NEWS: Everquest going F2P on March 2012

To celebrate it’s 13th Anniversary, Everquest will be going Free 2 Play this March.

After the change, the game will have three options to play for the game, the subscription based Gold ($15 a month) model, and the Silver (one time $5 payment) and free to play model, which will limit players to four races and classes.

Everquest is one of the legendary games of the MMO genre, with a lot of controversy surrounding it as the outside world first learned about MMO’s for the first time, including video game addiction.

In 2008, we interviewed Liz Woolley, founder of Online Gamers Anonymous, whose son committed suicide while playing Everquest.
