I'd just like to ask whether it is worth getting Everquest 2.. I know I may be a little late since the game came out awhile back, But i've been into alot of other games.. I thought I should either check this game or Lineage :o


Any suggestions appreciated :D!

Thanks,
Kc

I'm not here to tell you EQ2 is the game to play or not all I can say is that I purchased the game before its original release and many parts of the game were incomplete not to mention the many disapointments of finding a particular quest broken and perhaps worst of all was getting your character's abilities nerfed. With all that said I can tell you that the game now seems for the most part very solid and stable as compared to the original version. I'd recommend it to anyone as most newbie areas will be uncamped and you'll be able to progress very quickly especially if you follow some of the quick guides you find in many forums.

enjoy,

Tarakan1

I would definatly recomend the game, totaly worth it. There are thousands of quests, and decent pvp. The level grind isnt that bad, and there are a hell of a lot of things to do.

Blujeans, i suggest you think about getting the Station Access account. Its a little more money per month, but you get access A LOT more games like Starwars Galaxies, Matrix Online, EQ2, EQ1, and Vanguard when it comes out.

ive heard nothing about vanguard being included with station access, or for that matter having anything to do with SoE. It doesnt seem too logical actualy since Vanguard is backed by Micro$oft, sony's major rivel. Could you put up a link to where you heard of it beign included in station access?

VANGUARD: SAGA OF HEROES FINDS A NEW HOME
- Sigil Games Online and Sony Online Entertainment In Talks To Co-Publish Sigil’s Ground-Breaking New Game -

May 5, 2006 – Carlsbad & San Diego, CA – Sigil Games Online and Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE), a global leader in the online games industry, today announced that Sigil is working with Microsoft Game Studios on an arrangement to acquire the rights to its highly anticipated massively multiplayer online (MMO) game, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. These efforts have resulted in a tentative agreement for Vanguard to be co-published by both Sigil Games Online and SOE. All three companies will be showing the game at the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) as they work closely together for a successful transition. Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is scheduled to launch this winter.

“As the development process is ongoing and constantly shifting, it became clear that MGS and Sigil had varying visions and direction for the title’s development,” said Brad McQuaid, CEO of Sigil Games Online. “In the best interest of Vanguard, it was decided that we would buy back the publishing rights from Microsoft.”

As co-publisher of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, Sigil assumes greater control of marketing and PR, while maintaining responsibility for game development, community relations, media relations, customer support, and quality assurance. Under the terms of the agreement, SOE will provide distribution, marketing, hosting and back-end support -- including billing and technical support -- for the game. Additionally, SOE is tentatively planning on adding Vanguard, upon its release,to SOE’s Station Access™ subscription plan. Station Access allows players to enjoy all of SOE’s MMO titles for one low monthly price.

“We are very excited to be working with so many old friends at Sigil,” said John Smedley, president, Sony Online Entertainment. “Vanguard looks beautiful and has an incredibly rich game world. It’s the type of game that will appeal directly to SOE’s hundreds of thousands of players and should fit in perfectly with the current line-up of games available in Station Access.”

”This decision was made mutually by Sigil and Microsoft, in the best interest of the long-term goals for the title,” said Phil Spencer, General Manager at Microsoft Game Studios. “As a key Windows development partner, we will continue to work with Sigil to ensure Vanguard’s ongoing success.”

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is the next generation of massively multiplayer online games. The journey takes place in the fantasy setting of Telon, a vast and ancient world of magic, intrigue and adventure. Facing the challenges of a war torn world, the diverse people here struggle to rebuild their once great civilizations. A fragile alliance has been struck, with the lands set upon by invading forces, the races must band together to survive.

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is currently in a closed beta phase. The game will remain available via Fileplanet for existing beta testers during the transition to SOE. New information will be sent out to testers as the changeover occurs.

Well, we are also publishing Gods and Heroes with Perpetual. We love working with extremely talented creative people. We are a Publisher as well as a developer of games.. there's nothing odd at all about working with very talented companies like Sigil and Perpetual to help them bring their great games to market. In the case of Vanguard, it's also planned to be a part of our Station Access plan when it's released...which lets people play any game they want. We're happy if they are playing any SOE related product. That's better than the alternative IMO Smed

Read it again. Sigil bought back the rights from Microsoft and went with SOE instead.
