EverQuest Next is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), and the next entry in the EverQuest franchise, being developed by Sony Online Entertainment. While no release date has been mentioned, the game is very likely to be released on Microsoft Windows (no other platforms were talked about) sometime in 2014. The game will utilize the Forgelight Engine, emphasizing more realistic game characters, as well as lighting effects.
EQ Next takes place in a parallel timeline, in Norrath, and is not directly related to previous entries in the EverQuest franchise. There will be familiar places and names, but the game will have its own lore. The game will feature fully destructible environments, thanks to using a voxel graphics style, as well as an improved AI system that allows enemies to adapt to situations and learn from them.
