EverQuest Next and Landmark to share same combat and emergent AI system

By Stephany Nunneley, Wednesday, 2 October 2013 20:04 GMT

EverQuest Next Landmark director Dave Georgeson has said the combat system in the game will contain the same mechanics as EverQuest Next. Speaking in an interview with Forbes, Georgeson said both will also share the emergent AI system built into EQ Next, only it may not be used in the same manner in Landmark. “EverQuest Next is more of a focused narrative with story arcs and rallying calls, [and] emergent AI pushing things around,” he said. “Landmark is very much an exploration in creativity and making things that are cool to show off to other players.”

Combat won’t be available in Landmark at launch but till be released soon afterward. EverQuest Next and the free-to-play Landmark have not been dated. Thanks, Massively.
