While your big names like
World of Warcraft and Star Wars: The Old Republic battle it out
for MMO prominence, SOE's Everquest II has been quietly plugging away
with a steady stream of updates since its 2004 launch. The latest add-on to MMO gaming's first name in lifestyle-crippling addiction is
now live: here's some images and the trailer.
Owners of the barebones EQII itself get two new
zones, the titular dragon citadel and the enchantment-blighted
Withered Lands, which as far as we can tell is a sort of magical
Chernobyl. Owners of the Destiny of Velious add-on also get a new
level-cap of 92, as well as new tradeskill quests and items, prestige
abilities and Drake mounts.
For those who've got the Age of Discovery
add-on installed, Skyshrine will also add new Dungeon Maker
adventurers and a new Poet's Palace theme, as well as new recipes,
mercenaries and tameable creatures. Everquest II: homewrecking since
2004 and still going strong!
