Everquest 2 producer’s letter to players

What did you think: we were too busy fighting to be literate?

Dear beloved players of SOE‘s Everquest 2:

You love the Echoes of Faydwer expansion. You really love the Echoes of Faydwer expansion!

Well okay, that wasn’t exactly what he said, but in the latest Producer’s Letter at the EQ2 community site, producer Scott Hartsman mentions how the Echoes expansion has been “the best-selling expansion to date,” drawing back old players and spurring interest among newcomers (speaking of which, the demo’s still available for anyone who wants to try it out).

The devs have certainly heard the voices of the players who’ve played the expansion, and Scott says that they will try to repeat certain themes (and changes) which were introduced in Echoes in future iterations and expansions of EQ2:

  • A whole lot less zoning.
  • Big, interesting areas to adventure in.
  • Finding out what’s happened to the places you care about the most in the last 500 years.
  • New and interesting races.
  • Nostalgia. Finding out what specific, interesting personalities have been up to.
  • Sense of familiarity without knowing whatÂ’s exactly where, everywhere.
  • Strongly-themed dungeons with quests.

Other than that, Scott also wishes all the players a Happy Frostfell this festive season, and a happy “burn down the good guy’s city.” Okay, maybe not burning down anything – although it makes a good tree ornament – but he also reminds players of all the fun and wonderful things they can do for the holidays just by logging into EQ2… wait, we covered this already, click here for more details.
