Sony Online Entertainment has announced a newly relaunched, adding casual games from PopCap and more, free trials of various SOE MMOs like Everquest, and full free versions of popular Station Pass titles to the portal, as well as revamped community sections.

As part of the relaunch, a number of hit casual games have been added to the service, including many from PopCap, such as Bejeweled 2, Diner Dash, Bookworm and arcade ports like Q-Bert.

The site also now features a number of free trials to many of SOE's MMOs, including a 10-level limited trial of Everquest, and two different 7-day trials of Everquest II, allowing curious players access to the newest playable race, and a 14-day trial of its Star Wars Galaxies.

Also included in the new site are full versions of SOE's Station Pass games, allowing free play of its three casual, online action-based strategy games Tanarus, Cosmic Rift Online and Infantry Online.

Siad SOE senior VP of global sales and marketing Torrie Dorrell, "As SOE continues to grow its business and acquire a wider variety of titles, it was only appropriate that the website be redesigned to offer a more user-friendly and immersive experience to our diverse player base. Players from around the world will be able to obtain news and information surrounding upcoming and live games, visit community sites, download a casual game or two and even check out SOE's latest offerings for the PlayStation Store."
