Welcome to a new virtual life
PK XD, fully titled “PK XD - Explore and Play with your Friends!”, is a free adventure mobile video game wherein you get to live in a cute virtual world. Developed by PlayKids Inc., this 3D simulation game lets you customize your own avatar, do social activities with strangers and friends, and just have fun. This is considered a life simulation game like Roblox but does not offer as many creative avenues as the other game.
Is PK XD free?
In PK XD, your virtual life will mostly revolve around character customization, home decoration, pet care, social interaction with friends, and minigames. This game features cute but vibrant 3D graphics, which makes it great for the ages 3 and above. Additionally, all content is kid-friendly and most of the social interactions—such as emojis, pre-selected messages, and character animations—are appropriate for any player. The main issue here, however, is how limited customization actually is.
You start off by creating a character of your own with the free items available on the Character Creation screen—although you’ll generally be given a bit of money so you can already start purchasing some choices. You can also purchase with real money. The characters are genderless by default so you can choose whichever outfit or look you want for them. However, the appearances are quite limiting with only human looks to choose from, unlike other games.
Afterward, you can start exploring the virtual world. There’s no story to follow. Be it playing minigames, talking to others, or participating in events, you can begin whichever piques your interest. However, most of the good stuff must be bought using the in-game currencies that you earn by doing activities—and unfortunately for the multiplayer minigames, there’s not a lot of choices available so you’ll get bored fast unless you have friends with you.
Needs more features
All in all, PK XD is a great game for younger kids due to how it’s designed. It has colorful 3D graphics and social interactions such as chatting have filtered and ready-to-send text messages—although you can still enable free chat. While the customization options are highly limited in nature and there’s not a lot of areas you can access due to the map being small, it’s still a great free-to-play game to try out.
