EverQuest Next Overview

EverQuest Next is the latest game in the EverQuest franchise and is Daybreak Game Company's flagship new MMORPG. Like the first EverQuest and Everquest II, EverQuest Next is set in the world of Norrath, except in a Parallel universe - meaning major characters and locations may feel familiar, but their relationship with the world and other characters may be different. The game is built on the powerful ForgeLight Engine and will feature realistic graphics and lighting with a day and night system. EverQuest Next will launch with a unique progression system with no "levels" and a class system with 40 classes where players can mix and match abilities across classes to create a unique character. EverQuest Next was cancelled.

EverQuest Next Key Features:

  • Huge Variety & Multi Classing – 40 playable classes with 8+ races. Players can mix and match abilities across classes to create a unique character.
  • Dynamic World – player actions can permanently alter the world of Norrath. Even NPCs have specific motivations and AI which can be influenced by players.
  • Real Destructible Environments – entire world features destructible environments.
  • Siege Warfare – siege weapons play a key role in both PvE and PvP.
  • High Production Value – beautiful graphics, great music, and polished interface.
  • SoE Emote – custom emotes based on facial recognition technology with a webcam. Standard emotes also available.

Development History / Background: 

EverQuest Next was developed by the San Diego, California based Daybreak Game Company using the Forgelight Engine. The game was fully revealed to the world at PAX East 2013, but development for the game was hinted at years ago in the EverQuest 10th Anniversary Book in 2009. The game is split into two segments - a typical quest-driven MMORPG component called EverQuest Next and a special world building tool called EverQuest Next Landmark, which later just became "Landmark". Landmark isn't a traditional MMORPG, but rather just an online Sandbox environment where players can design structures and other things for use within EverQuest Next. The game was cancelled in early 2016.
