Update 44 to EverQuest 2 have been under development for awhile already. The folks of EQ2 are now presenting us with a visual preview of the upcoming update.
Dire hatred is once again seeping into the world of Norrath! With that new suffusion of ill intent, some of the residents in the major cities (Freeport, Qeynos, Kelethin, Neriak, Gorowyn and Haven) are lashing out amongst one another, with fights and brawls breaking out on a regular basis! The local guards and militia of those cities are strained thin trying to keep some semblance of peace.
You can choose to help cleanse the hearts of those that are affected to then bring that much needed peace to the lands by assisting Priests of Love (located in the "good" cities) or you can choose to further deepen the hate and thereby widen the doors of that shard, by assisting the Disciples of Hate (located in the "evil" and "neutral" cities).
The Shard of Hate itself has opened and is the reason for the recent influx of fighting! Do you have what it takes to step into that fiendish world, to help beat back the tide of maleficient hate or to claim your own hoard of treasure and fame?
