Greetings citizens of Norrath! 

Fall is on the doorstep! What does that mean? Expansion news, of course! 

We have some epic adventures in store this year as we delve into undiscovered areas of a familiar continent in our thirteenth expansion, EverQuest II: Kunark Ascending! Quite a bit of time has passed since we have explored Kunark’s secrets and there are some great stories to be told and adventures to be had. Danger awaits you in the Crypt of Dalnir, Kaesora, Warslik’s Wood and more! 

Here’s a small peek of one of the new NPCs that will be in this expansion! 

Hobgoblin NPC

The launch of EverQuest II: Kunark Ascending is scheduled for November. We’ll have a lot more to share with you regarding EverQuest II: Kunark Ascending in October when we start talking about expansion features, open up pre-orders, and make beta available. 

In addition to working on the expansion all year, launching Game Updates 100 and 101, Progression Servers, and event server updates, the team has also put together a beta for some new PvP Battlegrounds content that you’ll see in early September. More news coming next week on Battlegrounds! 

And, to take the leap into the leaves of fall, we are running a series of promotions from September through to the expansion launch: 

  • This weekend, members get 40% off in-store purchases from September 1st 12PM PDT through September 6th 12PM PDT. At the same time we’ll be serving up Double XP for EVERYONE! 
  • EverQuest II: Terrors of Thalumbra will also be on sale at 50% off from September 1st 12PM PDT through October 5th 12PM PDT.  Note that the option to purchase the Collector’s or Premium Edition of EverQuest II: Terrors of Thalumbra that comes with unique bonus items won’t be available after pre-orders for EverQuest II: Kunark Ascending begins in October. 
  • To help you get your characters prepared for our next expansion, we are going to run another weeks-long “Gear Up, Level Up” event this year. There will be bonuses each week in October through to expansion launch, like adventure, AA, tradeskill XP bonuses, status boosts, and more!


There is a lot to come in the coming weeks, so stay tuned! We are grateful to each and every one of our players and thank you for your support!
