Minecraft meets Norrath: Pick up your tools, start digging and join your friends. Create your own virtual world the way you have always envisioned it. As long as your creation fits the overall lore of the EverQuest universe, anything goes.
The virtual world of Norrath is full of memorable cities, adventure zones and dungeons. Players from all over the world have wandered through the swamps of Feerrott, visited the heights of Kelethin or entered the Planes of Power. Up until now, there has never been a game in the popular franchise that allowed heroes to shape their virtual universe into a world of their own. EverQuest Next Landmark will change just that, by giving players the right tools to change the landscape and share their creations with others. Whether you end up recreating old classics or feel like bringing your own vision to life: Everything that you bring into being in this free-to-play title can be shared with your strangers, allied players and even the developers.
While Landmark will always be connected to EverQuest Next proper, it also classifies as a standalone game. Build your own empire by destroying your surroundings, collecting resources and trading materials with others. Crafting stations can be found throughout the world. Mounts and wizard spires can be used as a means of transport through various continents and will ultimately save you a lot of time, not to mention footwork. Regular tournaments will be held once Landmark goes live, so you better know your way around Norrath before then. The world is your oyster.
When you find a spot that you would like to work on, put down your flag and set up camp. This keeps unwanted guests out of your territory and from messing with your creation. You can always welcome other players onto your building site by sending them an invitation. Together, you can join creative forces and create unique templates to impress rival guilds. According to Sony Online Entertainment, you will be able to bring your Landmark character over to EverQuest Next once the free-to-play MMORPG launches.
