Sony Online Entertainment has announced the upcoming expansions for the online role-playing games EverQuest and EverQuest II. EverQuest Seeds of Destruction is scheduled to be available on Oct.21, and EverQuest II The Shadow Odyssey is scheduled to be available on Nov.18.
EverQuest II The Shadow Odyssey is the fifth expansion for the EQII franchise and follows the Rise of KunarkT expansion. New players and veterans alike will journey through a substantial amount of content with more than 20 new zones, including the Moors of Ykesha, a massive outdoor zone once known as Innothule Swamp, and the legendary dungeon Guk. Throughout the summer months, players were treated to prelude events, such as the Void Storms, that gave them a glimpse into the expansion lore and content from The Shadow Odyssey, building the anticipation leading up to the launch.
EverQuest is rapidly approaching its 10th anniversary, and Seeds of Destruction is the 15th expansion for the online game. For the first time ever, players will have the ability to hire non-player characters (NPCs) to aid them in their heroic endeavors in Seeds of Destruction. These mercenaries will be valuable player assets as they thwart the efforts of Discordís Dark God. This expansion also includes a level cap increase to 85, new dynamic high-level raid content, new spells and new alternate advancement abilities.
