EverQuest® II Launches Latest Expansion - Chains of Eternity
SAN DIEGO – Nov. 13, 2012 – Sony Online Entertainment, LLC (SOE) today announced the launch of EverQuest ® II: Chains of Eternity™, the ninth overall expansion of the long-running massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). With an imbalance in the realm of the afterlife, bringing both mortal and immortal realms to the edge of demise, players are asked to travel to Ethernere, the realm of the afterlife, to find out what is amiss.

“EverQuest II continues to innovate and surprise players with immersive designs and epic storylines,” said Holly Longdale, Producer, EverQuest II. “For Chains of Eternity, we created a rich story arc in which players of any play style would discover a side of Norrath that has never been explored. In essence, we have expanded EverQuest II not by land or sea… but by afterlife.”

Chains of Eternity offers all new features, including a new level cap of 95, prestige abilities for adventurers as well as tradeskillers, and Spirit Stone adornments that grow in power with the player. Two overland zones in the spirit realm are also available to explore along with new dungeons, quests and in-game items to discover.

EverQuest II: Chains of Eternity content and features include:

· The Eidolon Jungle: Every area of Norrath – over all the ages – has its own home in Ethernere. Deep in this lush jungle overrun by strange creatures players will uncover Cazic-Thule dungeons with a familiar theme of fear and evil from EverQuest.
