Speaking of new worlds, if you've never jumped on board the EverQuest bandwagon, you can pick up the just released EverQuest: The Anniversary Edition for only $19.99. It contains every expansion ever made for EverQuest, which at last count was thirteen. That's a lot of adventuring, folks. Hard to believe it's been around for eight years now.
EverQuest II also gets some love in the form of a huge new expansion called The Rise of Kunark, which comes out in November. It adds a new playable race, weapons, armor, zones, deities, now level cap at 80, and even a new mount ... a rhinoceros. We're not sure about you, but tooling around on a rampaging rhino sounds like sweet ride.
Sony also announced that EverQuest II is getting it's own official magazine called 'EQuinox'. Issues run $12.99 a pop, and feature strategy guides, maps, and more. Just try not to pay for your subscription with your World of Warcraft credit card, or you might rip open a hole in the RPG space-time continuum.
Check out the gallery, and raise a glass of ale to almost a decade of EverQuesting. Huzzah!
