EverQuest Ragefire Progression Server Beta is Live

Who is this company that claims to once have been Sony Online Entertainment, yet uses the word “soon” unironically as though it meant something?

Even as I was digesting bits of the forum thread about the server poll results last night, a new thread went up saying that the Ragefire Beta Server had gone live.

Ragefire awakens!

Ragefire awakens!

You need a special client for the beta, which is linked in that forum post, and it is a 10GB download, so we’re getting a lot of the game.  But on the upside, the beta/preview is open to all accounts, not just those on Daybreak All Access.  So testing is like, free.

Tell that to the H1Z1 team.  Or the Landmark team.

Of course, being beta… and the server is literally called “beta” in the launcher… it isn’t always up and running.  I haven’t been able to get in yet, though I can see the server.

Your server option...

Your server option…

And while they are getting feedback in the forum thread about the beta server going live, they are officially pointing people towards the EverQuest section on Reddit… because Smed.  Of course, as noted before, that just takes moderation out of their hands, and not everybody is happy about the poll results.

Anyway, I hope they get things together so I can take a look this weekend.

    A beta in 2015 for a game that came out in 1999…hmmm. There’s a metaphysics exam question in there somewhere. I would lime to say I’m going to skip this but I have a nice new Hard Drive that’s almost empty and I guess I’ll have to download the new client eventually…

    I wonder if this thing would run on my Tablet – EQ2 does…

    @Bhagpuss – Well, they have betas for the expansions all the time, so there is that. But yes, there is something about having a beta for a revival of the original 1999 content that does make you go, “Hrmm…” And then there is the free beta for the server that will require a subscription from the “Free to Play Your Way” company that charges for pre-beta on its new games.

    Anyway, I don’t have to make the decision about Daybreak Access yet.


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
