Umm, just noticed the banner up the top - a bit slow maybe...
EQ2 has put out a free trial... already?
Has anyone tried it i wonder?
It's just the tutorial island...not really "immersive" trial in my opinion.
it's the Isle of Refuge.
It contains about 10 class-specific quests plus about 30 various multi-class options. It has crafting resources to level up to 6 in Artisan and likewise for your profession.
If you have never played EQ 2 before and want to try before buy...or even see how your computer fares with it's system requirements...then it's a decent download

Hey, its a free eye-candy machine. I'd get it just to see as your rig fares, and Enigma stated.

I downloaded it, after 2 1/2 hours of installing, it didnt work because of my dang video card, I sure was VERY HAPPY after that happened..

Except IOR Trial is not a good judge of how well you system will run EQ2. It may run fine there, but Qeynos & Freeport will bring most 512mb systems to their knees.

The tutorial is the boat, the island is just a place to "get your feet wet" so to speak. It continues to instruct you in some ways like the boat did, but you have full gameplay ability on the island, including questing, hunting, and tradeskills.

For anyone thinking of trying it, the initial download may be small, but the patch is huge. Don't try this without cable or high end DSL (took me more than an hour on cable).

what version of windows are you running that you didnt just use windows update???

The trial is very very well done. I had totally sworn off EverQuest titles after leaving EQ1 about 1 year ago then saw the trial. I said 'what the heck' and tried it. I now own EQ2 and the SOE All Access pass so I can play SWG, EQ1 with my brother on occasion, EQ2 and PlanetSide
The trial is very good. If you can run the trial you can play the game. Yes, the cities are a bit taxing but it's not horrid. I had very little trouble with a P4 1.2ghz with 512mb of RAM and a GeForce 5700 video card. It didn't have too terribly much trouble as long as I kept the settings slammed at the minimum while in town. Outside town I could set them to pretty decent levels and really enjoy the graphics.
Fortunately I can now play the game maxed out since my tax return let me upgrade
