More info has become available concerning how the upcoming PlayStation 2
MMORPG EverQuest Online Adventures will operate on the console. Players can maintain multiple characters
on one server, however, only one can exist in the game's world at a time. The game will charge users a
monthly fee, though the exact amount is still undetermined.
Players will be able to send pre-made tag phrases to other players using controller
shortcuts to simplify online communication, and a USB keyboard is also supported. Messages can even be
sent through the game system to other friendly players while they're offline. Characters from
EverQuest for the PC can not be transferred to the PS2 game.
EverQuest Online Adventures is scheduled for a Spring 2003 release. The game's official
Web site was recently updated with new screenshots.
