GameSpy has put together a preview of SOE's new EverQuest II
expansion, Echoes of Faydwer
. Scheduled for a November launch, Echoes
is the third proper EQII
expansion following Desert of Flames
and Kindgom of Sky
Perhaps hoping to court new players who may only be familiar with the PS2's Champions of Norrath
series (or to convert stalwarts of the original EQ
), SOE returns the action to the popular setting of Faydwer. The Faydark zone will actually be a starting point for a new pixie race, and you'll have the opportunity to pray at the altars of classic deities such as Mithaniel Marr and Innoruuk to earn miracle items that will aid you in your quests.
While you're on your knees, pray you have enough time to actually play Echoes
with the deluge of new games and console launches arriving this holiday season.
