SOE has announced that the original EverQuest is going free to play.
The highly popular title will now be split into three tiers of play, Free, Silver and Gold membership, allowing you to decide how much to pay, based on how much fun you’re having.
“We’re excited to be expanding the EverQuest experience by making the game more accessible to every type of player so that you can choose to play the game in a way that suits you best,” says EverQuest Producer, Thom Terrazas in an open letter to fans.
“Anyone who wishes to start, return or continue to play one of the “Best Games of All-Time” can simply download and play EverQuest on their terms – think of it as Free to Play, Your Way.
“We, the EverQuest dev team, are very excited about this new flexible system. Free-To-Play is the best fit for EverQuest and we are looking forward to supporting the game and our dedicated fans for years to come. This is a great year for everyone associated with EverQuest and SOE. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what’s coming in 2012.”
