The gates to a newly rediscovered continent open with this release, the seventh expansion pack for Sony Online Entertainment's seminal MMORPG EverQuest. Gates of Discord is designed to add to the main game and its earlier expansions in a number of ways, including 20 new zones, 20 new NPC models, more tradeskill recipes, and additional story-driven quests. A new character class, the Berserker, allows players to wield heavy, two-handed axes and hurl large objects at their foes, while new leadership tools become available to higher-level characters with the appropriate experience.
Above all else, the expansion unlocks an entirely new continent to EQers, full of unprecedented danger and reward. While no reliable information has been gathered on this forgotten land that lies across the Abysmal Sea, some have begun to give credence to the prophecies of a mage called Calliav Ginium, who had previously been dismissed as a lunatic. Ginium spoke of the "Legion of Mata Muram," a vicious people known for their sadistic hunting class, their crazed warriors, and a class of dark priests thought to originate from pure magic. Only those Norrathians powerful — or foolish — enough to seek this lost continent can know if there is any truth in the terrifying warnings of the mad prophet. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
