SOE Previews New Halas Housing for EverQuest 2

Posted Wed, Apr 14, 2010 by Martuk

The popular barbarian homeland of Halas is returning to EverQuest 2 and this week Sony Online Entertainment is offering a preview of Halas with a look at new Halas housing. Andres Rodriguez, the artist responsible for designing the new housing, joined the team to answer a few questions about the upcoming content and what sort of inspiration went into creating the new housing area in Halas.

We were trying to give the housing in New Halas a very warm and inviting feel to contrast with the cold climate of the region. To do this, we decided to use a lot of wood and barbarian elements in the design of the houses. So the houses have a slight cabin feel to it with subtle barbarian elements and trims in it, to let the players use this space in any way they want. I’m always excited to see what players create within their homes!


This announcement is so full of win we could hardly wait to tell you about it. Today EQHammer announced its User-generated Content System. In the spirit of EverQuest Next Landmark, where players are the superstars creating cool things, we’ve decided to give you - the players, the dreamers of dreams and the makers of guides - a platform.
