July 1, 2011— In GameSamba's free-to-play MMORPG Realms Online, the Redcoats are coming—and they want brains! Starting Friday, July 1 st, get ready for two weeks of 4 th of July festivities as players must purge the warzone of the invading redcoat zombie forces. Killing the zombies and keeping their realms safe will allow players to earn special Independence Day costumes, modeled after colonial era clothing.

Not only will players be able to defeat undead foes, but they'll also enjoy a number of other activities, including firework shows put on by Realms GMs, American Flag banners playing the national anthem throughout the world, Find the GM, Bonus XP events, and more. In addition, special 4 th of July items such as fireworks and Uncle Sam hats will be added to the cash shop, available for purchase for the duration of this event. These and other items will also be awarded to players for participation in events.

Joining in on the July festivities is a special sneak peek at the upcoming unicorn mount. A code will be available for one week on the  Realms Online Facebook page, also starting July 1 st, which will reward players with free week-long usage of the unicorn before it's available in the shop.

For more information on these and future Realms Online events, you can check out the  events calendar on the  official Realms Online website. You can also watch the  event announcement video on the  Realms Online YouTube Channel.

About Realms Online

Realms Online is a free-to-play fantasy MMORPG with an emphasis on player vs player combat. Players join one of three warring realms, and battle to conquer their foes. RvR activities include fort capture, castle capture, and gem capturing. By capturing forts and castles, an enemy realm will be vulnerable to attack, allowing the opposing sides to invade in an attempt to steal the vulnerable realm's precious gems. When a realm controls all of the gems, they are granted a special wish from the Golden Dragon. For more information, visit
