On February 22nd, 2011, the creators of
EverQuest II, released the game's
seventh expansion, Destiny of Velious. In a genre that sees more flops
than wins these days, and during a time that marks a disturbing trend of major titles going free-to-play before the
dust even settles the pretty release packages, EQ2 is still going strong. Being able to claim such a feat
is more than just an accomplishment in this market, it is a full fledged badge of established
game honor that very few get to claim.
The Scars of Velious was one of the most popular expansions for the original
EverQuest so the EQ2 team had a lot to live up to when it came to delivering
these beloved zones and characters to the world of Norrath once again.
With stiff competition this gaming season and plenty of player of nostalgia to
live up to, did SOE manage to hit the mark in this veteran game? Patched,
locked, and loaded I hopped into game to see what DoV has to offer.
