SONY ONLINE ENTERTAINMENT OFFERS EVERQUEST® II COMMITMENT FREE PASSPORT PROGRAM

?

WHAT: Players can start packing their virtual bags for a three day getaway to Norrath without the long-lines, traffic and flight delays! Beginning on April 20, 2010 Sony Online Entertainment’s hit title EverQuest? II will offer a new commitment free access plan. Eligible inactive EverQuest II accounts in good standing can purchase a three-day getaway passport for only $4.99USD (plus applicable taxes). This program provides gamers a convenient and economical option to participate in game update events, bonus XP weekends, multiboxing, special promotions and Station Cash™ sales.

ABOUT THE PASSPORT PROGRAM: Players with inactive or closed accounts, in good standing, can purchase the Passport Program access plan for $4.99USD (plus applicable taxes) and receive three consecutive days of access to EverQuest II per 30-day period. To continue to play EQII after expiration of the 30-day period in which the EQII passport was purchased, players must subscribe to a standard monthly subscription or purchase another EQII passport for 3 consecutive days of gameplay during that 30-day period. Game play and access are subject to the EQII end-user license agreement, Rules of Conduct and Sony Online Entertainment’s Terms of Service. Visiting Norrath has never been so simple or economical. This is the most convenient option available for various types of casual accounts including:

• Weekend Warrior - This is the chance for players to continue to play the game they love, with friends and, most importantly, when they want!

• Party Crasher - With the EQII Passport, alt accounts or inactive accounts will not have to miss another seasonal event or special game update. Gamers can visit Norrath to participate in fun-filled events and festivities at a discount.

• Item Hoarder - Don’t miss another login bonus or promotional "claim" special again! Just because an account is inactive doesn't mean your collection of goodies should suffer.

• Penny Pinching Multiboxers - Running several subscriptions might be a bit expensive these days, but not with this program! Fire up alt accounts for a weekend raid or even a Battlegrounds match all by yourself!

WHEN: The Passport Program is set to launch on April 20, 2010.
