PC MMO EverQuest II may be more than ten years old, but that doesn't mean developer Sony Online Entertainment Daybreak Games is going to stop supporting it anytime soon. Case in point: the developer on Tuesday released a new duck mount for the game.

"Ducks are majestic creatures, they look awesome, and they have all sorts of variety," Daybreak wrote in its forums back in February when the process of bringing duck mounts to EverQuest II began. Check out the funny video below to learn more about what it took to bring ducks to the game.

The flying creatures are now available to buy in EverQuest II, but only for a limited time. You can buy a mallard mount called The Quacken right now for 1950 Station Cash (about $20). They'll be removed from sale on May 19, so if you're interested, you may want to act quickly.

Duck mounts in EverQuest II feature ground animations similar to the existing terrorbird mounts, and the wings work quite the same way as the pegasus-like mounts.

People are already flocking to the new duck mounts, as the image below posted in the EverQuest II forums demonstrates.
