It was an inevitability, but Sony Online Entertainment has confirmed that EverQuest Next will indeed be coming to PlayStation 4 in the future. EverQuest franchise director Dave Georgeson recently spoke about some of the features that this version of the MMORPG will contain, while also describing new voice chat integration that will be hitting EverQuest Next Landmark in the near future.

"Reaching out to other people through social media... it's a given, it'll be in Next," Georgeson told Polygon. He also added that the PS4 version of EQN would support Twitch, Facebook, and Twitter, in order to make sharing content with friends easier.

Meanwhile, EverQuest Next Landmark is slated to receive voice chat support, shortly before it hits closed beta. The aim is to allow voice chat to help friends cooperatively build new structures. They can also grant permission to build on each other's land claims, which is a new feature that was introduced earlier this month.

For more on what's coming to the EverQuest franchise during the ongoing Year of Everquest, including some new updates for the original EverQuest and EverQuest 2, check out the video below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      If you have a PS+ sub you could seriously get by as a casual gamer on PS4 without necessarily having to purchase any games. DCUO, Planetside 2, EQnext, and all the PS+ games.

      This is the last MMO I'm going to pay attention to for quite some time. MMOs have never been able to really draw me in. the combination of dull combat, a slow start, generic aesthetics and constant poorly implemented narrative drive me away each time.
