EverQuest to grow Serpent's Spine

Latest expansion to Sony Online's online role-player adds first new playable race in seven expansions, ups level cap to 75.



While the virtual world of the massively multiplayer online role-playing game EverQuest recently celebrated its seventh anniversary, Sony Online Entertainment today announced that it's about to hit another milestone. When The Serpent's Spine expansion pack released later this year, the world of EverQuest will have welcomed a dozen full add-on packs.

The Serpent's Spine will introduce the Drakkin, the first new player race to EverQuest in seven expansions. "Borne of humans touched by a dragon's blood," the Drakkin were created to protect the future of dragon kind. Sony Online hasn't said much else about the new race, but has indicated that players will be able to change physical aspects like color, scale markings, and horns in order to make their Drakkin characters unique.

The expansion also raises the game's level cap to 75, includes content for all levels, and adds a new starting city, the abandoned ogre city of Crescent Reach. Further additions include new zones, interactive objects, spells, "alternative advancement" abilities, and non-player characters.

The Serpent's Spine is set for a September release and will be available exclusively through digital distribution for $29.99.
