The Sims Online emulator might be launching soon

In just two weeks, a long-forgotten social MMORPG might be making a comeback. The team behind FreeSO, a Sims Online emulator, announced on Twitter yesterday that “on 15 May 2017, things are coming.”

Excited about the upcoming announcement? Some members of the community set up a FreeSO Discord channel to chat about the game.

This is the first word we’ve heard from the FreeSO project since its update in late March regarding the progress of its test server. In January, the game had to downshift from open to closed beta due to the popularity that it was generating.

this was kinda cute until Second Life came out, and you got to step into those avatars instead of just god-mode them from heaven above. But hey whatever floats yer boat.

Only emulator I want is original Diablo :)

Wasn’t Sims Online the game that had a server descend into anarchy where people were literally prostituting themselves for ingame currency to pay pitbosses and pimps, and new players were being scalped of their money by conmen players?

I wish them luck. It might even work with a small player base and a touch of accountability.

I remember watching the ad for this game on one of the Sims expansion discs a lot. Never actually played it though, it seemed interesting.

I might have enjoyed it as a kid, but I don’t think I’d have the patience for it now.

How has Electronic Arts not shut this down with a C&D yet?

Because like most people, they probably don’t give a shit. :D

EA didn’t shutdown the million Ultima Online servers.

Yes, but Sims is much closer to home for EA. Especially when they’ve got an online thing, don’t they?

Word is, they’re going to deploy a C&C, and if that fails, a Red Alert.
:D
