HomeLAN have also questioned Sony Online's Chris Cao about Everquest 2, the upcoming massively multiplayer RPG sequel:
HomeLAN - How does EverQuest II's back story relate to the established EverQuest continuity?
Chris Cao - EverQuest II is set 500 years in the future of the current world of Norrath. The cataclysmic explosion of the distant moon of Luclin fractured the continents of the world, dispersing populations and destroying empires. Now, only the cities of Qeynos and Freeport remain. Players will explore outward from these last strongholds of civilization, seeking to discover and explore the mysteries still locked within the Shattered Lands while attempting to regain the lost powers of the elder world.
