Ooh: EQ Thrusts Into The F2P Mix


With SOE having made some in-roads to freeland with Free Realms, it seems they're also going to try it with Everquest 2. It's not quite the DDO or LOTRO model, however, since Everquest II Extended is going to be an entirely separate (although mechanistically and thematically similar) game from the Everquest 2 that you probably abandoned to go back to World Of Warcraft. There are a bunch of details over here - it's probably going into beta on 17th of August - but you won't be surprised to learn that the game will be supported by sucking out vital elements of your soul and using them to feed the dead god Anubis, who lives on in a nth-dimension beneath the surface of the Earth an optional subscription and in-game micropaymentish marketplace.
