It's a great day to be an EverQuest fan, as Sony Online Entertainment has also announced EverQuest II: Chains of Eternity, the 9th expansion pack to the popular fantasy MMORPG sequel. EverQuest will still have it beat with a level cap of 100, but 95 certainly isn't anything to sneeze at:
Death is rampant across Norrath. Citizens are suddenly falling dead as their spirits are torn from their bodies. No one on Norrath seems to understand why the souls are being pulled from the mortal plane, but all signs point to a massive disturbance within Ethernere, the realm of the dead. The heroes of the world must travel to Ethernere to find the cause of the unbalance in the Grey Wastes, and discover what has become of its caretaker – the mysterious being known as Drinal. If the heroes can return balance to Ethernere, the siphoning of souls may be halted. Should they fail, both the living and the dead will suffer a dismal fate.
