New EverQuest Expansion Next Month

The EverQuest website has the news on a new expansion for the venerable MMORPG, saying this will be released on October 1st, following the release of the game's September update, which is expected next week (thanks Ten Ton Hammer). Here's a bit on the plan:
We are excited to announce we have an expansion on the way – that’s right, expansion – not “campaign.” As we’ve been toiling away this year, the content we’ve been working on evolved and grew more than we expected.

We wanted this expansion to have content that reached beyond the highest-level players. So, in addition to new and updated zones for levels 105, we are including two instanced raid zones for levels 75 to 105 to play in together! These “level agnostic” raid zones will balance themselves to the highest level player in your raid. It just so happens that these two level agnostic zones are the original Plane of Fear and Plane of Hate! So if you never got a chance to raid in those planes, or long for them, you can relive those days with a broader range of players when we launch.

This expansion includes over 15 raids – after getting feedback for more raids over last year’s expansion – and a ton of level-scaling missions and Heroic Adventures! And as with previous releases, there will be new AAs, spells, and gear. The story is innovative and impacts gameplay in interesting ways too.

In addition, if you purchase (or pre-order) the next expansion, you’ll also get access to ALL of the previous expansion content.

Yeah you really didn't get what I said.

Nor you what he said.

But that's cool. I would expect someone who has only played WoW, and not also EQ1, to insinuate such a comparison were fair. Thing is, it was an exceedingly different time back in 1999, and five years might not sound like a lot, but in the MMO industry, *that* five years really was.

EQ1 hit 450k ish subscribers at its peak, WoW over 12 million. You want to "adjust for inflation", as it were, and all of a sudden it's a very different ballgame.
