EverQuest II: Age of Discovery, Game Update 62, and Free-to-Play Conversion Launched!

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Expansion News, Game Updates & Maintenance

A few (22) hours behind schedule, EverQuest II has launched their Age of Discovery expansion, which includes the Beastlord class, Item Reforging, Tradeskill Apprentices, Mercenaries, and the Dungeon Maker. Today also marks the introduction of a revamped Freeport, with new questlines starting at level 20 and every 10-20 levels until level 80. Also, EverQuest II has now gone entirely free-to-play. The Freeport server joins the other EQ2 servers as a regular server, and players can start on any server they like, either at the Free, Silver, or Gold levels. Heck even Frostfell goes live today.

If you are an EQ2 subscriber, then NOTHING changes for you.

LAUNCHERS: If you are using any of the older launchers such as the original EQ2.exe launcher in the Retail box, the blue-grey Station Launcher, or Launchpad 3 (either regular or streaming), you must upgrade to either the regular or streaming version of Launchpad 4 before you can patch in and play EverQuest II. If you point the installation at your current EQ2 directory, you will only need to download approximately 2.4GB of data. See our Launchpad 4 Patcher article for more info.

VETERAN REWARDS: If you are not able to see Veteran Rewards in your Claim windows, this will be fixed in tomorrow’s hotfix!

GUIDES:

See you in the game!

    Aaaand I can’t access half my characters because it says I don’t have enough slots. Guess that whole thing didn’t work out quite right.

    First thing, i had to hard reset my PC last night as it tried to update and launch. Finally get things going and all servers are still down.

    Today I log in to check things out and every character i have on my main account doesn’t have appropriate this or that. Come on not one character opened up without having to resort to dropping cash.

    I have no tolerance for this anymore, later.

    They forgot one small thing… merging Vox and the Bazaar. Lame.

    My account is bugged, so no playing for me until billing resolves the issue. Any bets on how long that will take? I am a sad panda.

    If your a Gold sub what did you have to pay for? I logged in just fine on my sub account and had full access to everything. Although some stuff is bugged such as our GH is messed up and it wont let me change anything even as a guild leader and the known issue with vet rewards that was mentioned in the post by Feldon.

    I’m having the same problem… I was a Gold sub, still listed as Gold on the SOE website, but in game it’s treating me as Bronze; in my character window it says “Subscription type: Free”. My sister’s account, however, works fine. Not really worried that I won’t get my access back, but I’m hoping this gets fixed relatively quickly… the only toon I can access is a Velious 90, and therefore, everything about her is beyond the Bronze limits…
