Today, Dave “SmokeJumper” Georgeson, EQ2’s Senior Producer announced EverQuest 2 Extended, a version of EQ2, that is rather limited but free to play.
The FAQ on it is located here. To me, it seems like a unlimited trial, very similar to Age of Conan, limited in what classes/races you can pick, and not being able to chat in certain channels. Obviously SOE want a piece of the very lucrative F2P pie, and call my cynical, but I personally think this is ridiculous.
Payment options etc. after the break.
Worth noting that this is separate from the main game servers, but it looks like bad shareware, and I can’t see the community liking it.
Any thoughts on it? Not currently playing EQ2, looks like I dropped my subscription at the right time…
