Are you prepared for another epic adventure, set in the fantastical world of Norrath - inhabited by elves, orcs, and dwarves? Sony Online Entertainment wants to take you on an exciting journey through imaginative landscapes …
The world of EverQuest has enchanted passionate online RPG gamers for over ten years. Back in the day, part one of the series helped establish the popular genre of 3D-MMORPGs. Even now, thousands of players visit the EverQuest universe on a daily basis to fight in challenging and diverse dungeons and to defeat mighty bosses. Over the years, numerous add-ons have been released to the game, making Everquest one of the most expansive downloadable MMOs out there.
With EverQuest Next, Sony Online Entertainment wants to explore new aspects of the series' universe. The game will be set in an alternate universe with brand new creatures and original locations. However, there will still be many familiar specimen and settings from the game’s predecessors. Supposedly, EverQuest Next will be a sandbox game, giving players lots of freedom. It is still too early, however, to tell how much freedom players will eventually have in the finished game.
What we do know for sure, is that EverQuest Next’s gameplay will be based on the first part of the series where, in contrast to modern MMORPGs, an unlimited number of gamers are able to join forces in raids. The graphics are supposed to have a realistic look which will be especially notable in the depiction of characters. Publishers Sony Online Entertainment plan on making EverQuest Next the most extensive sandbox MMO of all times. Naturally, we will keep you updated as soon as there is new information on the game.
