EQ FTP and 13th Anniversary Game Update- 15MAR (24HR Down)

Postby Tarvas » Mon Mar 12, 2012 1:16 pm

EverQuest Free to Play and 13th Anniversary Game Update – Extended Downtime Notification

On Thursday, March 15, 2012, at 12:01 AM PDT* (midnight) the EverQuest servers will be taken offline in preparation for the launch of EverQuest Free to Play. Your Way. Downtime is expected to last until Friday, March 16, 2012, at 12:01 AM PDT (midnight).

This year we are combining the Anniversary update with EverQuest going free-to-play, so the servers will be down for a full 24 hours. More information about the 13th Anniversary will be posted later this week.

While the servers are down you can join us on the EverQuest forums, the EverQuest Facebook page, and on the EverQuest Twitter feed for updates, games, and more! We will also have an EverQuest Anniversary webcast on Twitch.tv starting at 4:30 PM PDT, and we will release an EverQuest themed podcast.

Mark your calendars and get ready for one huge celebration, with the 13th Anniversary events and the transition to free-to-play both coming on March 16th!

Better stock up on the alcohol so you can deal with your spouses.

So I'm dusting off old accounts, trying to find character I played ages past...

Sort of disturbing I remember exactly where I place Gate in my spellbooks, 5 years since I last played...
