The folks at Sony Online Entertainment
passed us word that a brand-new expansion to their fantasy-themed TCG Legends of Norrath
is coming very soon. Called simply Ethernauts
, it will be the fifth expansion to the game since the game launched at the end of summer last year. It follows close on the heels of the Oathbreaker expansion
, which came out in June of this year. While there are a lot of similarities with past expansions (280 new cards, 20 new loot cards, etc.) Ethernauts
looks to be adding a few new bits of flavour to the pot.
Most intriguing is its deep tie-in to the upcoming Shadow Odyssey
expansion to EverQuest 2
. That connection was hinted at in our interview with LoN developers Kyle Heuer and Tom Lischke
in June of this year. Players will take on the roles of ancient heroes, fighting against the darkness of The Void in the far distant past of Norrath. New gameplay elements will also be introduced, with all-new options for starter decks and deck building. We have the full release formatted below the cut, if you're interested. Look to this space in the near future for our typical art previews and promo art from the new expansion.
