Sony releases expansion pack for Everquest II

Sony Online Entertainment announced Desert of Flames and The Splitpaw Saga, the first expansion pack and second adventure pack, respectively, for EverQuest II. Scheduled for launch September 12, Desert of Flames is priced at $30 and will be showcased at the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles. The Splitpaw Saga will be available only via digital download for $8 and is scheduled for release on June 28.

In Desert of Flames, players will experience gameplay-changing features and can explore never-before-seen areas filled with new quests, monsters, and loot, Sony said. The expansion is centered around the newly discovered city of Maj'Dul. Set in an Arabian Nights theme, players can choose to battle in special new arenas either against other players or against creatures in a new style of player versus player combat.

The Splitpaw Saga is the second adventure pack for EverQuest II following The Bloodline Chronicles, released in March of this year. The Splitpaw Saga leads players through a series of event-based zones by using moveable planks, crates, and barrels. (THG)
