EverQuest celebrates its 20th expansion
One of the longest standing MMOs, the original EverQuest launched its 20th expansion today; Call of the Forsaken. EverQuest has come a long way since its release in 1999, and has no plans of slowing down, releasing the Shadow of Fear and Heart of Fear sub-expansions this year already.
Call of the Forsaken delves into the once peaceful plains of West Karana, where chaos has erupted and Lady Lendiniara, a powerful dragon, has stumbled, lost, into our realm, and needs to be returned. The tears between times and worlds have drawn out some old friends too. SOE have so far listed; Zebuxoruk, King Naythox Thex, Queen Cristanos Thex, Lendiniara the Keeper and Kyle Bayle as EQ veterans that are back on the scene for the 20th installment, celebrating some of the classic adventures of yore.
Tonnes of new features are being added to the MMORPG in this expansion including new spells, new recipes, new artifacts, new explorable zones, new raids...new, new, new! Advancements, Gear and Adventures have all received tweaks too; allowing you more customizable loadouts and more variety in existing missions.
2 Editions of Call of the Forsaken are available, each with additional bonuses. The Standard Edition features a 32-slot Rucksack, a Gargoyle statue for your yard, a Tirun house pet and some decorations. The Collector's Edition will grant you all the same perks, plus an additional 36-slot Satchel, an Ethernere Wurm Mount, a Bixie Mercenary and a Bixie Honeycomb House/Hive.
The expansion is available now; priced $39.99 for the Standard Edition, and $89.99 for the Collector's Edition.
