SOE previously stated that the alpha for EverQuest Next: Landmark would begin by the end of this month. Keeping true to their word and riding it down to the wire, SOE today announced at its community event in San Diego that the Landmark beta will officially get underway later today.
This morning, at a community event hosted at its San Diego campus, Sony Online Entertainment announced Alpha for the highly-anticipated EverQuest Next Landmark will begin this evening. As players and developers come together to celebrate major milestones across the entire EverQuest game franchise, teams are hard at work completing the final tasks in the hours before Alpha is officially underway.
In EverQuest Next Landmark, players are invited into a vast online world to explore unique continents, to use powerful building tools to bring their dreams to life, and to adventure with close friends and allies into undiscovered territory.
Later today, we will begin the Alpha for EverQuest Next Landmark and open up the game to our most committed and passionate players, said Dave Georgeson, Director of Development for the EverQuest franchise. This is the earliest point in the development process that weve ever let players into a game. We are empowering these players to do much more than test the game for bugs. For the first time, our players can join alongside us as part of the development team. They will have a significant voice in how the final game takes shape.
If youve picked up a copy of one of the EverQuest Next: Landmark founders packs, keep your eyes locked on your inboxes and get your building tools ready.
