EverQuest II delays The Menagerie, grants 3X experience all weekend

EverQuest II players know the game suffered some unanticipated and lengthy downtime this week. Daybreak says it was dealing with “technical issues with [its] servers” and thinks it has those licked, but it’s delaying GU103: The Menagerie (as well as the planned level 100 boost promo) to May 9th all the same.

The good news is that today and tomorrow, the game is making up for all that with a massive experience buff.

“To thank you for your patience and support, we’ll be activating Triple XP (AA, Adventure, Tradeskill) for ALL players and ALL servers starting now. This will run until Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 11:59PM PDT (07:00 UTC),” Daybreak writes. “In addition, we’ll be activating Double Ascension Scrolls starting on Monday, May 1, 2017 at 12:01AM PDT (7:00 UTC). This will run through Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 11:59PM PDT (07:00 UTC).

Have fun!

PSA: Get Elder Scrolls Online super cheap through the Humble Bundle this weekend

Thinking about giving The Elder Scrolls Online a go as the march toward Morrowind pushes on toward June? You probably won’t find a cheaper deal between then and now than the Humble Bundle’s prices.

You’re looking at $9.89 for the cheapskate version for people who just want a looksee, but the Gold edition for $29.99 is probably the best deal, since it includes most of (though not all) of the DLC packs to date.

Anybody picking it up?

PSA: Champions Online’s freeform slots are half-off

If you haven’t picked up Champions Online as a free player, you might not know that the game restricts unfettered character creation for F2P. Instead, freeloaders are restricted to pre-built archetypes that don’t allow for the fun of mix-and-matching your own vision.

That is, unless you either subscribe or purchase a “freeform” slot unlock for your account. A freeform slot grants the full privileges of slapping your own build together to see how it functions. And while these slots are usually pretty pricey (around $50), right now Champions Online is holding a half-off sale on freeform slots, bringing the tag down to 2,500 zen (around $25).

The sale is running from today through next Thursday. Also, conspiracy theory, is this sale capitalizing on City of Heroes’ anniversary this week? Hmm…

Final Fantasy XIV announces the last PlayStation 3 login campaign and a new Amazon promotional campaign

With the release of its second expansion, Final Fantasy XIV will no longer be supported on the PlayStation 3. There’s a free upgrade to the PlayStation 4 available through the end of the year, but there’s another bone being thrown to those still playing on the last console generation. The last free login campaign is going live on the console from May 1st until June 15th, allowing those on the console to play for free on the console until support is shut down.

Of course, those of us on the PC won’t have that issue… so why not celebrate with a repeat of last year’s Amazon cross-promotion? Yes, it came back, and this time you can pick up an assortment of items themed after a journey to the East. Buying $20 worth of video games and/or game accessories (which you can do from this link to also help out the site, incidentally) will net you a promotional code for an outfit, weapon, mount, and 50 free Aetheryte tickets, so that should make the impending journeys a bit more pleasant.

PSA: RuneScape’s sub fee is effectively $0 this month for Twitch Prime peeps

Remember last fall when Twitch and Amazon announced Twitch Prime, a new combined service for Prime that grants customers a bunch of video game and Twitch perks in addition to shipping discounts? Right now, those perks are lighting up the night for RuneScape players, so if you’re an existing player or you’ve been considering giving the apparently absurdly popular MMORPG a go, and you’re already subbing to Prime, definitely take advantage.

Jagex notes that Twitch Prime members can currently pick up an entire freebie sub month, an exclusive legendary pet, a pack of 15 treasure hunter keys, and 200 cash-shop currency (RuneCoins). That also means access to Old-School RuneScape for a month too.

Newbies and existing players alike can take advantage of the promotion; just follow the official instructions to apply your Twitch Prime code to your new or old RuneScape account. Hooray for free stuff.
