EverQuest 2’s Latest Expansion, Empire of Antiquity, Now Live and Ready for Exploration!

Empire of Antiquity is now live and promises to be the darkest and most challenging chapter yet.

Gamers have already explored the Elddar city of Takish’Hiz and helped defeat Malachiel Caedor. Now, they can explore the darker reaches of Norrath and investigate the mysterious whispers that have been circulating. Historians, treasure seekers, and devoted worshipers are all itching to explore the region and discover new power.

The Empire of Antiquity introduces new, powerful artifacts that can be discovered, along with impressive arcanum that can be learned as players investigate the history of the Elddar Empire. Players will also need to battle aggressive aspects of growth while protecting the Empire from terrors both inside and outside of the realm.
