I have no absolutely no idea about the EverQuest series, but man am I interested now. Without further ado, videos worth gazillion words and all that.

I can see the game is still in alpha, but what really excites me are the possibilities of dynamic combat. This can turn out to be really good.

Pretty much anywhere that features some form of gaming news.

It looks really damn awesome, they musta sunk some serious money into it. I've never played EverQuest, but I would definitely try that out.

EQ 1 and 2 are Free to Play now. EQ 1 still had the better community though.

No those videos are from the EQ Next unveiling today, there is a lot to look forward too with this game. Also they are releasing something called EQ Next Landmark later this year, it's basically minecraft on planetside 2 engine, and sony may call upon players creations and use them for the real world when it's made. There is a LOT of good things about this game.

Looks good, though I don't like the characters.

More than two characters. The class system ATM is 8 classes, with apparently 20+ more you can find in the game. Eq1 classes are war/wizard, monk, magician, necromancer, shaman, berserker, paladin, shadow Knight, cleric, bard, enchanter, beastlord, Druid, ranger,rogue. Eq2 breaks those down even more, well have to see on eqnext

That looked a bit alpha-ish to me! But it had some good potential as far as I can see! :) would love to try it of course!

Oh yea, it's very alpha-ish. They are trying to let the community help build it up, which is crazy. You can apply to the beta on their web site already.

They also have these polls on their website with which they let us decide how things should be done. Like for example how customizable do we want armors to be.

I've never played EverQuest, but I'm very interested in what I'm seeing. What kind of games were the first 2?

The grandfather of MMOs. Lets just say WoW took a lot from the EverQuest series from what I've heard.

Very interesting game. Something I'd really could get in to. I'm happy that this game will be free-to-play, though I'm afraid It'll be limited like all the other F2P games. Time will tell I suppose.
