"Please note that these are our initial pre-Alpha requirements," the post on SOE's official website explains. "We will be performing optimizations throughout our testing period and hope to lower these requirements over time."

Is Everquest Next the final title or still a working title?

I expected the requirements for this thing to be ridiculous! Apart from the recommended ram (which I have double of) it's all really attainable. Props to Sony.

They look to have abandoned any intention of trying to stick to the original or even the 2nd's art direction. This disappoints me. It looks like a cartoon more than a game.

@elpeace1 This actually isn't much at all, recommended requirements can be met by a low-tier PC.

@elpeace1lmao, have you ever seen anything from it?  There's destructible environment  and a fuckton of particle effects, and the game looks pretty decent if you ask me.

@nurnberg Landmark is world builder type game and the other is the proper RPG. they have announced that people that make fantastic buildings could see they're creations in the actual game. does this help. you could also go to everquestnext.com to read about them.

@silversix_it's definitely not the best out there, specially the grounds' low texture, but the cartoonish theme's kinda nice to look at, ain't THAT ugly. but it seems like a game in 2001 or so :P

@realone2005@lostn Are they seriously going to call a game 'Everquest Next'? What will they call the sequel to it? 'Everquest Next Next'?

@bouff@nurnberg other words the players create the content and Soe takes it from you and sell it us for money while creators get a pat on the back.

@WA31988@silversix_ As a company what would you do? Have everyone be able to play it decently or have a few play it excellently? Now ask yourself, which would garner more money in the long run? There ya go......

@Kinguard73@WA31988@silversix_  it still depends, if i had a gaming development company, i would target both of em, i would have franchises that suits casuals and make tons of those, as casuals tends to get bored quickly and always want new stuff, tho not necessary better stuff such as angrybird junk (as a stable decent income source).

I would also have some games i'm extremely passionate about, ones that i can show off my creativity in, stuff like metal gear, the last of us..etc. i know those won't target everybody but it still reserves me a respected name in the industry. yes, i want money of course but i also want a name.
