In the summer producer's letter, EverQuest II's Jenn Chan announced that the next update to the venerable MMORPG, Toil and Trouble, would be coming next week on August 10th. Details themselves were scant, but Chan hinted that there would be "something for everyone" in the upcoming update.
Announced over a month ago, the two special progression servers for EverQuest launch today, bringing the classic EQ experience - with a few twists - to subscribers.
J is having some issues with burn out. Playing through EverQuest 2 right now as he gets his way up to the current content, doing it solo has become a slog. Is this something you feel in an MMO as well, especially when the social parts of the MMO are nonexistent for large stretches?
EverQuest pioneered the 3D massively multiplayer online roleplaying game. For many people, it would forever change how we would interact with games and people online. Even after 22 years players are flocking towards the venerable world of Norrath to discover long lost friends and adventures. Michael was surprised at how much he felt the draw to get back into the MMO recently.
For the majority of his twenties, Jonathan was a hardcore EverQuest player. When EverQuest II launched, J eagerly jumped back into Norrath, and while it hooked him for a while, he inevitably went back to the OG EQ. Now, in 2021, Jonathan has returned to Norrath - how does this experience hold up years later? Check out the first installment of the Norrathian Stride, a new column about EverQuest II.
EverQuest II has just recently launched their 17th expansion entitled Reign of Shadows. We had the chance to sit down with Jenn Chan, the head of Darkpaw Games to ask some questions about the long awaited return of the Vah Shir race to the world of Norrath!
EverQuest II's Reign of Shadows expansion is live, and it comes with a welcome addition of a new playable race, the Vah Shir. The expansion not just introduces a new playable race, but has a ton of new features as well, including 10 new Reign of Shadows prestige abilities, an increased Maximum Guild Level, a new Adventure and more.
In a brace of letters released to the EverQuest communities, new Darkpaw Studios head Jennifer Chan addressed the community. This comes almost a week after it was announced former head of studio Holly Longdale was stepping down from her role.
In a post on the EverQuest website today, the franchise's executive producer Holly "Windstalker" Longdale has stepped down from her role with the franchise. Technical Director Jennifer Chan will be stepping into the role, having worked alongside Longdale for the past five years, according to the post.
