Number of Free Realms players hits 2m

Three-quarters of them are under 17. 

More than 2 million people have signed up for free-to-play MMO Free Realms.

That's young people, to be specific, as 75 per cent of players are under the age of 17. Just under half are under 13 and nearly a third are female. Though presumably that's counting the people who say they're 12 year-old girls but are really 35 year-olds called Ian.

To celebrate, SOE is giving all players a "party pack" of in-game items to play with. There's no word on what this'll include though.

Free Realms lets you fight goblins, complete quests, care for pets and cook meals amongst other things, i.e. punch rats. You can read all about it on the gamepage, and expect a full review soon.
