Ok, so in Free Realms we have lots of friendly dogs and cute cats that you can adopt and train (even some ghost pets too). And, while the canine and feline pet variations are pretty cool, we have been secretly working on several new breeds of exotic pets for you to have fun with.
Initially when the development team took on the task of designing new pets, the whole character team sat down together and we started throwing out ideas left and right. What would make for some crazy and unique pets? From alpacas and zebras, to turtles and porcupines, we had all kinds of zany suggestions.
Once we had our brainstorm session, we combined our ideas with what the community team had compiled from player requests. This gave us a good idea of whether we were on track or not. We did concept drawings of several of these and picked out what we thought the players would like the most.
So, the next game update will bring you some awesomely adorable companions to choose from:
Ponies! Pegasi! Unicorns!
For the more reptilian friendly, we will release two types of flying dragons and a cute triceratops.
When we started building these new pets, we wanted to make sure they were very different from what you can find in any pet store. As you can see they are very colorful, distinct and whimsical.
Each of these new pets has their own set of tricks and will show off their specialties with some fun shenanigans - dragons breathe fire and unicorns “tinkle” rainbows! We’ve had a blast making them and can’t wait for everyone to get their paws on the new Free Realms pets! ?
Hmmm...I still think a platypus would be cool...
