime pass for a free game? How could I not get this? How big is the file/download for Free Realms?

Astroking112 said:

March 30th, 5:47 am

Why can’t I get on the game? All it says is the game can not load, but then after ten minutes of retrying it says update servers are down for maitenence. Please make it to where you don’t need the latest update to play the game, or fix this issue!

So the PS3 and PC version are not linked to each other. Need separate accounts for each.
Much like Sony to take a good idea and suck it up.
Way to go.

Wont be using this until your devs quit being lazy (“Unfortunately, the logistics involved with synchronized publishes and account linking make it impractical.”) and add a linking feature.

Good for new people I guess.
