There’s a difference between EverQuest Next and EverQuest Next Landmark? Surprisingly, yes; there’s a stark fundamental difference between the two. Even SOE has taken notice to the audience confusion between the two titles. In response, there has been a video released explaining Landmark’s unique characteristics.

EverQuest Next Landmark will be an expansive, highly customizable sandbox. Players will able explore, collect items, make items, and build in the world of Norrath. What can you build? Whatever your imagination wants. Landmark is focused on carving and shaping the world, and the players are given the keys.

In the video, these intuitive building tools are showcased through speed-building. You can build towers and arches in minutes and cover the landscape with your creations. It’s going to be difficult to decide between creating a gleaming castle or a damp subterranean fortress nicknamed “Camp Sunshine”.

Watch the video below to see the building in action, and put away those blueprints because the alpha will begin sometime in February next year.

    This sounds just like another game I know. Minecraft anyone?

    Wow, That is Great

    I wonder how many micro-transactions those will take to build. They can charge per square meter…definitely something SOE would do.

    Just make sure that there is a first person please, That’s all I’m really asking for. Just have an option for that, so that some people would be able to change the setting if they want to, not because they have to.

    I know the difference between the two, but this post really does not explain them well enough for others, it just tells them what landmark is..without explaining in the slightest the differences..

    • Altaijr on December 11, 2013

      What is highlighted in Landmark, in this article, is not available in the MMORPG. That is ample to know.

      “Landmark is focused on carving and shaping the world, and the players are given the keys.”

    If you can’t tell the difference between the two you must be a retard!

    1990sgame you’re so stupid… 2005 games are far from looking like EQ Next Landmark. BY REALLY REALLY FAR. You obviously don’t know shit about games graphics and in the first place graphics don’t make a good game.

  8. LOL@1990sgame on December 9, 2013

    Both of these are 2005 looking games at best, this is the era of next-gen gaming these fall far short… waste your money if you want. Living in the past.

    • Dzonatan on December 9, 2013

      When will this new generation ever learn that graphics do not define a good game.

      Take a look at minecraft, the game is arguably early PS1 graphic standard. Was it a “waste of money”? Only if you can derive enjoyment from eye candy light show spectacle, at which point you should probably be more into movies or real life rather that games since they always had next gen fully realistic graphics if you know what I mean.

      God! I feel like Crysis opened a pandora box of graphic whoring.

    • Karnaij on December 10, 2013

      How is this not next gen? We had minecraft where we use blocks now its a real world with all kinds of shapes I want to see you even come close to creating something better then this… this is next gen but not for the types of games you are talking about… it will take a while for games to be made with top end graphics because the ones with that seem to be failing anyways… look at Tera.. It has one of the best dated pc graphic systems for mmorpg’s but it is going down hill

    • Bic Boi on December 10, 2013

      Hey 1990sgame, how about you go back to your Call of Duty crap with its same game engine and barely changed formula since Modern Warfare. Plebeian scum.

  9. NobleNerd on December 9, 2013

    If they can actually do what they are claiming in these videos, then I will be a very happy gamer.

    BUT my pappy always says “If it sounds to good to be true, shoot it!” LOL

    Seriously I hope they can produce what they have boldly proclaimed.

  10. Summer on December 9, 2013

    EverGuest? Tee-hee 😛

    Anyway they maybe should have made the names stand out from each other a little more. Most people who look into it will know the difference but it still is going to confuse a large number of them…

    • spunkify Author on December 9, 2013

      Good catch!
      They should have definitely named is something different, perhaps Voxel Everquest.

      • Seth on December 10, 2013

        Or Minequest, or Evercraft

    • Altaijr on December 10, 2013

      If Landmark is an extension, or expansion, of EverQuest Next, the current name is alright. However, if it is not then what you are suggesting is very right. What truly confused the people is not the name but rather the revealed information; there isn’t any major distinctive characteristics, and unless you are a die-hard fan, you wouldn’t be able to notice it. Furthermore, almost released to the fans, although in development stage, SOE has primarly focused on Landmark, leaving the MMORPG in dark.

      What we truly know is only the entrails of Landmark, that hints the possible MMORPG; hence the confusion.
