Paradox Scandinavian Distribution signs EVERQUEST II: RISE OF KUNARK

Stockholm, Sweden (October 10, 2007) Paradox Scandinavian Distribution confirmed today that the company has signed the 4th expansion pack for EverQuest II: Rise of Kunark with publisher Koch Media for distribution in Scandinavia. The title features hundreds of new quests, promising exciting adventures and encounters; including class Epic Weapon quests for all classes.

Rise of Kunarka also introduces a new playable race, the Sarnak. This dragon-like humanoid inhabits the jungle islands of Timorous Deep, a new starting location for adventurers. Timorous Deep presents a wealth of new content for levels 1-20, and is one of the many new zones being developed for this expansion. Many of these zones are based on favourite gameplay areas from the original EverQuest, such as Karnor's Castle, the Lake of Ill Omen, Sebilis and Veeshan's Peak. Guilds, adventurers, and artisans can expect to benefit from a raised level cap, as all level caps are raised to 80, in addition to new solo, group, and raid content forlevels 65-80. Players will also be able to explore this new world astride a new mount -- the rampaging Kunarkian Rhino. Dozens of new NPCs, as well as a host of new weapons and armour await players as they explore and unravel the mysteries surrounding the beautiful, yet dangerous continent of Kunark.
