EverQuest®: Rain of Fear™ Now Available The 19th Expansion in the Long-Running MMO Raises Level Cap to 100, Adds New Zones, Raids, Quests, Items, and Spells

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Online Entertainment, LLC (SOE) today released the 19th expansion for the groundbreaking massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), EverQuest®: Rain of Fear™.

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.

"In its 14th year of continuous development, the EverQuest team continues to release high-quality, immersive content for EverQuest," said Thom Terrazas, Producer, EverQuest. "Rain of Fear adds a huge volume of new content to the game, and it finally breaks the three-digit barrier by raising the level cap to 100. We believe players will love adventuring through the new content and revisiting classic zones with exciting new encounters."
