Sony’s newest MMO project, EverQuest Next, was unveiled at Fan Faire over three years ago. Earlier this month we learned that EverQuest Next Landmark, a standalone companion, will allow EverQuest Next players to construct buildings and alter landscapes within the game in Minecraft-like fashion. Today Sony released the video below to demonstrate what this looks like.
Sony is advertising Next Landmark as an opportunity for EverQuest Next players to participate in the development of the game. While anybody can play around with the game, Sony will monitor submissions and choose a select few for inclusion in the actual EverQuest Next world. As seen in the video, the new Norrath will be a very malleable place.
We don’t know yet know EverQuest Next’s release date, but we do know that Next Landmark is set to launch this winter. Both titles are free-to-play, though little is known about Sony’s plans for monetization.
