DENVER– July 9, 2009– The final chapter in the compelling Ethernauts saga comes to a dazzling finish with today’s launch of Legends of Norrath™ Storm Break, developed by Sony Online Entertainment (SOE).
The new expansion concludes the tale of centuries past, when horrible beasts from the Void poured into Norrath. A small band of heroes, the Ethernauts, seeks to repel the invasion, but are greeted with mistrust by the peoples of Norrath, and ultimately forced to make heroic sacrifices to save the world.
“Over the past year, the Ethernauts saga has taken players deep into the world of Norrath,” said Scott Martins, director of development for SOE Denver.“Storm Break is the final chapter in a three-set arc, filling in the back story of last year’s EverQuest II release, The Shadow Odyssey.“
Storm Break features:
• New Cards: More than 240 new game cards adding new strategies and gameplay.
• New Loot: Incredible loot cards, including new horse and hydra mounts, an illusion that will turn EQ players into a flying dragon and, for your daily EQII raids, a cloak that repairs all your items once per day!
• Continuing Storyline: The continuation of the epic Ethernauts storyline that is the groundwork for The Shadow Odyssey™.
Developed at SOE’s Denver studio, Legends of Norrath is the only online trading card game based on and playable from within SOE’s popular EverQuest and EverQuest II MMOs, as well as from a free stand-alone client using a free SOE Station Account ID (available at www.station.com).
