As Macworld UK exclusively revealed in May 2003, Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) yesterday announced the release of its much-anticipated EverQuest for Mac game.

Sadly, however, the release is only available to US Mac users at present.

The Mac version of the massively multiplayer online adventure game offers the basic title, plus four more titles released as expansion packs for the PC release. These include The Ruins of Kunark, The Scars of Velious, The Shadows of Luclin and The Planes of Power.

EverQuest launched in 1999 and has sold over two million copies to Windows users. Sony calls it "the largest online 3D fantasy world ever created". During peak moments of gaming activity up to 118,000 players have explored EverQuest simultaneously.
