Sony Online Entertainment has announced the forthcoming release of new expansions for hit MMORPG EverQuest and its sequel, EverQuest II.
The Prophecy of Ro expansion, which is for the original game, will feature more than 30 new missions, 25 original characters, seven zones and six small instances. Plus it will enable you to use magic powers to influence the rules of the game, and change the way it's played.
The expansion will be out in the US this February in both real and Internet shops along with EverQuest II: Kingdom of Sky, a new add-on with all sorts of exciting features. You can expect a brand new structured skill and ability development system, with level caps raised to 70 for adventurers and artisans and 50 for guilds.
Other goodies will include 10 new zones, 25 new monsters and all manner of new items. The storyline is all about the Overrealm, a collection of mysterious islands which float around overhead, and you'll need to watch out for some old enemies who make an unwelcome return to Norrath.
Kingdom of Sky will also bring player vs. player combat to EverQuest II for the first time. But if you don't want to shell out for the expansion pack, don't worry - a free PvP patch will also be released next month.
