$90 for a digital-only copy of the 18th EverQuest expansion sounds perfectly reasonable, right guys?

Seriously though, I doubt they expect to sell any copies at that price. The price increase is just to pressure current players to pre-order. They did the same thing with the last EQ2 expansions. They may as well price it at $8900.

@Xii Like paying $120 for the Ultimate Collector's Limited Edition of Q-Bert for my Atari.

Funny thing is...SOE tends to just give everyone the expansion after a couple years. I have like 5 expansion I never purchased.

Don't get me wrong, I loved me some EQ1 from 1998-2001, but people that can afford to spend $40 on an xpac for a 13 year old game could better use that money to buy a more powerful computer and play a game that came out this century. :)

@Vorender Pretty much it. Respect to EQ, but seriously, $40 for an expansion to such an archaic game. No thanks.

@Vorender Not a matter of upgrading your computer. They game is still fun and offers something different than today's MMOs. I play AoC as well and both offer me a different gaming experience I both enjoy.

Not only am I surprised that they're still making expansions for EverQuest, but... charging $40 for it??

It's 89 bucks for the collectors if you do not pre-order, otherwise it's 59.

For those of you that don't actually play EQ and moan about 39 bucks for an expansion...you need to play the game to have a clue about the value. For those that still play the game (myself among the casuals) the content added and value of new features is well worth the price.

The price includes all previous expansions as well, unlike say WoW that charges 50 bucks for an expansion that takes 2 years and has less content.
