EverQuest 2? Who cares about that game? Well, a fair number of people. Myself included, and I’m pretty hype for the upcoming time-locked progression servers.

Daybreak Games has decided to bring progression servers to EverQuest 2, much in the same vein as they did for the original EverQuest last month to bring back old players and give the current playerbase the option to experience the game in as close to its original state as the community wants.

EverQuest 2‘s forums have been bustling with activity over the past few weeks as the team at Daybreak Games picks the community’s collective brain for what they want to see in the new time-locked progression servers. It’s been a real surprise to see the development team interacting so closely with the community to see what they really want.

The progression servers are public beta launching on July 7th with two servers, one PvE and one PvP. The only hurdle for anyone interested in the classic EverQuest 2 experience is that only All Access members can create characters on these new servers, meaning you need to pony up $15 a month to play on them.

You can read an FAQ on the time-locked servers over at the official forums, but the real bulk of Daybreak’s interactions with the players are sprinkled about the General Discussion forum. If you loved EverQuest 2 back in the day and want to have your say, you owe it to yourself to head on over and give your opinion for the good of Norrath.
