EverQuest Next To Support Oculus Rift

And maybe other virtual reality platforms.

Posted By | On 04th, Feb. 2014

 

In a recent AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit, the president of Sony Online Entertainment, John Smedley announced that, with the upcoming release of EverQuest Next, the game will include support for virtual reality gaming software Oculus Rift because, “it’s really damn cool and programmers love that stuff.” As of now EverQuest Next is still in development.

In response to Smedly’s statement on Reddit, another user asked about the potential for EverQuest Next compatibility with other virtual reality systems that may be in competition with Oculus Rift, such as Virtuix Omni and the STEM System from Sixense. Smedly did not confirm or deny whether either will be compatible with the game, but did say, “Hearing good things about 2 competitors… one of which actually comes from Sony.”

So while it has not been confirmed that EverQuest Next will include virtual reality support beyond Oculus Rift, it is clear that the prevalence of virtual reality gaming is beginning to spread. It’s an exciting new frontier filled with possibility.
