It is that time of year… actually, we’re a little past that time by my watch… but either way, the EverQuest team found the time to announce the next expansion, the 27th for the game, Claws of Veeshan.
The brief producer’s letter that carried the announcement indicated that the expansion would contain the following:
- 6 Expansion Zones – Follow the chilling trail of ice into the lands dominated by the dragons of Velious. Find the source of the mysterious and restless ice and put an end to the dangers that have enveloped the entire continent.
- New Raids, Quests, and Missions
- New Spells, Combat Abilities, and AAs
- New Collections
- Dragon’s Hoard – A dragon’s hoard for those that have collected so many items, it is nigh impossible to contain. This is an additional space to hold all those items you may need once more but do not need now.
Most of those are pretty much core to any EverQuest (or EverQuest II) expansion. Interesting that they are going with Velious as the setting for two expansions running.
Beta and Preorder for Claws of Veeshan will start on October 21, 2020. This gives you a little bit more time to buy the last expansion, Torment of Velious, if you want any of the extras that came with that expansion. It is 25% off… plus a 10% discount for all access members… until October 20th, at which point it will disappear from the store, replaced by the new expansion.
The producer’s letter also covers some technical updates they have made to improve server stability.
Now we’re just waiting for the other shoe to drop, the announcement of the next EverQuest II expansion.
