On Friday June 17th, 2016 Daybreak Game Company announced that both Legends of Norrath and PlanetSide 1 would be shutting down over the Summer. The collectible card game counterpart to the EverQuest universe, Legends of Norrath, would be shut down on Wednesday, August 17th at 12:00 PM PST. A post on the game’s official site explained:
“For the past nine years, EverQuest and EverQuest II players have interacted with the world of Norrath through the Legends of Norrath Trading Card Game. Legends of Norrath has not had an active development team for quite some time and in the best interest of our company and players, we have made the difficult decision to close the servers.”
The post continues to explain that booster pack and monthly All Access Memberships will cease to be sold after Monday, July 18th, 2016. The post also describes how these loot rewards will be integrated into EverQuest going forward.
“We know some of you are extremely enthusiastic about some of the items that were previously introduced in the Legends of Norrath TCG packs. These loot rewards will continue to be available to players through other means. Look to the Marketplace for packs which give an opportunity for rewards from previous LON sets.”
