About the Game

EverQuest is a huge fantasy MMO that's been in operation since 1999, and while other games have surpassed it in popularity, its reputation as the Grand Old Man of the genre is unchallenged. Beginning as one of 16 unique races, some good, some evil and some who just don't care, and choosing from 16 classes, players can advance through 90 levels of character development as they explore more than 500 zones packed with over 50,000 different items to discover and collect.

EverQuest encourages cooperative, party-based play, and most of the game revolves around quests assigned by NPCs. Solo, group and raid missions are all available, along with special seasonal and holiday events that are held throughout the year. NPC mercenaries can be hired when the going gets tough, and more support can be found in the guilds that any player can join. PvP action is available but is limited to a single server where you can be attacked at any time - be ready for action if you go!

Amazingly, even though it's almost old enough to start high school, EverQuest continues to enjoy ongoing development and growth. The most recent expansion pack, EverQuest: Rain of Fear, came out in November 2012, and Sony says that it will continue to focus development efforts on the game's "vibrant and evolving world." And in March of 2012, Sony opened it up to an even wider audience by adding a free-to-play tier and an upgraded, "pay once, play forever" mid-range tier on top of the standard "all access" monthly subscription plan.

Players can enhance their experience even further through the in-game Marketplace, which offers a wide variety of items for sale, including mounts, house items, clothing and more. And through the Player Studio, players themselves can design brand-new items for the game, which may even be chosen by Sony for sale in the Marketplace, earning real money for its creator.

EverQuest is one of the richest and most expansive gaming experiences ever created, a continuously-evolving fantasy world populated by thousands of people engaged in epic adventure. Join them, and earn your place in the history of one of the most legendary videogames of all time!
