EverQuest II moving to 64-bit servers in July, celebrating Bristlebane Day this week

blank

EverQuest II is the latest title that begins the process of moving to 64-bit servers and clients and moving away from legacy systems. The change, expected to be due in July, means support for 32-bit systems will end, but performance should be more stable and faster as the game continues to grow.

The original EverQuest has already made the move, so it doesn’t really come as a surprise EQII. Beta testing on the 64-bit servers begins tomorrow, March 29th. Anyone wanting to participate in the beta must of course have a 64-bit Windows system, but would like to get as much feedback as possible to ensure everything is running smoothly and stably. There’s no end date for the beta yet, because when the 64-bit servers go live it means the end of 32-bit support for that day, so they’re giving everyone who might be affected a chance to prepare.

Although they have set July as their target for the 64-bit launch, Darkpaw Games hasn’t announced a firm date yet as the change is final, but there is some flexibility to the process. Here you can find out everything about the system requirements and beta information.

In the meantime, EverQuest II is in celebration mode with the arrival of Bristlebane Day. It’s the celebration of mischief and pranks, and this year’s event comes with new items and a new mount for you to grab while the celebrations continue. This Friday, April 1st is The Highest of High Silly Days and there will be additional quests and content in Enchanted Lands.

Of course, if you’re not a fan of pranks and silliness, all of the regular content is available in Norrath. But for those who want to treat themselves, the event runs until April 6 at 11:59 am PDT.
