Free-to-Play EverQuest II Next Month

A new producer's letter announces EverQuest II is going full-on free-to-play next month after operating as a divided subscription/free combo platter. The letter is lengthy, going into extensive detail on how this will impact players of the MMORPG sequel, but it concludes with a handy summary:

All of this (and more) is planned to happen on the same day in early December (we'll announce the exact date as we get closer):

        • "Age of Discovery" expansion launch (pre-order available now!).
        • GU 62 -"Freeport Reborn" launch, free to all players!
        • Free-to-play conversion.
        • A brand new website with an all new players section!

And more. Yes, there's still more that needs to firm up before being announced!
When all is said and done, there will only be two types of servers, PvE and PvP. You'll have complete flexibility on payment options. There will no longer be a mandatory up-front cost of any sort.

Everyone will be a winner.

Today, we'll be doing a Community Webcast covering all of this. Please be sure to send in any questions you might have via the Facebook page or Twitter so we can respond with answers during the Webcast!

You're going to love Age of Discovery, and Freeport is fantastic. Now that everything else is so incredibly flexible as well, there's a ton to love about EQII. We're looking forward to a great future with you!
