Take a Closer Look to EverQuest Next

Everquest Next, produced by Sony Online Entertainment, is the third of the series of a huge multiplayer game available online. This fun free to play sandbox game is powered by a newly developed ForgeLight Engine. This gives the game lightning speed and makes slightly more realistic characters. There is definitely amazing clarity and stylized graphics that can even show facial expressions.

The first two EverQuest games were beyond great, but this next one is much better. Enjoy a MMORPG of fantasy and worlds that you can’t even imagine. EverQuest Next is actually a parallel world (Norath) from the other EverQuest game worlds, although many of the characters and locations are very familiar.

This EverQuest game is different also because of “Landmark” which gives you almost total control over building your game with easy to use tools. One of the biggest features is that you can actually build ANYTHING. Landmark gives you complete reign over everything. The second greatest feature is that you can destroy ANYTHING. This makes getting rid of the enemy a very interesting feat as you can do things like bury them in an avalanche. But have no fear, things will regenerate after about five minutes.

Because this is a massive online game played with others all over the world, each day might reveal something new – it all depends on the players. You never know when a king might die or the world might be destroyed.

Choose between eight different “classes” then become armed with two weapons and up to six abilities. Later in the game, you will be able to pick others and change them as you explore the other “classes”. This should be very intriguing game play as SOE was going for something almost completely new for the role-playing gamers. With the FogeLight engine, Landmark, and the greatest worlds combined to give you constant entertainment.

EverQuest Next to be the Biggest Sandbox MMO Ever?

The next installment in the EverQuest franchise, accurately titled EverQuest Next, is reportedly the biggest sandbox MMO ever made. Attempting to clean the disappointing EverQuest II smudge from their record, which had nothing but linear gameplay, Sony Online Entertainment is making an epic open-ended world where you can choose to do what ever you want. That’s right, you are no longer required to grind your levels in the same boring old sewers that everyone else is fighting for creeps in. In fact, there aren’t even levels. You will be able to choose from 40 different classes. You will have the option to customize your character anyway you like with the variety of skills that you can mix and mash up.

EverQuest Next is offering gamer’s destruction on a large scale. The engine is not just massive, but its world is ever changing due to buildings and landscapes that are able to be destroyed. So, if you want to take that big, beautiful rolling plain with livestock grazing in it into a crater and a mushroom cloud, you will have the option! If destruction isn’t your thing, you can also use a program called EverQuest Landmark which will allow you to create objects and buildings within the game the same way the developers did the first time around.

The game is also boasting some heightened NPC intelligence, which I’m sure we have all seen hyped in games in the past and never quite meets expectations. We can only hope that the developers of EverQuest Next have taken that into consideration and have made what little grind there may be in this game a little more interesting than in its predecessors.

The developers at SOE are striving to make a game that changed the world the same way the first EverQuest did.
