During an AMA-style Q&A on reddit Sony Online Entertainment President John Smedley dropped news that PS4 and MMORPG fans will love.
And now I'm set
In Sony We Trust
@combat Poorly optimized? Maybe when it was first released. Since then it has improved drastically and runs great on any PC remotely geared towards gaming.
@C_Menz It's been improved but the performance still isn't too great at least not on my pc. I can run most games maxed out without any issues, maybe my pc doesn't like this game.
So happy they made it official.
@combatcash I though Planetside 2 was pretty well-optimized. Seeing how there are at least tens of players on screen all the time I'm amazed my only fairly powerful PC can run it on rather high settings.
I didnt expect to see this coming. EQN? Man...
Combat, you probably need more ram? My old 8800gtx ran it fine with 8gigs of ram on win 7, and that was was awhile ago. Ram is usually the biggest thing in mmos with lots of players being able to show up on screen. If you aren't familiar, that gtx8800 is an old card, pretty much the same power, or less, than the ps3 and 360.
thats just creepy.
Will it be F2P on PS4? I always wanted to try Everquest but my pc sucks
That would be nice but I doubt it. I'd heard of Everquest, but never played it. CertifiedGamer shared a video below - you can't give something that cool away, surely?! Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yes. Everquest Next and Everquest Landmark will both be free to play I believe. Its on the official site's FAQ First question What is Everquest Next? Click it and says clear as day free to play. Landmark is the same as well. https://www.everquestnext.c... I don't see why it wouldn't be the same on PS4 considering how many free to play MMOs are already set for PS4 that keep their free to play status.
They have always given the free trials...
They haven't said anything about Everquest: Landmark but I'm assuming it will also come to the PS4. If people aren't familiar with Landmark, it's basically LBP for MMO fans.
I think Everquest Next and Landmark are the same thing, Landmark being the alpha/beta program they're launching for Everquest Next...I could be wrong...but last time I checked that's all Landmark was, as well as the fact that it's called Everquest Next: Landmark, and Everquest Next is called just that...but if you find anything else out, it'd be good to know.
They're separate. When the dev was asked whether Landmark would be pulled once Next released, he said 'hell no.' Landmark is a planet for creating your own unique towns, buildings or whatever you fancy. It comes with materials that you have to find and assets you have to fashion from materials around the world. If you create something interesting, you have a chance of that content being put into Next, and you can sell your assets to other gamers to use. If that gamer then includes one of your assets in a bigger project, you get a percentage of his payment if he then sells it on. It explains some of it here. I'm not sure if it contains the creation/sharing/payment scheme but it gives you a good idea of what Landmark is: http://www.youtube.com/watc... This is shorter and explains what Landmark is: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It's the alpha stage for Everquest Next. They're giving us the opportunity to put our ideas in Everquest Next Landmark, for- "Everquest Next" -before it releases.
Basically Everquest Landmark is like minecraft with Everquest, you make assets and the devs may put them in game. At least that's how I got it.
^^^ I feel like I remember them saying you get paid if they use the stuff you build in landmark, too.
I am perfectly fine being PlanetSide 2 bitch
Holy crap Everquest Next is coming to PS4! Awesome, if no one knows what this game is you have to watch the reveal.
GREAT news. This is awesome. I really hope they are cross server. Though Sony isn't exactly known for that with their MMO's. Can still hope though. I wonder what this new IP could be about. Or what genre of game it fits. Hmm...
I am thinking if this new ip is not Star Wars then its Sci-Fi related. Maybe a Star Wars/Mass Effect mmo type of mash up ip with lightswords, and magic powers of some sort. Just my guess, but I think it would be cool if it was something like that. I wouldn't mind a new Star Wars MMO though. The Old republic has consumed most of my friends that used to play Jedi Academy and it sucks to me personally. So I wouldn't mind something better to come along.
been hoping for an everquest game on console for years. amazing games
Sony's laying the perfect trap to catch me. I see a PS4 in my future.
Good move for Sony to bring their biggest PC game series to the PS4.
SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
Fuk Yea! I knew this day would come. That's why I always believe in you SONY :)
I assume most if not all SOE games will arrive on PS4 as well? Since most of these PC to PS4 ports were developed by SOE themselves.
Now this is cool news!
Yea seriously! This is AWESOME news,was impressed with the demo they showed for Everquest Next,the whole "destroy the ground and you'll go under to a new layer of levels" really got me interested.
Not really a big fans of MMOs so this news is alittle disappointing to me personally. @PeaSFor That's basically what I said but I forgot that on this site you have to be overly excited about every bit of ps4 related good news, even if it's about a genre you have no interest in and will not be spending alot of time playing. Like the majority of people here. @Studio-YaMi, oh joy, a stalker, please tell me where in the TOS am I not allowed to express a negative or in this case a NEUTRAL opinion. Grow up, you're acting like it takes someone more than 30 seconds to comment. Don't like my posts then grow up and use the ignore button. No longer reading your posts. Kthanxbye
Not fans of MMOs AT ALL, im still happy for everyone who like it.
You seem to always hop on topics and news you "don't care about" but have the time to comment negatively about it. Such a waste of a comment..
You're disappointed because the MMORPG arm of Sony works on MMORPGs? Well, good luck with that.
Yup this site isn't too kind on folks who don't think that every sony release is golden. There's no denying that sony releases many exclusive games but they're not all great. Variety is good though. @isa_scout I think his issue is more on the fact that on this site you can't express any dislike towards any sony first party game without getting tons of disagrees.
This site is especially unknind to folks who type completely nonsensical things just for the sake of typing. like "i'm not a fan of MMO, so I'm disappointed that a MMO company makes MMOs"
I never did understand why people worry so much over the disagree to agree ratio seriously...I disagreed with your comment because well I'm excited. It's cool if your not excited and your not losing a bubble or anything. I simply didn't agree with your comment so I clicked disagree. It doesn't mean your wrong or I'm wrong just means we both have a different opinion and disagree....Thus, the disagree button.
a lot of people on this site use to say they dont like mmos i wonder what changed their mind. how times changed. i respect your comment at least your being honest tho.
What would disappoint you about MMOs coming to PS4? If you don't want to play them then don't play them. How is it a bad thing or anything to be disappointed about at all?
Yeah, the more games coming over means more variety to choose from, and more likely to find something new you like.
Yeah I'd say I'm in the same boat, however I've never tried an MMO because I've never been into PC gaming. This does look like a good entry point for someone like me. Also the crafting mechanics look pretty intuitive for the genre.
Lol you're telling other people to grow up? You're one of the people that need to grow up the most on here. Why do you think you have one bubble?
You have a rather annoying habit of trolling PS4 articles. I hope you don't start crying about PlayStation fans trolling XB1 articles.
CrossingEden, you're welcome to your opinion, but two problems you have are 1) it makes little sense to make a negative comment about all mmos on an article about "Sony *ONLINE* entertainment" which is different from the PlayStation brand as they produce mmos. If you don't like mmos, why comment on a mmo dev's news. 2) you say things with such disrespect that people vote you down and/or disagree with you. Then you go into the immature "I'm always right mode"and edit your post because you still don't know what respect means to gain bubbles and communicate. That comment only made you look ignorant, petty, and immature (immature has nothing to do with age).
In high school we all knew a kid who sold his Everquest account to some Canadian for 25k. Then he dropped out of school. Everyone thought he was cool.
best 25k i ever spent.
Alright! Edit: "SWG PLAYERS – OUR NEXT GAME (not announced yet) IS DEDICATED TO YOU." New Star Wars MMO coming?
He said "completely new IP" so no.
And the body blows just keep on coming. At this rate the XB1 is going to have to drop to $199 before I can consider buying it...
Sony is doing really well promising tons of games I hope they deliver on these release dates. I don't like delays.
When was the last time there was positive news for XO? I'm asking seriously because it seems like there's lot of positive media surrounding PS4 but I haven't heard anything good from XO for a while...
Sick, I've been hoping they'd announce that! Figured they'd wait ill E3, but I guess they've got enough bombs to drop as it is. Not usually into MMOs, but this one just seems different. It looks more fast and fluid, which I like.
mmos been doing that, this is more about scale and impact on the world. if you wanted just that you should of been looking into mmos a long time ago. just saying
Yeah, I don't game on PC though and that's more where they're at. I've tried a few, but the slow ass combat usually turns me off of 'em.
I thought Planetside 2 was already out on PS4. I even thought it was a launch game for some reason.
Yea, for some reason..
No, never been a launch title (and they never said it was). At least now we know it's coming "soon" enough, i hope =P
When can I get this please?!? I have an xbox one and seriously it's nothing special!! I played ps4 at my friends house and loved it:( they need to start shipping
Depends where you live check GS,Best buy,wal mart,target,Toys R'us etc often. OT:Awesome can't wait
Hahahaha. I just looked at your previous comments and I am pretty sure you don't have an xbox one. You have been putting it down since before it came out and saying how great the PS4 will be. You were talking about gaikai a year ago. Why are you so concerned with this? I honestly feel kind of bad for you... you put so much into this. This is a big thing in your life. It is a little pathetic. I just don't really know what else to say. If you like PS4 thats great, but don't love a company so much that you sell your soul
Why can't he dislike his Xbox One, why does he have to be lying? I've seen a lot of other people who supposedly have both and then go on to hate on PS4, why do you need to get defensive?
Alright how do I upload a picture on here with my phone? Because I got the shitty xbox because I couldn't find the ps4 anywhere, and all my friends were getting xbone so I got it.
You made a bad decision then. There is no way you would be happy with it. You have constantly been talking about how bad the xbox one is when compared with the PS4 since before either came out. It is hilarious to me that such an avid fanboy would buy a console that he already says was shit. also, I would like to know what you don't like about the xbox. I am honestly just curious @unreal. I don't care if anyone dislikes the xbox one or not. But this guy made up his mind a long time ago and then just bitches about it.
If u have one post a pic of it or i wont believe you.. I dont like those fake ps4 users that swear to have both consoles but my ps4 has no games or isnt good for some reason, well in this case i feel like your comment its kinda like those, but telling that you got a x-box one. If is true prove it..
If you just look at his comment history you know that he is a PS4 fanboy. It is ridiculous how much he has backed up the PS4 and put down the xbox. He just went into 2 or 3 different articles and posted pretty much the same thing at the same time. I need fanboys to stop
Everquest next is going to define next generation RPGs, for those of you guys that have never seen the reveal check it out. http://youtu.be/sDq2a3zy_6M
DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm getting this
Dude it looks so good doesn't it!
