There's an EverQuest: Shadows of Luclin Preview
based on what they saw of the upcoming EQ expansion pack at
this year's ECTS. Describing the add-on, they point out that: "Featuring an
all-new graphics engine, new player character models, and a host of upgrades,
the expansion was described as effectively 'EverQuest 1.5.'" They go into
the new graphics, the factions and zones the expansion will feature, what's
being done to improve framerates and more. They also managed to corner both Jeff
Butler, producer of EQ Live and Shadows of Luclin, and Brad McQuaid, VP of
premium games at Sony Online to discuss the upcoming release. Topics of the
Q&A include the potential lifespan of EverQuest, what is offered in the new
expansion, some detail on the new horses ("Frau Blucher!"
new playable race, engine improvements, and more.
