Take a look at EverQuest II’s City of Maldura zone preview

Straight outta wherever.

Fantasy cities manage to have far more intense problems than real-world cities. Sure, there are plenty of real-world cities with crime problems, but how many of those cities have had to seal off entire portions of the city and let the criminals run rampant? Other than Detroit, that is. The point here is that the underground city Maldura has done exactly that in EverQuest II, and it’ll be up to players to help the residents get things back under control.

Of course, Maldura’s problems are less “criminal” and more “uncontrollable monstrosities known as the Immolated,” but that’s splitting hairs. The latest zone preview on the official site goes into more detail about the lore and the history players will encounter as they explore Maldura, while further development statements have clarified that the the city will have non-combat areas for players to explore as well. It’s just not an entirely combat-free city with its whole magical atrocity problem. You understand.

Much, much better examples of cities that have had to seal off entire portions of the city and let the criminals run rampant would be Washington D.C.and New York City (the sections around Congress and Wall St. respectively) Poor Detroit is small potatoes compared to those 2.

Elikal Ialborcales ItsatrapLOL So weird that they are reporting on EQ2 when it is launching a new expansion and just launched a Time Locked Expansion. Oh wait, this is a MMO news site, that isn’t weird at all.

Elikal Ialborcales ItsatrapLOL What isn’t weird is not seeing anything about it, in a posting about a different game. Besides what else could daybreak possible do other than come to your house and spit in your face to make it clear you’re just a paycheck to them….yet people are still excited about hearing anything about this next game they’ll buy from them.

looks like your standard Warhammer inspired Dwarven city, that is to say it looks good.
