“We enjoy making sure that EverQuest II is chock-full of new content all the time,” said Sr. Producer Scott Hartsman. “In addition to our regular live updates and expansion packs, adventure packs like The Splitpaw Saga let us bring story-rich content to lots of players for a really low price. We also have a lot of fun creating the in-game events, in connection with adventure packs, that lead up to the release of the full content.”
By pre-ordering The Splitpaw Saga, players will gain access to a special instanced zone and earn rewards before the adventure begins. At launch, players will explore the collapsed caverns and twisted tunnels of Sundered Splitpaw.

A ferocious clan of cannibalistic gnolls will stand in the way as players seek to destroy the greatest threat yet in Norrath's history of late. New and veteran players alike can experience the adventure meeting fresh challenges as they progress and try again as the encounters scale dynamically to match the player’s level.
