Free Realms is SOE’s latest MMORPG but unlike its previous titles, this one is free-to-play with an option to subscribe for premium content. The company best known for the early pay-to-play hit Everquest has now officially embraced the F2P model, and that’s good news for everyone. Free Realms has the high production value and level of detail you would expect from a top-quality developer, which helps set it apart from most of the rushed grindfests we see popping up these days. It’s obvious that Free Realms targets the kids market, but that doesn’t mean older gamers can’t enjoy it. Each character can freely switch between fourteen jobs though must level each up separately. Each job has a unique play style. You play cooking mini-games similar to those found in the DS title Cooking Mama or kart racing mini-games similar to the Mario Kart series. The jobs available are:
All players - Ninja, Chef, Kart Driver, Postman, Demolition Derby Driver, Brawler, Pet Trainer, Card Duelist, and Miner
Subscribers only - Archer, Wizard, Medic, Blacksmith, Warrior
