The concern for me is that this will be somewhat of a bridge title... One of SOE's most successful games is/was free realms, I am hoping they are not trying to capture that audience and keep the gameplay decently complex at it's core.

 

The last thing we need is some overly moderated game because the parents of today are so worried about the delicate sensibilities of their precious unique snowflakes.

What are your other Hobbies?

Gaming is Dirt Cheap compared to this...

The art style is terrible, and that's being nice. If I wanted to live in this kind of world I would go sit in a Toys-R'US store.

I have no idea how anyone will even be fearful in a world that looks like hello kitty online. I am shocked at what they did with the EQ Franchise. It's almost hilarious how incompetence at SoE by specific individuals seems to ruin whole projects every time for the whole team. Seems like a common theme for them.

That's likely what they're doing, they're catering the EQ universe to their younger demographic. They have already stated the game will be very accessible and not hardcore.

Exactly the opposite for me, SOE has finally regained their credibility as a company that can deliver an MMORPG, I guess you win some and you lose some.

RAVEN!!! Please tell me where the character in your sig comes from. I've been asking you for years now!! You're killing me man!

In my 40's and I love the way it looks, not sure about this younger gamer claim...

Same here, also 40+. I said it before, I am not sold on the lion-look but I DID like the human female model. And the concept art for the dark elves looks good. I used to play a dark elf SK, so it would be great I could recreate her :)

Developers if do this kind of graphic and think they will have an AAA mmo they are wrong 

 

WOW was the only one with this cartoony graphic that have a big success ,but this is an old game ,new AAA mmos should look more real 

List a financially succesful MMORPG with realistic graphics, smooth animation and reactive gameplay.

TSW, LoTRo, AoC. :)

Is it me or was LOTR not realistic looking? Slightly styled? AoC don't think it counts as a successful game or does it? TSW has realistic graphics? I though they were horror/gothic styled?

 

I agree - 

LoTRO can hardly be called realistic.

LOTRO: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-otlxByChNJk/TdC75K94aqI/AAAAAAAAADs/Ptt3gmeWvbA/s1600/LotRO_BreeLand.jpg

AoC is very very realistic, but bled red for years till it finally went F2P and still can't be called a huge success.

 EQ1 and EQ2 were not realistic. I am unsure why realism = everquest in many people's minds, I didn't find it to be realistic in the modeling at all. 

EQ2: http://i930.photobucket.com/albums/ad147/Eq2Fin2010/cchumanfemjpg.jpg

TSW is a different genre, not fantasy-based. And again, fairly "cartoony" - the only difference being really is more detail to the eyes and alot more shading. That could very likely be achieved in character creation on EQN - we just don't know at this point if the model we saw was representative or an example.

I'm 29 in a few weeks :P Overall I think the art style is alright. The lion is the only thing the bugged me as that totally looked like the cheetos mascot guy or a bit lion king.... the human female looked great. I wasn't expecting this much stylized graphics, but I do think it will be good for years to come.

Yes I agreee the features of the lion were a bit much, I think the reason behind that was the ability for facial expression. Hope the rest of the models follow the human female look.

I think I'm looking at it from a different way. Comparatively, this is realistic , and the Warrior here is not. I think the old timers like myself were looking forward to Everquest with a wonderful face lift and we got something completely different. Not a total loss by any means, but disappointing for now and we will grow into it I guess. :)

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

I bet they change their artistic style once Disney finds out that literally every character has been highjacked and copied.Look up Dragon's Lair one of the first avatar games back in 1983. There's not a lot of difference. and that's sad.

I never understood why people play a fantasy game to escape reality, only to try to shoe horn reality back in.

Well keep in mind that it would be unlikely for the lion skin to be the only look available for him. You'll probably have tiger, white tiger, cheetah, panthar and all other big cats as an option.

Also, anyone hope that the horns on Dark Elves are optional? Would hate if you HAD to have them personally.

 All three of which were forced to go f2p shortly after launch, thats without even bringing up the fact that EQN is voxel based

And those games struggles has nothing to do with their  graphics.

 

A mix of reaslitic and stylized would have been fine,like Planetside 2..

 

instead they had to rip characters out of Disney Pixar,which looks horrible.The characters dont even look like they belong in such a world..

 

Its like seeing Mickey Mouse in cartoon form walking down the street.

You're twisting their words around. They said they didn't want it to be JUST hardcore, which honestly would be just as bad if it were just casual. MMO's need a lot of players, and if you pick and choose which demographics get to have fun and which ones don't you're setting yourself up for failure. It doesn't mean they won't have things in the game for hardcore players to do, it just means that it won't be the only way to have any real fun is if you play 6-10 hours a day.

Although I must admit I was surprised when I first saw the art style, I quickly fell in love with it. I think it looks AMAZING... In my opinion it has some of the best graphics I've ever seen in a MMORPG. I also really liked the way the Kerran looked... and sounded! I don't get the haters saying it looks terrible... What were you expecting? virtual reality? Yeah that would be awesome but the tech isn't quite there yet... hate to burst your bubble. This art style will allow EQN to age gracefully like WoW has over all these years... if it went for realism it would look like crap in a couple years. Plus... like others have mentioned it looks awesome with the emotes.

I think most people that are hating on this style are those that are already feeling insecure about playing computer games at their age... they don't want to tell people they are playing something that might resemble a Pixar movie. Get over it... it looks great, and we know damn well all of you complainers will be the first ones playing it on release... lol.

LOL at Pixar movie. This game only wishes it looked something close to Pixar. If the characters actually looked like Pixar characters rather than a flat 2d conceptual art piece I might  reconsider it. I was hoping for characters that looked better than their wallpaper..characters that looked better that EQ1s advertisement characters. They don't even look as good as their wallpapers..that makes me sad.

Flat? Hmmm... did you watch the same videos? I'm not sure where you're drawing that conclusion from...

Having had a day to think about it, I'm not overly concerned with the character models in themselves.  But that doesn't mean I don't think there's a problem with the art design.

So far, I've seen landscape, a female human and a male Kerran.   I'm not entirely sure that the three had the same art designer at all.   The Kerran, as has been pointed out many times, has a semi-Disney look to it, particularly the face.  I'd say it's snout is a bit too 'fat'.   The human looks far more like an anime version of a female.  The face is a bit round, prominent but not overly large eyes and the emotes seem very much overdone.   But the landscape looks far more realistic (at least, the above-ground landscape).  Trees look right, and the desert rocks look like desert rocks.   Still, I'm having a difficult time meshing the color pallets of these 3 elements into a coherent 'big picture' style.   It almost looks like the 3 elements we have been shown are from 3 different graphics studios.  They are bordering on not 'looking' like they belong in the same game.

Maybe there's more in-game views that I've missed in the glut of threads on the forums today.   I'd really like to see a selection of Kerran (and especially human) faces, bodies, hair styles before I would be able to jump into the 'bad art design' category.

Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

Immersion is why. If I were to invent a game that was not semi realistic I would go ahead and just develop sharks with lazer beams attached to their heads, and shoot everything automatically by pressing the 3 button. I could even be watching tv while I level without even playing.

Yes, it is a fantasy game that sets itself from my real life, but I want a bit of common sense built in. This is not what I consider even close to my expectations of immersion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyKpQH5TxVE (At least not what I expect from the EQ franchise) This needs to be attached to the warrior. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fy3hUzgkdd8
