EverQuest 2 Trial
Sony and FilePlanet are running a deal right now where you can try out EverQuest 2 for free. Unlike other trials, there’s no time limit–you’re merely constrained to one location in the game and you can’t take your character past level 6.
I downloaded the trial, and I have to laugh.
The code to run the trial was a 1.4GB download which took me about 3-4 hours from FilePlanet’s junk servers. Extracting the zip file and installing the game took 15-20 minutes. Getting the game up to the latest version with all of the updates took another 15-20 minutes. Upgrading to DirectX 9.0c (I had 9.0b) took yet another 15-20 minutes. At the end of everything it took me about 5 hours to get the game running.
And then it took me about an hour to run through and play the entire trial before they wanted me to buy the full version.
I have to laugh. Ha. Jokes on me I suppose.
