Everquest: Underfoot Delayed and New Information Released

Posted Mon, Sep 21, 2009 by Martuk

The launch for Everquest's 16th expansion Everquest Underfoot has been delayed until December 15th, but SOE (Sony Online Entertainment) has released new information about the expansions lore and new Marketplace items. The new information explains some of the lore behind areas such as Brell's Rest and how the Ancient Heroes mechanic works, allowing you to transform your character to mimic a classic Everquest experience.

To ensure that we can give our players the best possible gameplay experience and the amount of content that they've come to expect, we felt it was necessary to move the launch date for EverQuest® Underfoot™ to December 15, 2009.

Participate* in all three of the Road to Underfoot events and pre-order and purchase the expansion by December 1, 2009 and you'll be one of the first to experience EverQuest Underfoot starting December 8, 2009.

*Terms and Conditions: Early access is available up to seven days prior to the commercial launch date for the expansion, which date is subject to change. *To be eligible for early access to EverQuest Underfoot, consumers must: (i) have a current, valid EverQuest subscription in good standing; (ii) have previously purchased the EverQuest base game and all previous EverQuest expansions (sold separately); (iii) participate in all three Road to Underfoot events with the same character on one account prior to 11:59pm (PST) December 1, 2009 (participation may require completing a task or quest or killing one or more NPCs); and (iv) successfully pre-order and purchase the Underfoot expansion prior to 11:59pm (PST) December 1, 2009. Players who do not satisfy all of the conditions listed above, including participating in all three Road to Underfoot events prior to 11:59pm (PST) on December 1, 2009, will not be eligible for early access to Underfoot, even if they successfully pre-order the expansion prior to December 1, 2009. The scheduled early access date for qualifying EverQuest subscribers is December 8, 2009 and the scheduled commercial release date for EverQuest Underfoot is December 15, 2009.
