Yikes, that environment really does look Planetside esque haha. Lookin' good, I never played EQ2 but I'm definately interested in this considering it looks to be doing a few new things

Yeah dude, this just jumped to my top most anticipated MMO with Wildstar on second place. If you're interested in finding out more about the game, there's a PC gamer interview with the devs: http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/08/03/everquest-next-interview/

PS4 and PC crossplay? Come on SOE we know you can do it :P (and yes I did read that Alekzis)

Looks cool. And it's F2P! :D

This could actually be an MMO I could get behind. It looks amazing!

What's with all the MMOs suddenly coming out? ESO, EQN... it's like they were waiting for WoW to start fading away :))) sadly mmos are just too time intensive for me. 

That being said, this does look amazing!

Looks a lot like Wildstar, but that's not a bad thing. Everquest was my second MMO and it was a decent time, but I doubt I'll try this one. Especially not with FFXIV coming back into my life this year.

So far, not impressed with what's shown. Movement options are neat, but a big world is a detriment without things to fill it -- FFXIV proved that -- and unique movement methods can get stale quickly -- as Aion proved. The destruction effects are unique in the MMO space, but they look ridiculous right now. All that said, I'm willing to suspend judgement until it gets closer to release or they show more of the quest/leveling structure.

Did you guys read up on all the pre release content? They will also be dedicating a lot of game decision polls and contests to their fans and players. There will be a mobile game/app soon to let you get your feet wet on the lore, and Everquest Landmark which will be a sandbox environment dev kit for the game. It will be like EQ meets minecraft--anyone will have the ability to create and render objects, structures, and environments in the game and then post them up for sale. They will also have the potential to be voted on to actually make it into EQ Next!!!

Being Free to Pay makes me disinterested. I just don't trust Devs that release games that way. It had me intrigued, though.

Leigh Alexander Gets Fisked

So Leigh Alexander at Gamasutra, Luke Plunkett at Kotaku and Dan Golding (who has written for many places), have written articles on the same day, on the same subject. That's an interesting coincidence. It is also interesting that Chris Plante over at Polygon also had a very similar article, covering the same issues, on the same day though it was written more as a summary of the past week. Now there are time zones to consider but these were all published within 24…
