MMOHut, "Sony Online Entertainment announced a completely free to play version of one of their Flagship game – EverQuest II. The free to play version is dubbed EverQuest 2: Extended, which will be seperate from the current pay to play EQ 2 servers. This free to play version has some limitations, but make no mistake, this is the real deal. Without having to pay a dime, gamers will have FULL access to EverQuest II The Shadow Odyssey – which includes the base game, 5 expansion packs and three adventure packs. All of this content is available completely for free under the “Bronze” package for the EverQuest II: Extended membership plans. Players will have access to only four races and eight classes, but additional classes and races are unlockable via paid purchases – much like Dungeons and Dragons Online..."
