The EverQuest site has been updated with a new producer letter to kick off the game's 20th anniversary. "EQ's launch feels a world away now, lest we forget dial-up modems, Y2K panic, CRT monitors, 640jx480, open-book medding, corpse runs, lost corpses, ninja looting, guild drama, dawn of DKP and so many other moment." the blog reads.
We’ve heard so many amazing stories of EQ bringing people together in love, marriage, and even into the joys of parenthood. We’ve also experienced the power of our game community during the hard times, softening the pain of illness and tragic deaths by participating with EQ families. We all have an EverQuest story to tell.
To celebrate the amazing EQ community, Holly Longdale has revealed that this year's anniversary event will feature a new land, raids and rares "with stories about preserving our past". This event will be free to anyone who wishes to play.
Other notable anniversary events include:
- hardcore and ultra-casual progression servers will be added in March
- EQ fan events are in the planning stages for summer
- the chance to send a short video about "how EQ changed YOUR life" to become part of an EQ 20th Yearbook album
