Destiny of Velious Postponed & Pre-Orders Announced #EQ2

Players will be able to pre-order the next EQ2 expansion starting on January 18th according to the EQ2players web site. On that same note, if you were looking forward to diving into the expansion at the previous release date of February 8th, you’ll have a little bit more of a wait. It’s been said that the expansion will now be releasing the 22nd of February.

As you know, we’ve been working hard on the “Destiny of Velious” expansion pack. It was originally scheduled for release on Feb 8th, but after getting feedback from players, spending time playing the game internally, and discussing ways to make things better, we’ve decided to move the release date back to Feb 22nd instead.

Feb 22nd gives us another couple of weeks for polish, tuning, and a honing of the fun factor for the expansion. We think the wait will be well worthwhile.

Check EverQuest2.com for the announcement on pre-order dates! And also stay tuned for an announcement about a raft of cool events coming out in the week after DoV becomes available!

On a side note, we’ll be adding another batch of players into the Closed Beta on Jan 24th, so if you put in an application and haven’t been accepted yet, don’t give up yet. Your time may be coming! – SmokeJumper announced on the EQ2 forums.

Fine tuning is always a good thing and I have no doubt that the developers and community involved are all working incredibly hard to get this expansion out the door. Thoughts? Please feel free to post them in comments below!

    *sarcasm on* SOE is too busy working on Marketplace items to worry about an expansion being on time! *sarcasm off*

    Sorry, just had to vent..

    Two weeks really? From what I hear they need two months

  5. My main thought when I saw this was that I hadn’t realized it was so close to the planned date. Having an NDA this late is relatively normal for SOE, but I feel like there’s unusually little information on what’s in the expansion and why someone would want to buy it, not even the usual highly scripted PR articles.

    Yeah, I got thoughts all right. Mostly as to where they can shove it. But since I’m a nice guy I’ll just move on. ;)
