Taking place centuries after the events of the original EverQuest, this second installment introduces fans to a very different Norrath: a planet that in 500 years has endured numerous catastrophes that have changed its nature and altered the destinies of its people. The planet's moon Luclin collided with Norrath, bringing about an entire "Age of Cataclysms" that included not only "The Shattering" (the collision of Luclin with Norrath), but also many other catastrophes such as world wars and divine interference. Now, during Norrath's "Time of Destiny," players will explore through the shadows of these events that Norrath has endured over the past 500 years.
At the beginning, players will start out on Atonica, the original continent of EverQuest. As a result of "The Shattering," Atonica has been broken into multiple, smaller continents. Though only the shattered Atonica is available to explore at first, players can look forward to many developments through live updates and planned expansion pack content. It should be noted, however, that there is plenty to explore here, with the cities Qeynos and Freeport each containing 17 zones.
Improved graphics rendering is apparent through the players' ability to customize their characters' appearances with various attributes: eye and eyebrow shape and color, ears, cheeks, chin, and lips are all customizable. The cycle of day turning to night is nothing new from the original to this latest version of EverQuest, however the visuals of a rotating sky, turning from daylight into a star- and nebula-filled night sky, is. Not just a graphical touch, this progression from day into night also affects gameplay, as certain spells become more or less powerful according to the time of day.
