Sony Online Entertainment has announced that former EverQuest II players can return to the game for free to join in on the second Sentinel’s Fate pre-launch event, Will of a Tyrant.
Players who left the game sometime in the last two years and have an account in good standing are invited to take part in the event, which takes place in Freeport and Qeynos. From 9 to the 31 December, these former players may join subscribers and gain access to The Shadow Odyssey as a free trial. If they decide to convert the trial to a paid subscription and buy the upcoming Sentinel’s Fate expansion, they will receive the in-game item – a ‘Marble Effigy of Al’Kabor’, 250 Station Cash and access to the Sentinel’s Fate beta, which kicks off around 19 January.
