'EverQuest Next' Screens Showcase Norrath Reimagined

By: Miguel Concepcion

Feerrott

Along with a world reborn, we have 'EverQuest Next' screenshots and images! This new take on Norrath is well beyond a mere "EverQuest HD". Its multilayered environments and variety of enemy sizes give 'EverQuest Next' a visual level of depth that would have been hard to pull off nine years ago with 'EverQuest 2'.

These initial images offer a sample on the direction SoE is taking, with day/night cycle-influenced lighting and imaginative character designs. Notice the overhead camera angles in a couple of the screenshots; expect some vertical adventures in 'EverQuest Next'.
