Apple Previews EverQuest
8:52 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
MMORPGs seem to be making headway onto the Mac scene this year, and one of the bigger titles soon to undergo beta testing is EverQuest. To give gamers a little more insight into the title, Apple has released a preview that takes a general look at the online world of Norrath.
One of the points the preview makes a note of is the pervasive online community that EQ has created for PC players. Not only do they adventure online, but they make friends, stage plays and protests, and even have online marriages. Richard Lawrence, Director of Sony Online Entertainment, suggests that those looking to make friends play a helper class such as a cleric, as resurrecting or healing a player at a critical time can go a long way towards making a good impression.
As the Mac version is coming out several years after the PC, it will also include several expansion packs, including Ruins of Kurnak, Scars of Velios, Planes of Power, and Shadows of Luclin. The fact that Mac users will be starting out fresh is also portrayed with a positive slant:
The development team at SOE put together a never-before-touched version of Norrath for you to explore. You and your friends will get the chance to start at first level and work your way up together. There will be plenty of quests to undertake, monsters to slay, and treasure to find, in addition to communities to forge.The rest of the preview has information on topics such as character races, classes, and beginning gameplay tips. Those interested in the full read can find it at Apple's site.
