    -Off topic- @moviequest14: Even though Free Realms is 10+ years old game… every update they make is about money making they do… like TCG Updates, or maybe that Sunstone Valley update that they do… it’s all almost require money, and maybe the new quest in that new place require membership. And for a 10+ years old game, game that costs too much money to play, and I see almost everyone in here is not interested in playing the game that costs too much for a kid.
    And yeah, their playerbase sucks, noobs, people asking for dating, scammer, that’s not even for kids anymore. And many old players from Free Realms are now quitting slowly, because they can’t stand game that costs too much for a kid.

    This is unrelated to the listed game (which by the way,looks pretty dang awesome) , but I wanted to let MMO-Bomb know about the new Free Realms world announcement ( http://www.freerealms.com/article/detail.action?articleId=2582 ) I know Free Realms is one of the worlds you ‘cover’ news wise so this is a pretty big thing considering it is the first new (major) location since the beginning of Free Realms.

    The place looks like Assasins Creed, in the PSP version.

    I understand F2P game need to make money with Cash Shop items but I hope its not a P2W game.

      I wouldn’t worry about the P2W aspect. Bigpoint games, especially their browser games, are completely free-to-play, for their in-game currencies and cash shop currencies can be earned in-game, but it takes far longer to get the cash shop money obviously.

      Even if this gameglobe(browser game I assume), is a P2W mmo, it might probably stand out as a black sheep or just because it is developed by a Squareenix department

        Because it’s dev by square enix mean it will be any different rom any MMO…

        It’s true that you can play Bigpoint game without using any money but don’t expect it
        to be easy or sometimes enjoyable because you can feel sometimes to be forced to buy
        some game currency (which aren’t much expensive if you only need a little).
        Good exemple is Drakensang with the caster, to use stronger spell you need cystal (if im right) and those crystal can mostly be gained through cash shop or sometimes quest.

        Im pretty sure for this game, as it’s a ‘build your world/ adventure” they’ll put limitation in the number of block you can use or restrain access to same.

        Anyway we’ll see, i was quite disapointed by brick force (not the build part, was quite good, but too much lag and the pvp was borring.) , hope this one will be good ^^
