EverQuest II is Sony Online Entertainment's premier hybrid membership MMORPG sequel to the original iconic EverQuest, and is set 500 years after that time frame. All the beauty and challenge of EQ may also be found in EQII, along with improved features, deeper adventures, and a friendly community. On its own, EQII also brings a beautiful and dangerous world, complete with exciting and engaging locations, battles, quests, and achievements. And it may all be experienced for free!
