EverQuest Next works on older PCs, may eventually make its way to PS4
Franchise director Dave Georgeson at the event said that the team needs to make sure the PC version is “kickass” before hitting another platform.“We need to make sure that it’s a kickass game on PC before we do anything else,” he said. “We’re going to nail down all our questions and design and everything like that so that it’s a really good game. Then we’ll talk about other platforms.”
Moreover,the online game will be more interesting if you have enough EverQuest Next Platinum.The game is also controller-friendly, according to Georgeson, which was an accident instead of intentional.
“we never intend to make a controller friendly game,” he said. “But when we decided to minimize the number of buttons you can use to just one hotbar, it almost accidentally becomes controller friendly. That’ll be a cool thing if and when we get to [a PS4 version]. The fact that it doubles for controllers is just a bonus.”
The game will be scalable for older PCs, much more so than PlanetSide,because of the modified version of the ForgeLight engine, said Georgeson, the team is shooting for much lower system specs. Our goal is to be able to allow people with 4 or 5 year old machines to be able to play.”
SOE is currently accepting beta applications for EverQuest Next. And more brilliant game scenes can be enjoyed, especially though the EQN Power leveling service.
