EverQuest Next Landmark
Today, Sony Online Entertainment announced that EverQuest Next Landmark is moving out of alpha and into closed beta.
EverQuest Next Landmark takes a drastic step away from traditional MMO gameplay elements, many that were at least in part established by the original EverQuest, and moves closer to something with the creativity aspects of Minecraft.

Landmark Closed Beta Launches Today
Today, Sony Online Entertainment announced that Landmark has transitioned from its Alpha stage into Closed Beta. Coming off a successful Alpha, the team is ready to open Landmark for more players, more discoveries and more creativity.
"Alpha was an extraordinary time where the players blew us away with their creations at every turn," said Dave Georgeson, Director of Development for the EverQuest franchise. "Time and time again, players are discovering and building things with our tools in ways that we didn't even know were possible ... we simply cannot wait to see how Landmark evolves with the start of Closed Beta."
Landmark enables players to construct their wildest dreams and find their own path, with some of the most intuitive building and content creation tools ever offered in an online game. Landmark will be an online game unlike any that has come before - players will gain fame, acclaim, and even fortune based on the things they discover, build, and create.
