Everquest Next

http://massively.joystiq.com/2013/08/02 ... explained/

Got voxels? Heh funnily enough when i hear that term, I think of that old Helicopter game, Commanche - and it's pixelated but awesome graphics back in the day.

First footage:

Looks pretty nuts. As an old EQ1 player, it stirs my loins.

As a big time EQ2 player, I will watch it with 'some' interest.

That is to say I pay most MMORPG's no interest at all (anymore) and will watch this space simply because of the enjoyment I got from EQ2.

Yeah i have very minimal interest in MMO's these days - but did you look at that video? The being able to destroy terrain or create stuff will be really interesting i reckon.

Posted about EQN in viewtopic.php?f=88&t=21303&p=471708#p471708 before seeing this thread.

Will be watching intently. SOE has some great ideas for EQN, and if they deliver on them it should turn out to be a nice mixup of the old MMO. Unfortunately we all know how SOE can be with ideas vs actually delivering on them so I'm wary. I am signed up for the beta already, you guys should too: https://www.everquestnext.com/beta-registration

I forgot that SOE made starwars galaxies, the game that was the greatest mmo of all time. Until they eventually fucked it up.

Seriously though great game. If you missed it in its heyday you missed out on something special.

SOE have done some good in their time with MMO's (and also some unspeakable evil).

I remember SWG as being an utter piece of shit. I know many people raved about it in the end, and i'm pretty sure a lot of that was nostalgic or what not, but my experience with it, having been utterly pumped for it, was that it was a fugly, clunky pos. Calling that the greatest mmo of all time? Um srsly Sotha

This EQ landmark, that sits alongside EQ Next as a seperate game, is looking pretty interesting. Going by what shows up in minecraft, there's going to be some pretty nuts creations turning up

This isn't really EQ:N - this is Landmark - which was formerly Everquest Next: Landmark - now just Landmark.

The quality of things people have been building in it is unbelievable. When you put tools into the hands of the every day people, the results...

I'm liking the graphics in that clip - it reminds me of a more detailed Torchlight. F2P or subscription based DJ?

It'll be f2p, but it's only in beta still. Big patch going in today adding swimming (they had added oceans bordering the continents but only aesthetically - you would run across them - now you'll be able to swim into them - but only the basic implementation i believe) and the big one today - caves. Meaning you can actually dig way down into the landscape and actually find them now, or they open up to the surface. In them there's treasure chests, much bigger resource nodes etc.

It's coming along great as a game. I am playing it only sporadically as 1. i pretty much suck at building, and 2. there'll be a big wipe at some point, so going gangbusters to gather all these resources is a bit of a waste of time when you'll eventually lose it. Though that being said, you can template anything you build, so when there is a wipe, you just gather your resources, and your amazing creations can persist.

It's one to keep an eye on though. Particularly everquest next. The way you can deform land in Landmark - when i think of spells in Everquest Next doing this - holy shitballs that's going to be good.
