SOE has word that the previously unveiled free-to-play model for its long lasting MMO EverQuest has launched.
"Through 18 successful expansions and countless other game updates, EverQuest has forged its place in history amongst the MMO and online game elite," EverQuest franchise director of development Dave Georgeson asserted in an official statement.
"With one of the most loyal player communities in the industry, we believe that after 13 years we need to provide them with a wide variety of ways to play the game on their terms. Players can now choose to play in a way that suits them best and continue to expand their game experience.”
On top of the pricing model switch, the anniversary celebration (now underway) will add several new content updates and in-game activities for players to partake in.
EverQuest's new free-to-play system is available now on PC to players worldwide, including options for Free, Silver ($5.00) and Gold ($14.99) memberships.
