EverQuest II’s GU 114, Showdown at Diaku Corral, mixes westerns with fantasy next week

Daybreak’s Darkpaw Games has some fun planned for EverQuest II players during quarantine: It’s releasing GU 114 Showdown at Diaku Corral next week, complete with amusing cowboy theme.

“On April 14, 2020, Norrathian Cowpokes are invited to a tense standoff in the Showdown at Diaku Corral. We’ve got a few new adventures for those of you with a cool hand, a steady eye, and a quick trigger finger to explore. When Showdown at Diaku Corral releases on April 14 players will experience three new dungeons of content and quests! Wracklands: Diaku Corral [Solo], Wracklands: Diaku Corral [Heroic], and Wracklands: Showdown at High Noon [Challenge] with challenge having a completely different set of bosses from the first two zones.

“GU 114 will also be the launch of Overseer Season 2. It’s time for the Overseer system to head into Desert of Flames and start exploring those stories, which means more quests and new agents to discover. It will also introduce the Overseer leveling system, which will open up new rewards at higher levels. Desert of Flames content, for example, will open at Overseer level 11.”

The studio is also promising a gift bag for players dubbed the “EverQuest II Great Escape Crate”; it’ll include a freebie mount, familiar, bag, 10 unattuners, and some sort of mystery present. Good show, Daybreak.

In other EverQuest II news, the game is currently beset by the Beast’r Eggstravaganza Hunt, which includes a new questline and buyable goodies.┬áThere’s also a double experience event┬árunning all weekend, plus a new episode of the the studio’s podcast.
