No way on preorder. To many questions ATM. The only things we know at the moment are it uses the PS2 engine and someone said it's going to be sandbox.

they said sandbox about warz also, and we all know how that turned out. There is a real possibility that this could end up being a console version of WarZ with an Everquest skin on it.

Dumb question, but isn't Everquest Next free to play?

 

As in, download it the day it comes out and you're good to go? Unless you mean bonus type subscriptions for $5-10 a month or something. I was under the presumption that there isnt even a box price to pay like Guild Wars 2. Although if that was the case I wouldnt care, just assumed it was F2P download the day it comes out type deal.

SoE F2P games have all had a pre-order package that came with lots of goodies and beta keys etc. DP was the latest and it was 19.99 to 89.99 to pre-order goodies.

And ain't those who preordered DP for the tune of $90 happy with their decision, eh.

Oh. I'd go up to $20 I think. Depends how much goodies you get, I suppose. Not $60+ for a game I havent played though when its free to play, no.

 

I'm not really big on building houses and such in MMORPGs so if the goodies were mainly for that, I might not care unless it instantly got me into beta. But who knows, maybe EQN will get me into that type of thing

In SOE's past, you could pre-order up until the day previous to release.  IMO, that is a very generous amount of time to hear from honest previewers (not biased game sites like this one) and beta testers who have been fans of the EQ franchise.  There are still a few months to see how it will all really pan out.

 

Pre-ordering now?  Based on what?  The only thing we have are these silly crypic games Smed is playing with his potential customers.  That doesn't entice me:  it annoys me.  No way am I going to simply hand over $$ for a product I know nothing about, and have never even seen a snippet of in-game footage.

 

When beta begins and the reports start rolling in from the credible fansites, then I'll listen and make a decision based on real information, not hype.

Whats the difference between MMORPG/TTH seeing the game and you seeing the game, if you're seeing the same thing? What warrants as a "credible" fansite to you? One that agrees with your opinion?

 

Also, TTH has historically been pretty harsh towards SOE/Everquest, so the fact they're in nerd boners over EQN should prove as a credible sign. SOE hasnt been one to be big on advertising, so I highly doubt they paid off MMORPG.com or TTH to say good things about the game.

Seeing this is their flagship IP, I wouldn't be surprised if this was the only one of their games to have a sub fee and everything. Some barrier to entry wouldn't be bad. If it is free to play, I know I'll have more of my friends / family interested in it, so I guess it doesn't matter too much for me. If there's a sub option, I'll be using that anyways.

If you don't know the difference between someone else giving you an opinion, and you finding out for yourself, then..

 

Bill is notorious for shining SOE in an unnaturally positive light.  Read his interviews with Dave Georgeson over the last 3 years and you'll see what I mean.  This makes him a biased source of information, and thus he loses credibility for what information/opinions he brings to the table regarding SOE.

 

So that leaves us with TTH.  One person and their opinion.  Not only that, but they are under a shroud of silence so they can't discuss anything. 

 

I guess if you want to pre-order based on that wealth of information, hey, fill yer boots.  Its your money.

 

For myself, I'm going to wait.

Thats not SoE style. They have worked hard at a balance of getting people to play for free and give them just enough to get them to the point they can see what end game is like but just out of reach enough that you cant join till you pay 14.99 a month. It will be more of the same with EQN.

I agree here.  Their other MMO's are tiered, so I imagine EQN will be as well.  I didn't mind paying a sub as the sheer vastness of the game and its depth was well worth $15 a month, not to mention the 500 SC they'd give as a bonus every month.  While many people did choose the F2P option, I tried it for a day or two and I found there were enough limitations here and there to really give me incentive to just go for a Gold membership.

To me EQN is like the Xbox One and PS4 I don't have enough information to make an intelligent decision and I'm not gonna preorder based on the story being told by the people who want my money.

The EQ world is a lot of fun so just toss me a sweet Collectors Edition worth buying and I'm in for a little while at the very least.

Same boat here. We know basically nothing, aside from rumors and conjecture. After the reveal and subsequent media blitz, then I'll have a better idea of how truly interested I am in this game.

Wait and see is better than spend and see for me. Got burned once spending and seeing.  Made a decision to wait and see from then on. Now all you trusting souls who can afford to gamble that EQN will be both what they allude to and what you want - go for it. That means more sources of info, once info is available and the beta begins, for me to base my decision on. I have no problem waiting. Seems to me though that some of you get mad because people want to wait and see. Not sure of the logic of that. do with your money as you see fit and so will us cautious ones. peace.

Currently bored with MMO's.

Amazed at the results so far. Have people learned nothing after the recent debacles like SWTOR and GW2? To each his own but I would suggest that pre-orders come with a form stating "I realize I am pre-ordering with little to no information as to the final product. By signing this form, I forfeit the right to go to any gaming related forum and bitching when the product does not live to my overblown expectations".
