For those missing Sony Online Entertainment’s long-departed Free Realms, the only hope they’ve had has rested in the hands of a volunteer dev team working to restore the kid-friendly MMO under the name of Free Realms Sunrise. This rogue server has been long in the coming, considering that we started to cover it back in 2017, but progress is indeed being made.

In fact, it sounds as though the project has left the alpha state and is progressing toward beta. The team recently teased one important addition that testers will see when this arrives: “Housing and lots are going to be in beta. We can’t wait for you to escape that one block game and return to a more authentic building experience!”

Considering that this announcement had 727 likes on Twitter, it’s safe to say that there’s a strong contingent of Free Realms fans excited to see the return of their beloved title. Currently, there is no date for the upcoming open beta test.

Can you imagine if this game was up and running during this outbreak how packed it would be?

Free Realms was my favorite game for quite a while until they started locking away some of the best reasons to play behind a paywall.

I used to spend money in their cash shop just to support them but then it changed into a game where I had to spend money to progress.

I really enjoyed the main play loop and it was one of the best communities I ever participated in.

I remember Beau’s streams for it, he streamed last hours of the game, if there is a chance to try the game i’ll do it.

As a Minecraft diehard thats insulting to the fanboy ego. I could likely build circles around whatever Free Realms offers.

My kids’ first MMOG! They got me into it too, and I ended up playing it long after they had grown out of it. :D
