EverQuest II confirms new expansion this year, announces Against the Elements prelude event

    
10
Today, the folks at Daybreak Games announced the commencement of a new event in EverQuest II, Against the Elements. But it’s not just any event — it’s an expansion prelude event, confirming that the venerable MMO will indeed be receiving a new expansion this year, which should be welcome news following the game’s conspicuous absence in DBG’s recent announcements. Although we still don’t know anything about the expansion itself, the mere fact that it exists and will be releasing in November of this year should be enough to get any EQ2 player’s blood pumping.

The event itself finds Norrath being overrun by rampaging elementals, wreaking havoc across the land. It’s up to players to join forces with Freeport’s Academy of Arcane Science and Qeynos’s Concordium to help investigate the outbreak of elemental rage, discover its source, and put an end to the madness before things go completely sideways. There’s plenty of incentive for players to lend aid, as those who participate in the event will acquire elemental storm shreds which can be exchanged for any of the 41 new items added to the Academy of Arcane Science and Concordium vendors. For the full details, check out the announcement on the game’s official site.

I just installed eq2 a couple of days ago I guess this was a good time to pick it up

I’m playing it sporadically. It fills a oldschool void for me that WoW isn’t filling anymore.

My problem is that…man, this game is convoluted. My god. So much crap that i shouldn’t need. My actionbars are filled with stuff that i don’t even know how to rotate.

I don’t care much for endgame, just want to experience Norrath.

Yeah, it’s quite a difference from current WoW where the pets in the pet battles have more skills than the player classes do. :P

Sorry, done with EQ2 since last year, never to return. Game is broken by massive power creep.

Darn, tempted to download and install again just to check out it. (twitch)

p.s: Did you all change the font size or the font type within the last few days Matt? The font feels harder to read, slightly smaller. (shrugs)

I haven’t noticed any change in the font, although this site is the slowest to load of all the sites I frequent (and has been for a while). That’s on a desktop PC using Chrome, you may be referring to the mobile version which I tend not to bother with for this site.

Yeah might be the recent Chrome update. I’m only noting it on this website so far and not with any of the sites I tend to read.
