    Wasn't aware this kind of info is news worthy.

    Everquest 2, Champions Online, DC Universe Online, Lineage 2, (Almost) Aion, and a few others I forgot were pay to play, but are now free to play also.

    F2P is the way to go now it seems. Companies make much more profit through micro transactions.

    I'm just impressed that Everquest is still sticking around. I'm starting to believe that it may in fact be immortal, though only time will tell.

    I wonder how long it'll take for Ultima Online to turn into F2P.

    I'd love to play it on official servers so much ;o;

    I love EverQuest :) Played this in college, and have dabbled with it over the last decade whenever I get that itch. I've never played an MMO with PvE that satisfied me the way this game did. It might be time to dust my necro off. :)

    EverQuest 2 was already F2P, why would we care so much about EverQuest 1 then?

    Everquest 2 had better graphics and was supposedly the sequel, but it never really reached the quality and playability that the first game had, hence the first was older but by far superior.
