Sony Online Entertainment has announced that their newest expansion for EverQuest is now available. Titled Rain of Fire, this is now the 19th expansion in the longest-running MMO, and features all new content to an already vast world.
Continuing the storyline from House of Thule and Veil of Alaris, players have released the stolen power of Fear. This power is returning to Norrath, falling from the sky in the form of crystalline shards. Who will gain control of the essence of fear and bring balance across Norrath? It’s up to the players as they travel across the world to gather these shards, battle new and familiar foes and reclaim the power of fear.
The new Rain of Fear expansion raises the game’s level cap to 100, adds new zones, raids, missions, quests, spells, items, and new tradeskill recipes. It also introduces a new Slayer System, Aggro Meter, and Collection System, along with an improved brokering system that enables offline selling.
Thom Terrazas, Producer on EverQuest has said that in "its 14th year of continuous development, the EverQuest team continues to release high-quality, immersive content for EverQuest," so probably expect more expansions full of content as the still popular MMO continues to grow.
