Fall is always the best time of the year for the EverQuest franchise – it’s expansion season. Over in classic EverQuest, pre-orders for The Burning Lands expansion have now gone live, and don’t be thinking it’ll be a cheap buy just because the game is nearly 20 years old. While the standard edition is $34.99, the higher-tier packages run all the way up to $139.99 and include gobs of extra mounts, consumables, teleports, and minipets.
Notably, the box also includes all of the previous expansion content too, so consider the latest expansion a catch-up too. The real deal launches December 11th.
EverQuest's 25th expansion, The Burning Lands, is now available for pre-order! When war breaks out between the djinn and the efreeti, you'll have to step in to help put an end to this elemental conflict. 🔥🌫️🔥🌫️

Meanwhile, EverQuest II is continuing previews of its own Chaos Descending, which is due to launch on November 13th. So far, Daybreak has showed off the Planes of Knowledge and Fire; this week, it’s teasing the Plane of Earth.
“The Plane of Earth is ruled over by a council of beings known as the Rathe. Their appearances are nearly identical, with bark-like flesh and robes of living foliage. They are the consciousness and pure embodiment of the primal element. The plane itself is one living entity, comprised of soil and plants, and teeming with life that are extensions of it, consisting mostly of powerful earth elementals and sentient flora. Take care, for what may sound idyllic, the Plane of Earth is no walk in the park! Whether met with teeth, vine, or stone, invaders of this celestial realm have met a varied, but equally mortal end.”
The Plane of Earth is one living entity, comprised of soil and plants, and teeming with life. The Rathe council embodies this primal element in full. Do you dare face the Rathe? 🍃
