EverQuest Landmark is closing down next month

EverQuest Next could have been the MMO to make me love MMOs. I didn't have a World of Warcraft phase or a City of Heroes phase, or even much of an Ultima Online phase, so these big multiplayer worlds have always been a bit of a mystery to me. The idea of existing alongside hundreds of other people is exciting, but I'm more interested in…

MMOh, Awww: EverQuest Next Cancelled, “Wasn’t Fun”

EverQuest Next was one of the more interesting MMORPG ideas I've seen in a fair while. I dug the idea of introducing a touch of Minecraft with a world built in collaboration with fans, and destructible terrain letting players carve paths and find hidden places sounded more interesting than many MMO worlds. But... it's off. Developers Daybreak Game Company, the studio formerly known as Sony…

EverQuest Next Landmark Gets Name Change, Closed Beta

I always did think that EverQuest Next Landmark was kind of a clunky name. And, true story, I know plenty of people in the gaming industry - devs and journos alike - who don't understand that it's an entirely separate experience from EverQuest Next proper. So I suppose it only makes sense that SOE's decided to shave it down into to a more prim and…

EverQuest Next Landmark’s Insane Ambitions Video-ed

I have played EverQuest Next Landmark, and lo, it was akin to using Photoshop to┬ábirth worlds from my finger (and brain) tips. Also, a giant ice cream cone. For all of SOE's boasting, there's actually some awe-worthy power in the toolset, and that's not even all there is to the game. Landmark is a universe of exploration, combat, and survival that will constantly expand as…

I Will Never Be This Creative In EverQuest Next Landmark

My proudest Minecraft creation was a shack on top of a mountain. It had a single room, a bed, a chest and one glass wall that looked out across the world as far as the draw distance could see. It was a terrible little box but it was my terrible little box. I look at some of the architectural wonders and recreations that people make…

EverQuest Next Landmark Dev Diary Explains Minecraft

I knew roughly what SOE had planned for their new EverQuest game, but I was still surprised by how different it was when Adam broke the cardinal rule of Vegas by telling us about it. The first part, Landmark, is a free-to-play sandbox game built from voxels in which players can dig and build and design the world around them. The latest developer diary walks…

But Can I Craft A Mine? Everquest Next – Landmark

Talking to the monsters just isn't enough any more, things must be more complex. Gamers the world over cry-out for not only deeper interaction with their digital worlds but the ability to terraform them as well. Thus when earlier this month Sony Online Entertainment shocked the world by revealing Everquest Next might actually be relevant to the wider gaming community, its world-building utility Landmark was…

Cast Your Eye Buffs On EverQuest Next

Until very recently, if I'd walked up to someone and asked them if they were excited about the new EverQuest game, any positive response would have seen the authorities rush in. The Pod Person would then be gassed and caged, the area evacuated and nuked, and humanity would feel just a little bit more vulnerable. Even now, when I look in the mirror and someone…

Forging Worlds: Everquest Next – Landmark

Along with the first full reveal of the hugely exciting Everquest Next, Sonly Online Entertainment announced another title, Everquest Landmark. Quite how they've kept its existence a secret I don't know. If I'd been working on it, self-trumpet blower that I am, I'd have been shouting about it from the rooftops. To be released later this year, preceding Next, it's a construction and exploration game…
