San Diego-based Sony Online Entertainment
said this morning that it has made its massively mutiplayer online game (MMORPG), EverQuest II
, free to play for PC users. Sony said that PC users will be able to download and install the game without charge, and access both the base game and a number of expansions. The company did not say why it decided to shift its online play model, only saying it will take the game in "exciting new directions." The game has been available since 2004.
