  • EverQuest II's Senior Producer Scott Hartsman talks about Echoes of Faydwer

    MMORPG.com posted this interview Friday with Scott Hartsman in their continuing series of interviews.

    MMORPG.com: An aspect of the expansion that has players excited are the Deity granted spells and skills. Can you tell us more about them? Is this just a one time quest or more of a developing journey?

    Scott Hartsman: Choosing a deity that matches your character's beliefs is a journey that you begin to embark upon through different series of quests for each deity.

    Once you've chosen a deity to worship and earn their favor by taking on certain quests and making offerings you're able to tap into certain aspects of their power, their Blessings and Miracles. You can have one of each at any given time. You gain them by praying at your deity's altar and choosing to spend some of your earned Favor.

  • Bursting at the seams with new content, this expansion will keep real life at bay

    GamesRadar.com has posted their hands on preview of the upcoming expansion for EverQuest II, Echoes of Faydwer.

    We recently got some hands on time with the beta version of Echoes of Faydwer and it looks like EverQuest II fans will have a good reason to put real life on hold and order some pizza as it’s jam packed with more content than any other expansion released for the granddaddy of MMORPGs. Unlike previous expansions which focused on new content for particular level ranges, Echoes of Faydwer will include new questing grounds for all levels with plenty of end-game bosses for raiders to take down.

  • Ahoy Ye Matey! An Interview with Former Community Manager Blackguard

    With one of our developers and our Community Relations Manager off grazing greener pastures, the EverQuest II community has felt the tug of loss over this last month. Ryan "Blackguard" Shwayder has left big shoes to fill for sure, but even as we say goodbye to our beloved CM as he heads back to Colorado to start on new, real-life adventures, we want to never forget that before Blackguard was the CM, he was a gamer. Please sit down and take a moment with Savanja and Blackguard as they chit chat about gaming, EQII, and blogging!

    No single event really inspired me to get into gaming as a career that I can recall. I've really just loved playing video games for my entire life, and started reading various books on game design and development in high school. I made a bunch of mods for various games as a hobby and ran fansites, which got me close to several developers. They all seemed to enjoy their jobs and I liked pretty much all of the devs I met, and the opportunity to work on EQII was timed well for me (and it was the right game) so I went ahead and took it. I've pretty much wanted to make games for as long as I can remember.

  • EverQuest II: Echoes of Faydwer Updated Impressions

    Gamespot has posted an updated preview of the upcoming expansion to EQII. Keep reading to see what they think...

    One of the advantages of massively multiplayer online role-playing games that let you play in persistent virtual worlds with thousands of other players is that they can evolve and grow over time. The world of EverQuest II will experience another growth spurt with the release of the upcoming third expansion, EverQuest II: Echoes of Faydwer. With Echoes of Faydwer, the designers at Sony Online Entertainment continue to tie together the worlds of EverQuest II and the original EverQuest. Faydwer was an area in the original game, and the traditional home of the elves, dwarves, and gnomes is back and better than before.

  • Spiffy or Iffy?

    GameSpy took a look at the upcoming expansion to Everquest II, Echoes of Faydwer. Keep reading to find out if they liked what is to come...

    Two retail expansions to EverQuest II have been released to date, but depending on who you ask, the upcoming Echoes of Faydwer may be the first that's truly deserving of the name. Due out this November, Echoes looks to expand the game in many meaningful ways, adding not only a landmass of significant size, but a new playable race, and some apparently far-reaching game-wide changes. We recently caught up with SOE to get an idea of what we can expect.
