EverQuest Gains Thanks To Free-To-Play

EverQuest Gains Thanks To Free-To-Play

Ever since the the long running MMO went free to play this past March, EverQuest has had a rise in unique logins. About a 150 percent spike to be exact.

Sony also had great success switching EverQuest II over to free-to-play as well. When that occurred last December, new accounts rose 300 percent.

User base has also grown by 40 percent and new player registrations have increased by a factor of 3.5. In addition, in game purchases have risen 125% when stacked against figures from before the game went free-to-play

Sony Online Entertainment also has two other MMOs in development, one dubbed EverQuest Next and PlanetSide 2. The latter of which is supposed to launch with a free-to-play model similar to League of Legends.
