Exclusive EverQuest® and EverQuest® II In-game Items in MOG 18

DALLAS, TX - March 11, 2009 - This year marks the 10th anniversary of the launch of Sony Online Entertainment’s groundbreaking MMO, EverQuest® (EQ). In celebration of EQ’s epic milestone, Beckett Massive Online Gamer (MOG) Issue 18 features commemorative cover art by famed fantasy artist Donato Giancola and will include a unique in-game item for EQ and EQII subscribers in the issue on sale this week. The items include an EverQuest Aqua Goblin Familiar and an EverQuest II Nagafen at Rest golden dragon statue.

• The EQ Aqua Goblin is a totem to one of the unnamed gods that will grant you complete obedience from one of their ilk in the form of an aqua goblin familiar.

• With the EQII Nagafen at Rest, you’ll be able to grace your guild hall or home with a detailed golden statue of the ancient dragon Nagafen perched atop a stone pedestal.

In addition to the two free in-game items included with the purchase of MOG 18, gamers can read all about the EverQuest legacy in a special tribute that includes interviews with three top EQ designers, plus helpful Class and Dungeon Guides for EQII. Readers will also get information on SOE’s upcoming game Free Realms™, including Beta registration and a first-look at the interactive pets feature.

“EverQuest is an MMO game that has withstood the test of time and continues to entertain gamers of all ages. We’re very proud to celebrate this historical event with SOE by including great feature stories and exclusive in-game items in our newest issue,” says Doug Kale, Editorial Director of MOG.“This issue is also a cool collector’s item for anyone who has ever played EQ or EQII.”
