Everquest II: Play The Fae Trial

That's right, that other big MMORPG Everquest II is still going strong. As you guys may know, SOE just launched the newest expansion for Everquest II a couple of weeks ago - aptly named Echoes of Faydwer. The new trial for the popular MMORPG allows you to play as the new playable race - the Fae, a fairy like race of beings that float above the ground slightly and have gorgeously animated wings and colors to boot. You can play the trial for 7 days, completely free of charge - there is no credit card or previous subscription needed here. After the 7 days are up, you will of course have to buy the expansion and pay for a subscription to continue to play if you so choose. But buying the expansion is great, because for $40 US you get the original game itself, and all of the expansions in one DVD bundle. Great way to start off if you are new to the Everquest II world I think.

Echoes of Faydwer adds a ton of new content to the game. You can literally start a new character in the land of the Fae and go from level 1 to 70 without ever leaving the expansion areas. Now that's how you do an expansion baby! The level cap was left at 70, but there is content for everyone. New players, old players, everyone has something to do. Over 20 new zones, over 350 new quests, 40+ new NPCs, new player cloaks, more PvP stuff, new achievements to use, and the new God system! Whew, that's all I can think of off the top of my head.

So head on over to the sign up page, download the trial and start floating about the new starting city of Kelethin!
