EverQuest Next Landmark paid alpha launches

EverQuest Next Landmark SOE

While EverQuest Next, with its wandering AI and player-built cities, is still months away from release, at the earliest some time in 2015, EverQuest Next Landmark’s alpha, the Minecraft-like offshoot, is available to play now. For a fee.

Buying a $60 Founder’s Pack will net you early access to the soon-to-be free-to-play MMO.

The first release of Landmark will let you build and craft architectural creations to show off to other players but there won’t be any form of combat. That’s for a later update. It should set you back at least nine hours to gather all the materials to craft all the buildings on offer in Landmark.

Being an alpha, there will be character wipes. Though you can save your creations and redeploy them as soon as a server wipe has passed. Getting you back up to scratch with your pre-wipe state pretty quickly.

We’ll see a lot of the game in action soon as the NDA will be lifted on Monday:

SOE plan to move to the next stage of Landmark’s development at the end of March.

It's really really really really really really (Written without the use of Copy'n'paste) good. :) I was excited for it before it launched, and having played around 15 hours so far, I must say. It is really good. :)

With all the expected issues I haven't had a lot of time to really get into it but when it has been working I've been liking it. Waiting in a 18 minute queue to log back in right now =)

60 bucks for an alpha of a F2P game is a bit much for me for now. I'm still interested, however. :)

Was really thinking of dropping the $60 on this but live in the country and only get a shitty 7mb/s connection.
