EverQuest II

  • Good News Everyone! For those of you who have been dying to beat the peanuts out of the good/ evil side you now have your chance. SOE has a new development update explaining the PVP system that is coming with their new expansion Kingdom of Sky.

    As you may already know, Player-versus-Player combat is coming to EverQuest II! It is currently planned to launch simultaneously with Kingdom of Sky, the second EQII expansion. PvP will take place on new PvP-ruleset servers named after famous dragons in Norrath. Everyone will have the opportunity to start fresh on a PvP server and be a part of the escalated conflict between Freeport and Qeynos.

    Hmm.. now I'm pondering whether or not I should restart my account and suck at PVP in two games at once.

  • Smed has a new blog available for your viewing pleasure.

    John Smedley ("Smed"), president of Sony Online Entertainment, kicks off the new SOE company blog with his thoughts on the PC gaming industry as a whole, as well as PC Gamer's recent decision to stop accepting ads from unsanctioned online game auction sites. The blog will feature insight and commentary on the video game industry from a more personal perspective from multiple SOE contributors.

    You can read the blog, and subscribe to it for updates, at blog.station.sony.com

    Oh sweet IRONY! The latest and greatest is Smedley praising PC Gamer for their move to take secondary market sales ads off of the mag. Why go through IGE when you can just spend your money at the Station Exchange?

  • Think all MMO gamers demographically exist somewhere between college and kids?
    You might be surprised, especially since the word veteran in "veteran gamer" doesn't usually refer to the 50-plus set! TTH's own Patrick "Troon" Connoy puts hands to keyboard to describe his introduction to and enjoyment of EverQuest 2. That is, as a proud member of a little-known (but steadily growing) gaming demographic!

    MMO games are lots of fun, they’re entertaining and addictive, no matter what your age level is! In fact, SOE and the other publishers are probably missing out on a very large hidden market opportunity by not directly targeting us senior, or, in my case, “almost” senior citizens. We are a “massively” large group, with improvements in healthcare, growing larger in size every day. The AARP boasts 35 million paying members, more than the population of Australia or Canada. After retirement, we have more time on our hands than we know what to do with. We are always looking for ways to keep our minds sharp and trying to figure out these new fangled computers. And, best of all, all of our friends are dying off, so we need the social interaction that MMOG’s provide!!

    Though we're still working on the large print edition, click here to check out the rest of this very engaging, tongue-in-cheek article!

  • Time to start camping the emails again. SOE has announced that they've opened Beta Registration for their upcoming expansion Kingdom of Sky

    We are pleased to announce that registration for the Kingdom of Sky and PvP beta tests is now open! This is your chance to help us test the second EverQuest II expansion pack, as well as the highly anticipated addition of Player-versus-Player combat in EQII.

    High above the mightiest peaks of Norrath a secret world exists. This Overrealm, made up of enormous islands of land suspended in the air, is home to aviaks and creatures never-before seen, but it is the splintered and warring dragons who rule it.

    This expansion is intended for characters level 55 and higher, although we will be accepting some lower-level characters into beta to help test our new player-versus-player ruleset. If you only wish to participate in the PvP beta, please use this registration system as well--Registering for the KoS beta will automatically enroll you in the PvP beta test.

    You can register Here Make sure you're signed into your station account when you do it.

  • It looks like Sony is previewing EQ2 - Kingdom of Sky at CES this week. Gamespot has the scoop.

    In story terms, Kingdom of Sky will focus on the warriors' of Norrath's battle against the residents of the Overrealm, a mystical and previously undiscovered territory consisting of islands floating high above the land. Players will begin to see in-game clues, such as NPC dialogue, indicating that those reaching a high enough level will be able to erect "teleportation spires" that they can then use to travel to the Overrealm and battle the creatures dwelling there, who intend to enslave and conquer Norrath.

    Some of the new beings you'll find in the Overrealm include humanoid races resembling eagles and vultures, as well as a number of rather fearsome dragon bosses. We got to see one particularly fearsome bone dragon dungeon boss that ought to provide some nice loot for fearless adventurers. The islands and architecture of the Overrealm have a classical, Middle Eastern-influenced look to them, as well.

    Good to see the Warriors getting some lovin.

  • Sony has put up four new Screenshots of it's upcoming expansion Kingdom of Sky. They've also given us a release date. February 21, 2006 is the big day!

    Now like most of you old EQ players out there, I'm sure that this new expansion reminds you greately of the Plane of Sky. And if you were in Ellar Dobluth on The Rathe server with me in the early days, this also reminds you of Eero getting his butt kicked by the short kid after mouthing off to him. Good times... good times..

"For the seasoned EQII player, Kingdom of Sky increases the amount of high level content in a world filled with intrigue and the potential destruction of Norrath by the evil dragon lords. The second expansion pack brings the excitement of dragon battles and is timed to coincide with the newly-added Player vs. Player (PvP) action."

  • GamerGod wraps up it's three part interview with Everquest 2 Community Manager BlackGuard.

    Nine: Being part of the creative team involved with EQ2, would you say you have more of an advantage than the average player has in terms of knowing plot details for storylines, NPC’s for quest turn ins, and general information that the average consumer has to find out on their own?

    I have the ability to take advantage of the information available to me, but that usually ruins the fun. To be honest, if I get stuck on a quest, I do the same thing that everyone else does (ask in guild chat, bug people in the "LFG" channel on our server that nobody looks for a group in, or hit up a website with spoilers).

    In terms of lore and plotlines, I probably do know a little more than the average player. That may change in the future as we start releasing more and more lore as weekly features. EverQuest II has a heck of a lot of lore to it, and we want people to know more about it because the stories are part of the heart of the game.
