EverQuest Mac Gets Reprieve
2:28 PM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Massively is reporting that the Mac server of EverQuest will not be shut down, a reversal of the previously stated plans by Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley. In a Twitter post Smedley promised that players will now be able to continue with the Mac version of the MMO as-is, with no subscription fees.

Yes, there is apparently both a Santa Claus and a Tooth Fairy, because John Smedley has stated that not only are the EQMac fans "a wonderful group of players," the game will be left running. Better yet, it will continue to run as-is and with no subscription fees. If you're part of the fanbase, no, you don't need to pinch yourself, this is actually a thing that is happening. Further details are to be announced soon, but just the facts alone should make fans very happy.

Frictional Games, developer of the spooky Penumbra and Amensia: The Dark Descent survival horror titles, has unveiled a new website teasing the next title in the Amnesia series. Featuring a blurred image and the words "Something is emerging...," the site also links to a map of China.
