Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

Oooo, it's pretty...

In honor of the upcoming EverQuest Next reveal, I've decided that this week the Video of the Day series will be dedicated to all things EQ.

This fan-made video by hallatore gives you an idea of the engine's capabilities. Can you imagine South Ro rendered like this? The thought gives me goosebumps.

In this video, we see some behind-the-scenes demos of the engine's amazing capabilities:

Makes you want to see that EQ Next reveal now, doesn't it? (Here are a few things to do while you're waiting.) Keep your eyes on EQ Hammer's SOE Live Event Center for all the breaking news!
