A matrix detailing the three new EQII membership levels is available here:http://everquest2.com/free_to_play/game_overview.

The new membership system coincides with the launch of EverQuest II‘s 62nd overall game update –Freeport Reborn . Available for free to all players, the new game update follows an aftermath of violence and disorder in Freeport. Here, citizens are called to action by the returning Overlord Lucan D’Lere to help eliminate those who betrayed him, consolidate his hold on the city, and restore Freeport to its rightful place as Norrath’s center of power. Transformed into a single zone with a convenient central commerce hub by the docks, the revamped Freeport features new quests at different levels that allow all players to assist the local citizens and learn more about the Freeport story.

Additionally today, Age of Discovery , EQII‘s eighth expansion is now available for purchase. Age of Discovery allows players to make their mark in-game with the Dungeon Maker feature, play as theEverQuest fan-favorite Beastlord class, and hire Mercenaries for help in their heroic battles.
