Destiny of Velious Video

SOE releases Velious Fan Faire media.

SOE has released the press information on Destiny of Velious, and with it the concept art, screenshots and video from the 2010 SOE Fan Faire. 

Following the events of Sentinel's Fate, the twin Swords of Destiny, Soulfire and the Qeynos Claymore, have been drained of their powers, setting the stage for the destruction of the EverQuest universe.  The prophecy known as Age's End begins to unfold in the legendary continent of Velious and it is here where the war for Norrath will arise. For there to be any chance to save Norrath, the Swords of Destiny must be restored. Norrath’s guardians who undertake this burden will be tested by labyrinthine dungeons, the harsh Velious tundra and powerful creatures including the God of War himself, Rallos Zek. To succeed would mean ultimate glory. To fail would mean annihilation

I am most looking forward to seeing if the Coldain survived and visiting my beloved Tower of Frozen Shadow and seeing if Tserina is still lingering about.
Ok now i believe you :P

Very nice clips, the transitions between White and Frozen to Green and vibrant was very cool. Makes you kind of wonder if as you progress through areas that they'll change.
