EverQuest II Date

Sony Online Entertainment's Everquest(R) II Shipping November 8th (thanks Frans) is the press release announcing the official release date for the MMORPG sequel. Here's the deal on pricing:
EverQuest II comes in three versions, all of which include a 30-day subscription (excluding SOE All Access subscriptions) to the game's online world. The CD version and DVD versions of the game carry an SRP of $49.99 and include the game, an in-game item and an in-box item.

Limited quantities of the EverQuest II Collector's Edition (DVD) are available at an SRP of $89.99. The Collector's Edition includes a number of in-game items, including "paintings" of EverQuest II scenery to be hung on the walls of a player's house, magical talking statues of Antonia and Lucan (voiced by Hollywood talent Heather Graham and Christopher Lee), and an exclusive pet baby dragon. The Collector's Edition also includes an exclusive art book, bonus DVD with trailers, gameplay videos and behind-the-scenes footage, a soundtrack CD, a collector's coin with a velvet pouch, a cloth map of Norrath, and two posters.

EverQuest II carries a monthly subscription fee of $14.99 for continuing access to the game world. Players can subscribe using a credit card, or purchase SOE 30-day and 90-day Game Cards, which open the new world of Norrath to those who choose not to use a credit card.

Don't be fooled by people that EQ2 looks better in action than it does on screenshots. It does not. Don't get me wrong, the game has some really nice and sometimes amazing graphics, but the artwork in the different aspects of the game does not match. The terrain is simplistic and barren even with flora turned on. The architecture can be amazingly detailed but so sterile. The humanoid characters and MOBs look freakish and more like mannequins with unnatural faces and strange skin tones. (Definitely in the uncanny valley) The hair styles are plain ugly. Some of the monsters do look very detailed and actually scary, but for the most part, they move like zombies or robots and they look so out of place in their habitats. Anyone who's played has seen just how stupid the player characters look; same as giants, gnolls, lizard men, skeletons. I'm serious... they're laughable. None of the art styles seem to mesh or go together, at all. Look at the screenshots people posted above and you'll see what I mean.

EQ2 is a lot slower paced game than WoW. Honestly, I wish WoW was a little slower paced and a little bit deeper like EQ2. Like many people have said, EQ2 is more for the "hardcore" gamer and WoW is more for the "casual" gamer. I consider myself somewhere in between.

MyRealName, you must be really new to RPGs if you think aggro, nuking, and tanking were invented, somehow, by EQ.
