EverQuest Next isn’t the only game Sony Online Entertainment is promoting this weekend, as the company also announced that the official release of Dragon’s Prophet in North America and Europe will be on Sept. 18.
So what’s the difference between “launch” and “open beta”? How about the Frontier System, a cross-server PvP format that will be rolled out for next month’s launch. According to the press release:
The Frontier System will allow players to partake in alliance siege matches featuring multiple guilds, as they fight for control of citadels in Auratia. Once they are in command, players will have to continuously upkeep their kingdom and defend the city walls from enemy guilds.
The launch will also coincide with the release of a bunch of new content, including a new leveling zone and four new dungeons, which we got to preview in a livestream a few weeks ago.
