new EverQuest content is in the works, Sony Online Entertainment often invites
members from the games media to attend virtual tours. After logging into
pre-made accounts, the press gets the chance to do some in-game sightseeing
with first-hand looks at new zones and features planned for upcoming updates
and expansions before they set off to write their previews.
GamesRadar is very excited to be able to share some exclusive footage from SOE’s
most recent virtual tour for the upcoming Age of Discovery expansion for
EverQuest II. It’s a first for this site and we think this video is worth more
than a thousand word preview for EQ players. So sit back, relax, and join associate
producer Emily Taylor for a personal tour through the Age of Discovery beta.
You’ll see the new beastlord class, changes to the city of Freeport, and details
on the new mercenaries system. You’ll also get a detailed look at the new
Dungeon Maker feature, which lets players craft and design their very own
dungeons for other adventurers!
