EverQuest online adventure could well be one of the strangest spin-offs of the fairly expansive EverQuest Franchise. And while this late, great PlayStation 2 MMORPG is no longer with us, former players paused to toast the game as its 20th anniversary drew to a close on February 11th.
Although EQOA Shut down in March 2012, many fans still remember the sleek and chunky console version. “On February 11, 2003, my life changed forever! I met my wife in this game who is still happily married,” said one player.
“This magic of a huge, wide, open and dangerous world. No map, no mount, no real guides, just a compass and some friends! Lightning in a bottle for me. I’ve been hunting this dragon for 20 years now. For me there has never been anything I’m afraid,” said another.
A rogue server called Project: Return Home has been in the works for some time but hasn’t garnered much attention in the last two years, with the last major build being released back in February 2021. Devs in Discord celebrated their own 10th anniversary back in December and said they’ve been working on NPC dialogue and traders.
