Haven’t seen a thread on this and was wondering if anyone is excited at all about the upcoming release of EQNext? There are really two games, the yet unreleased EQNext and the (currently) in Alpha testing EQNext Landmark.
EQNext Landmark is a lot like Minecraft with some of the better player made being incorporated into the actual EQNext. I’m in Landmark but my piece of crap three-year-old, off-the-shelf HP laptop really chokes on the graphics. Its playable but barely. I’m not much of a ‘builder’ so I’ve just been harvesting and giving the items to a friend that enjoys that sort of thing.
While lots of folks are enjoying Landmark I’m really looking forward to what EQNext will be like. It sounds (from various developer interview, blogs, etc) that they’re really taking the AI in a new direction. They’ve been fairly quiet about the character development aspects of the game but they keep hinting that EQNext is going to be a game changer.
Anyone else looking forward to it, why or why not?
