Everquest 2 developers create new game

XatericXateric Member UncommonPosts: 30
I see that the developers from Everquest 2 and Everquest Next are creating a new game called Ashes of Creation and it will have the visions of games like EQ2, Vanguard etc. but set in todays graphics. The world will have full weather dynamics and ever changing environment. I cannot wait to try this game.

    "Refer and invite new players below, to receive 15% of their account purchases in game credits or cash back."

    Their referral program makes me nervous. I haven't read up on the game but by reading this I would say Pay to win?

    Or the Ashes forum here on this site.


    On hiatus from EVE Online since Dec 2016 - Screw off-grid PVE boosting changes

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Don't just play games, inhabit virtual worlds™

    I thought all the major players from EQ2 were at Daybreak or with Brad,there can't possibly be more than 1-3 at AOC studio.
    He is new here people,5 posts,of course he missed the previous site endorsements and not familiar with site.

    Anyhow @op,i had some mild hope for this game but after seeing more,i realized it is a cheap structure/design,similar to Lord British game SOTA.
    I do give the team credit because they "presented"the possibility of a good game,unlike Smedley who just came out and tried to sell us absolute rubbish and worse is this site actually tried to be a sellout and endorse that crap.
    Bottom line is that i feel the game has potential but will be a one/2 trick pony and not have the depth of a big studio game or the kind of depth i am looking for.

    The node idea is imo just going to be a real cheapo easy automated  system,that needs to be very robust to be any good.
    The combat looks fun as well the mob AI looks solid "from the little we have seen"but everything else that woudl make a great mmorpg ,we do not know.

    I feel the game could be good enough to at least keep an eye on but for myself,i do not like the cheap over world idea,that turns me right off.

    Maybe it's created by some people how once worked on EQ2, but not the creators.

    I missed the memo on this game also but so weary about the next great game.  When it launches, when it launches....

    everquest 2 developers create new game and it looks like crap. 

    fixed it for you.
  • NanfoodleNanfoodle Member EpicPosts: 7,597
    I have yet to hear what the combat is like in this game. Tab target, action, trinity, generic all classes are dps crap? Their web page says nothing factual. Just generalized comments. We need Bill to get them to start talking lol

    This may be a good sign that all the Asian cash shop crap is on the way out, but will have to wait and see.


    Also I'm not crazy about the ever changing world idea.  THIS ALWAYS SOUNDS GOOD ON PAPER.

    its probably the only MMORPG I'm willing to try out



    Hopefully it makes it to the point where you will be able to try it out as many MMOs die in development.

    At least they are saying the whole purpose of the game is focus on it being non pay to win.


    The guy that started the company did so because he was sick of all the new games being pay to win and focused on pvp with very little pve. For me this sounds great....

    I've not seen more than a few screen shots and a gif but it already looks like yet another "innovative" twitch mmo. I can barely walk without stumbling over those.

    The game has been in development for awhile, but it goes up on kickstarter in a few days.

    Any mmorpg that has overhype/advertising before released already fails in my book. Release the game first, and then show how good your game is with gameplay preview.

    I'm developing a product now I think millions will enjoy. But I won't talk about it until it's DONE.

    That is true....but I like the way these guys are approaching it. All I know is there are a lot of people starving for a good MMORPG.

    Pretty much! There is a good reason that companies generally announce games that are going to be out within the next calendar year. People just don't have the atten...
