EverQuest Producer Holly Longdale is officially sounding the party horn for the start of the game’s 17th anniversary festivities. In a new producer’s letter, Longdale rattles off a list of upcoming events, some of which start this month.
Wednesday, March 16th marks EverQuest’s 17th birthday, and on that date the game will be hosting a drunken Gnome race at 6:00 p.m. EST. This is for everyone, but to participate you’ll need to create a new Gnome in Ak’Anon. Raiders can also tackle a huge Legacy of Ykesha dungeon on that date as well.
Longdale hinted at more goodness to come, including the game’s next expansion: “Heading into summer, we have some big and fun plans in the works. We are still finalizing the details before we make any grand statements — and there should be a grand statement as we inch closer. The expansion for this year is well under way and looking incredible on the art front as well as design.”
