Everquest Designer Brad McQuaid Rejoins Vanguard Team
Vanguard fans will be heartened by the news, spotted by Massively, that veteran MMO developer Brad McQuaid has rejoined SOE to work on Vanguard as it prepares to become free-to-play. In a short interview with the game‘s official site, McQuaid dished on his experience in the industry at large and in particular his experience in the world of Telon.
F2P is a growing trend in the MMO genre, even for venerable titles like Vanguard, which will receive its first content update in some time when the big change-over happens later this month. Considering the success enjoyed by higher-profile competitors like Lord of the Rings Online after making the switch, Vanguard devotees have reason for optimism.
