Everquest Celebrates Its 14th Birthday
Sony Online Entertainment is celebrating the 14th anniversary of its historic MMO Everquest with new content for the game.
The new content will include five player created missions that were designed during last year’s celebrations. Aside from those players who have completed epic weapons quests will get the chance to complete epic ornamentation quests. These quests will reward the players with ornamentation version of their epic weapons. These quests will be a permanent addition to the game.
Furthermore, the ‘Shadow of the Fear’ update will go live for the original Everquest somewhere in between the middle of April. The update will add two new zones; Plane of Shadow and Chelsith Reborn. These new zones will continue the storyline from Rain of Fear.
Besides that, the update will also include more raid quests, spells and even a new AA.
Here are some fun facts SOE released about Everquest:
There are nearly as many NPCs in EverQuest as there are people in Tampa, Florida: The total population of Norrathian NPCs is well over 344,935!
The oldest characters are more than twice the age of the oldest person to have lived: A day in EQ is 72 minutes; that said, a character that was created when the game launched on March 16, 1999, is 280 years old this year.
Lastly, during its birthday weekend from March 15th to March 17th Everquest will be holding a double XP promotion.
