SOE sends words that the EverQuest II beta is getting set to wrap up tomorrow,
as the MMORPG sequel is set to roll out on Monday:
On behalf of the
entire EverQuest II team, I want to thank everyone who has participated in our
beta test over the last several months on the English, French, and German
servers. Your feedback has been immeasurably valuable throughout the testing
process by helping us find bugs and polish our gameplay. EverQuest II wouldn't
be what it is today without your involvement.
We're very excited that EverQuest II will be launching on November 8. In
preparation for the release of the game, our beta test will be concluding Friday
night, November 5. At midnight PST, we will be shutting down the beta servers
and deleting all characters and items. Our official forums will be temporarily
closing at the same time so that we can restructure the boards and be ready for
a fresh start when the game goes live.
EverQuest II will begin shipping to retailers in the US on Monday, November 8,
with dozens of servers awaiting the arrival of thousands of players into a brand
new world. The European versions of EverQuest II will begin shipping across
Europe on November 11, with French and German language servers ready for play.
Update: Due to overwhelming demand, the EverQuest II Beta will be
extended for an additional 12 hours, until Saturday, November 6th at noon
