The closed beta for EverQuest II Extended is considered completely different from the normal subscription-based EverQuest II game. That’s the important bit to get out first. But since this can easily become confusing, I contacted SOE regarding this topic to make sure the correct answer is given. See how much I love you?
August 17th will be the open beta launch date for the EverQuest II Extended service, but the final release date hasn’t been announced yet. I highly recommend making your way through SOE’s own FAQ regarding the new service as well as this membership matrix, which will help you differentiate the content that will be available for the Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum memberships.
Looks like I will need to try to join open beta for this.
