Are you a gamer who is afraid of commitment?  Is paying full price for multiple EverQuest II accounts breaking the bank?  Sony Online Entertainment has come up with a way for players to have their cake and eat it, too.  Today, SOE introduced the Passport Program

It basically gives players a three-day pass to play EverQuest II for $4.99.  This program is aimed at players with inactive or closed accounts (in good standing) who want to jump back into the game.  There are other restrictions, incentives, and reasoning so read on if you are interested.


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. Entering billing information for a standard monthly subscription prior to the end of the three day Passport Program period will terminate the Passport period and you will lose the balance of any unused Passport Program game time. 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.
