Default EQ Goes Free-to-Play in early March!

With EverQuest II going Free-to-Play in December 2011, it seemed inevitable that the original EverQuest would follow in its younger brother's footsteps. Well, today is that day, as EverQuest Producer Thom "Phathom" Terrazas has just announced that in early March 2012, EverQuest will be going Free-to-Play!

This is some big news for EverQuest players, both current and anyone nostalgic enough to want to set foot back into the game. It also comes alongside EverQuest's 13th birthday on Friday, March 16th! For anyone who hops into the game at EQ's F2P launch, they'll also receive a "Welcome Pack," which includes a unique Mercenary, some Bayle Marks, Experience Potions, a unique in-game item to display in your home, and a Weapon Ornamentation!

SOE has also provided a player matrix to give more detail on how they plan to implement this Free-to-Play transition, and it looks like it shouldn't have too much (if any) of an impact on pre-existing subscribers, while still offering some easier options for returning players. Finally, SOE will also be hosting a Community Webcast on Thursday, February 2, 2012 to cover this shift, so be sure to get your questions in on the EverQuest Facebook Page or via Twitter to @EverQuest.
