Explanation of EQNext Landmark

If you are a fan of the EverQuest franchise, you will absolutely love what is about to happen in the very near future. Though EverquestNext, the upcoming free to play online MMO, doesn’t yet have an official release date, fans of the series are hungry for any and all information they can get their hands on. That includes information on how you…yes, you…can help develop the game. This brings us to EverquestNext Landmark, the one of a kind opportunity to get in on the action before EverquestNext is even introduced.

What is EverquestNext Landmark?

eqnextlandmarkEverquestNext Landmark is sort of like a pre-cursor to the release of the EverquestNext game. In the game, you will be able to design and manage objects, buildings and more. These items may be used in the future by the developers and be added to EverquestNext!

EQN Landmark Alpha will be launching on or before February 28th, 2014, and you will have a chance, by picking up a Founder’s Pack on the official website, to participate. However, the EQN Landmark and Main EQN release date are still unknown. In order to get access to EQN Landmark, you will need to buy one of the three different founders packs. These packs, ranging from $19.99 to $99.99 will not only allow you to enter the EQN Landmark world; you can also get access to a number of features. Only two of the packs will allow you access on the 28th, but by the end of March, no matter what pack you buy, you can play inside this world.

Known Features of EverquestNext Landmark?

Now that you know a bit about what you can expect from EQN Landmark, you might be interested in some of the features. EQN Landmark is all about building, and there is really no limit to what you can build, besides your imagination, of course. Landmark is also huge, according to developers, so you will have the chance to look around, lay claim to land, gather materials and make your mark on the EQN world. Through a series of contests, for instance, your own structures and designs might be put in EverquestNext on a permanent basis.

There are materials, secrets and gear scattered throughout Landmark that you can get your hands on and you can use these items to make new in-game objects. In fact, you can even make real money by selling them to other players in Player Studio.

EQN Landmark is just a small part of the greater EverquestNext world, the possible biggest sandbox MMO, and it is the world that will serve as a reflection of your own imagination. If you have ever had the desire to design and play in your own world, EQN Landmark will be the perfect game for you.

EverQuest Next to be the Biggest Sandbox MMO Ever?

The next installment in the EverQuest franchise, accurately titled EverQuest Next, is reportedly the biggest sandbox MMO ever made. Attempting to clean the disappointing EverQuest II smudge from their record, which had nothing but linear gameplay, Sony Online Entertainment is making an epic open-ended world where you can choose to do what ever you want. That’s right, you are no longer required to grind your levels in the same boring old sewers that everyone else is fighting for creeps in. In fact, there aren’t even levels. You will be able to choose from 40 different classes. You will have the option to customize your character anyway you like with the variety of skills that you can mix and mash up.

EverQuest Next is offering gamer’s destruction on a large scale. The engine is not just massive, but its world is ever changing due to buildings and landscapes that are able to be destroyed. So, if you want to take that big, beautiful rolling plain with livestock grazing in it into a crater and a mushroom cloud, you will have the option! If destruction isn’t your thing, you can also use a program called EverQuest Landmark which will allow you to create objects and buildings within the game the same way the developers did the first time around.

The game is also boasting some heightened NPC intelligence, which I’m sure we have all seen hyped in games in the past and never quite meets expectations. We can only hope that the developers of EverQuest Next have taken that into consideration and have made what little grind there may be in this game a little more interesting than in its predecessors.

The developers at SOE are striving to make a game that changed the world the same way the first EverQuest did.
