EverQuest Turning 20

Producer's Letter on the EverQuest Website celebrates the upcoming 20th anniversary of EverQuest, the venerable MMORPG that was so addictively popular back in the day that it earned the nickname EverCrack (thanks Ken). The letter, written by Executive Producer Holly "Windstalker" Longdale, has more perspective on the state of 20th century computing at the game's debut in March 1999: "EQs launch feels a world away now, lest we forget dial-up modems, Y2K panic, CRT monitors, 640x480, open-book medding, corpse runs, lost corpses, ninja looting, guild drama, dawn of DKP, and so many other moments." Word is they still have plans for new content and servers, as well as an IRL celebration they say is likely to come this summer:

In this anniversary year, lets live the legacy of EQ and turn it up to 20, and focus on what has made this game great you, the community.

Our anniversary events in game in March include a brand new land, raids, and rares with a story about preserving our past, and its free.

We are aiming at two new progression servers with two approaches one hardcore and one ultra-casual. Rules will be coming soon as we sort them out over the coming weeks with both new servers launching around the anniversary on March 16.

We also want to celebrate with you IRL! Were working on pulling together an EQ fan event so we can hang out with you, our honored guests. Timing for that event is likely to be summer, but Im hoping to announce more details on timing/location in March for those who want to plan ahead with your own family, guildies, and friends and join us!
