The same tools used by SOE to build EverQuest Next will be available for fans to play with.
This winter, Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) will introduce EverQuest Next Landmark (Landmark). Essentially, Landmark will combine the powerful and intuitive building tools SOE is using to create the fully destructible world of EQN with all of the social functionality expected from a modern MMO.
The game will feature huge persistent worlds that each support thousands of other players and varied terrain inspired by the environments of EQN. Most importantly, Landmark will provide anyone who wants to participate with the opportunity to actually build structures, and eventually create other types of content, to be considered for inclusion in EQN. Landmark will enable players to:
Gamers can build highly detailed structures with powerful and intuitive tools. Quickly design complex projects or collaborate with friends to undertake massive shared builds. Lay claim to and control specific areas of huge persistent worlds. Players can share your imagination with friends.
Landmark's persistent servers will enable players to interact with and experience the collective imagination of thousands of players in a unique shared world. Players will have compelling reasons to explore and interact with others. They will congregate at crafting hubs, build design templates to share and trade, and journey across the world to collect the resources required to build and craft.
