Sony released expansion fans for EverQuest Secrets of Faydwer and EverQuest: II Rise of Kunark today. Complete retail boxes with all expansion packs will hit stores and digital download for $39.99.

“Launching dual expansions of this magnitude for two major MMOs on the same day is a Herculean feat,” said Russ Shanks, COO and vice president of Sony Online Entertainment. “It took a full year, dedicated development teams and the experienced infrastructure of SOE to be able to support these simultaneous launches.
