Dawn began off being a bit coy by announcing on Thursday that pre-expansion occasions had began and calling on adventurers to struggle an onslaught of raging elementals with out ever mentioning the precise enlargement.
Nevertheless, they might solely keep mum for a day it appears, as yesterday they adopted up with a short Producer’s Letter asserting the upcoming enlargement Chaos Descending.
Particulars concerning the enlargement are fairly scarce. We all know the title, that it’ll keep on from final yr’s Planes of Prophecy enlargement in exploring the planar realms of Norrath, that you simply’ll encounter E’ci the Wintery guardian (as a result of half of the names in authentic EverQuest had been simply one thing spelled backwards), and that it’ll launch in November.
Past that… properly… I suppose we are able to guess about zones and raids and such. There will definitely be three flavors of the enlargement, regular, collector’s, and premium, if the previous is any information. However we have no idea if they’ll elevate the extent cap or not. There’s some thriller in that I assume.
the Producer’s Letter has just a few different objects to comply with on the enlargement announcement.
Final yr’s Planes of Prophecy enlargement is presently half value and can stay so till October 1, 2018 if you wish to catch up.
The Days of Summer time occasion continues to be going, having a great 4 weeks left to run, which can put it into autumn for all sensible definitions of the season within the northern hemisphere.
Lastly, there will probably be a “gear up, stage up” occasion beginning on September 24th that can assist you prepare for the upcoming enlargement.
To not be down on this, but it surely feels like the standard enlargement plans full with the unpredictable announcement cycle. I count on we ought to be listening to one thing quickly for EverQuest as properly. Nonetheless, any sport nonetheless getting expansions after fourteen years (or nineteen within the case of EQ) can’t be doing that dangerous.
We’ll see if the rumors from May find yourself coming true. A pair have already (Simply Survive is down and PlanetSide 2 is getting a brand new map) however I haven’t seen something indicating that these are the final expansions for the present Norrath franchise but.
