“The Combine” and “The Sleeper” Progression Servers will allow all players to start on a level playing field as they explore the online world of EverQuest as it was in the beginning
Sony Online Entertainment is giving EverQuest players both new and old a chance to experience the largest persistent world as it was in the very beginning by launching two Progression serves: “The Combine” and “The Sleeper”. At launch, the Progression servers will consist of the EverQuest zones in Antonica, Faydwer and Odus that were available at launch back in 1999. Players will work together to level and conquer key content that will in turn progressively unlock every expansion released for EverQuest since 1999 up through 2006’s Prophecy of Ro. Players must have the EverQuest base game to begin the progression and must have purchased the software for each expansion pack they are trying to unlock. In conjunction with this unique opportunity to start over again with EverQuest, qualifying inactive EverQuest accounts will be activated for a 30-day trial period and those players will gain access to some Station Players™ features.
The Progression servers will feature the following:
“The Combine” and “The Sleeper” Progression servers launch on June 28, 2006
