SOE Deals Out Legends of Norrath Oathbreaker Details

LoN-Oathbreaker.jpg Legends of Norrath — Sony Online Entertainment’s online card game series based on the popular EverQuest MMORPG universe — just keeps on expanding, with SOE today releasing first details on the series’ fourth card set, Oathbreaker.

“Oathbreaker has played a significant role in the sequence of Legends of Norrath development both internally and with the player community,” said Scott Martins, director of development, SOE Denver. “With over 250 new cards to enhance your strategies, Oathbreaker is a perfect point to jump into the game, just in time for the monthly Legends of Norrath Championship Series, which is set to culminate in August in Indianapolis at Gen Con Indy 2008. At that event, 32 players will compete for a total prize pool of $100,000!”

Currently slated to launch on June 19th, Oathbreaker promises to complete the main Inquisitor storyline that all started in Oathbound, Legend of Norrath‘s first card set. Below is the complete list of new features to look forward to:
