Sony Online Entertainment has announced the official launch of Everquest II: Extended, the free-to-play version of the original. The Extended version allows players to take on the entire game, paying only for what they wish without the need for a subscription. To celebrate the launch, SOE is offering all players a cosmetic staff that can be picked up in Freeport.
It's official! SOE has removed BETA from the logo and is proud to announce the official launch of EverQuest II Extended.
To celebrate the launch, EQ2X players can claim their free Staff of the Rising Phoenix from the in-game Marketplace on the Freeport server.
