EverQuest II: The Shadow Odyssey Pre-order Bonuses Revealed

Posted by: Eva at 10/16/2008 2:48 PM
SOE has revealed two very different pre-order bonuses for EverQuest II: The Shadow Odyssey. While the Legends of Norrath: Oathbreaker card and in-game bonus is the same for both the boxed retail and the digital download bundles, the other incentives will determine which way EQ2 players should jump.

The retail pre-order package offers a pewter figurine of the in-game dire-bear pet/mount. You get it as a cub which grows into a mount. You also get a collectible poster. The digital download pre-order will get you an in-game pet void beast complete with cage. The decision seems pretty easy to me unless you have an aversion to collectibles and already have an awesome in-game mount.

EQ2: The Shadow Odyssey comes out November 18th. The full press release including pre-order details as well as basics on the expansion itself follows the break.
