SOE Employees Regale Virtual Tales Of Yore
We won’t be getting any actual information until SOE Live in August, but Sony Online Entertainment have opened up a new website dedicated to the upcoming sequel to the original MMORPG success story – Everquest. The website contains five videos that tell a different story relating to Everquest and Everquest 2, from dressing up in costumes for a wedding, to helpful parenting tips, and winning a car. You can check them out by heading over to the Everquest Next website here.
Details are rather light on the ground at the moment, but we do know that Everquest Next will use the Forgelight engine that is currently used for Planetside 2 (which means huge open areas of land and thousands of players online at once are possible) and SOE studio head John Smedley has hinted heavily at the idea that it will be a huge sandbox game, distancing itself from the theme park experience that was Everquest 2. We’ll keep you posted on any new information as it emerges.
