Perhaps EverQuest fans were a little concerned that Daybreak might not be able to put out its yearly expansion, what with COVID and all. Rest easy, fair Norrathans, because Claws of Veeshan is coming!
The studio officially announced its 27th expansion for the MMO this week, saying that it will be taking pre-orders and putting the pack into beta next Wednesday, October 21st. As of yet, there is no stated launch date, but it’s typical for EQ franchise expansions to launch well into the fourth quarter of every year.
Claws of Veeshan will add six icy zones, more raids, new spells, AAs, more collections, and even more inventory in the form of a “dragon’s hoard.”
Daybreak laid the foundation for the upcoming story: “Velious is overwhelmed with writhing ice. Frozen undead swarm everywhere. The few survivors that remain throw aside old hatreds — for now at least — and band together to survive. It is time for the bravest heroes of Norrath to challenge the dragons of Velious and put an end to the deadly magic that has tormented the citizens of the continent.”
