How's that free-to-play experiment working out for EverQuest
? Pretty well, according to Sony Online Entertainment's
latest press release. The company has just published a few facts and figures relating to the recent conversion of its long-running fantasy themepark. Some of the more interesting nuggets include a 125% spike in item sales, a 150% uptick in unique log-ins, and over three times as many account registrations when compared to the subscription model.
SOE has also released a handy video recap for EverQuest
newbs. The game has been around since 1999, after all, so have a look at the Living Legend clip after the break to catch up on 13 years of MMO history.
