1. Heavy Water – Avalon Keep
Heavy Water brings you a new experience in the realm of private apartments with the expansive Avalon Keep Personal Apartment. Will you become a Lord or Lady of Avalon? Those who purchase within the first 30 days of release will receive Royal Crystal Crowns, for male and female, as an exclusive reward. These crowns are made from the rarest Avalonian Crystals and pulse with their own inner light. Don’t forget about all the other features this space offers: Gift Machine, owner only furniture rewards, interactive NPCs, banner/theme changes, dynamic day/night cycle and the Dragonfly Automaton.
2. Heavy Water – Heavy Peeps Update
Heavy Water’s isn’t just releasing Avalon Keep; they’ve taken the Peeps and given them an update where it really counts. The companions are now bigger with more animations and a jump sound effect. Bring that Peep companion out of storage and see how much they’ve grown! Now thanks to a new control scheme, moving your Peep is just like controlling your PlayStation Home avatar. The active item has also been reduced to only six furniture slots. Place multiple Heavy Pets out and explore your apartments from a new perspective.
3. Digital Leisure – Video Poker comes to the Casino
A wild new game has appeared! Video Poker has made its way to The Casino. If you love poker, but prefer to play alone, then this game is for you.

4. Hellfire Games – Novus Prime Companions
Novus Prime gets an update this week with three new Ship Companions!
