EverQuest Next Requires 64-bit OS

Dave Georgeson tweets a "news flash" that SOE's upcoming MMORPG remake EverQuest Next will not support 32-bit operating systems: "Another News Flash: Landmark is going to have to be a 64-bit OS game *only*. We are going to be unable to support 32-bit OS as we had hoped." Thanks GameInformer.

You do know that there is a 64-bit version XP Pro available? So XP users can still play this game when it comes out
I did know that, but I have no idea if they represent 1, 5, 10, or 50% of the installed XP base. If I had to guess, I'd guess under 10%.

From what I'd heard a few years ago, it was buggy as fuck and no one used it.

edit: There's also a 32 bit version of 7, but no one uses that, either.


I used WinXP 64 for a while. It was, indeed, awful. That may have mostly been the state of the 64-bit drivers, though.

Win7 32 actually makes up a disappointingly large number of fresh installs on new computers. It's more common than you think.
