SAN DIEGO, Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Online Entertainment, LLC (SOE) today announced the launch of EverQuest®II: Tears of Veeshan™, the 10th expansion for the hit massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). The Tears of Veeshan expansion features engaging new content, including a compelling storyline to experience, a new overland realm to explore, massive dungeons, dragon-themed Alternative Advancements (AAs), the new Channeler class, and a host of challenging quests and items.
"EverQuest II will reach a variety of major milestones over the next year, from today's 10th expansion launch of Tears of Veeshan, through next year's 10th anniversary celebration," said Holly Longdale, Sr. Producer, EverQuest II. "Our team remains as dedicated today as it was during EQII's initial launch. This expansion carries on our tradition of delivering rich features and content… only this time we've filled the skies with an army of everyone's favorite winged beasts!"
EverQuest II: Tears of Veeshan is set amongst the Eternal Broodlands, resting place of the dragon dead. Here, players will rediscover familiar fallen dragons, including Yelinak (now the keeper of the Vesspyr Isles), and learn of Kerafyrm the Awakened's quest to rule all.
