Sony Online Entertainment
has taken the wraps off EverQuest II's
ninth expansion this afternoon. Chains of Eternity
will release in November, and it will pile even more content on top of one of the MMO genre's most content-rich
games. All the new stuff takes place in EQII's
version of the afterlife, or as it's known in Norrath: Ethernere.
Adventuring and tradeskill level caps will tick up to 95, new prestige abilities are coming, and of course there are plenty of new quests on the way as well. Producer Holly "Windstalker
" Longdale also hints at "another event that we're keeping under wraps." She says it, whatever it is, will debut around the same time as the expansion.
