It’s quickly approaching that time of the year again, and we are excited to announce our 15th expansion, EverQuest II: Chaos Descending! Your adventures in the Planes aren’t over yet, and this year you’ll delve deeper into the Elemental Planes to deal with the Chaos that resides within them. You’ll encounter some familiar, and some not-so-familiar faces along your way, and your journeys will take you through the Earthen Badlands, the Kingdom of Wind, the Unresting Waters, the Burning Lands, and the Great Library.
These Planes are full of deadly, powerful gods and beings. One such goddess you will meet on your quest is E’ci, the very essence of ice and the second member of the Triumvirate of Water.
Make sure to stay tuned for additional information about this year’s expansion as we’ll be revealing more expansion details and information about pre-orders and beta in the upcoming weeks. EverQuest II: Chaos Descending is slated for launch this November with pre-order and beta coming in October!
To help pass the time, as we all wait eagerly for more planar adventures, there are a series of promotions running until expansion launch:
We hope you’ve been enjoying all the content so far this year, but there is more to come from the spooky Nights of the Dead, the celebratory Hereos’ Festival, and the chilly cheer of Frostfell. It is because of our players that we can deliver these magical moments, and we are incredibly grateful for the continued support of each and every one of you!
See you in Norrath!

Elementals are raging across Norrath! But who or what is to blame? The ranks of Freeport’s Academy of Arcane Science and Qeynos’ Concordium have been stretched thin as they attempt to investigate the destructive phenomenon.
Those wishing to volunteer their services for the investigation, and to help battle the onslaught, are encouraged to speak with the Concordium Pupil Adepts or Academy Apprentices who have been sent all across the world. In this time of need, heroes of all levels are encouraged to help quell these violent occurences - this means that all characters can participate in this prelude expansion event, and that the quest has requires no prerequisites!
Those who help defeat the raging elementals will be able to pick up a number of handsome new rewards! The Academy of Arcane Science and Concordium merchants have 41 new items, and a few returning ones, that they are looking to exchange for elemental storm shreds.
Norrath needs your help to put an end to the destruction! Against the Elements will be available up until the next EverQuest II expansion launches this November.
