Sony Online Entertainment has announced the launch of the "Monument and Might" game update for "EverQuest II", which introduces research assistants, adds 80 new quests in the Rise of Kunark overland zones, gives players a chance to write and distribute books, and includes the new Charasis West Wing group quests.
EverQuest® II’s game update, Monument and Might reveals the true appearance of Kurn’s Tower to Norrath; panicking the inhabitants of Kunark and intriguing adventurers to its doors. A new void anchor emanates from the tower, as if a ghastly chord has tied its fate with the invading void. A warlord from a far-off land has turned his conquering eye upon the lands of Kunark and will stop at nothing to find a great power that may lie just within the tower’s walls!
The Monument and Might game update is scheduled to go live on June 16, 2009."
