    Default Everquest Next Landmark Alpha launches tonight! 1/31/2014

    As of tonight (1/31/2014) the much anticipated alpha for Everquest Next: Landmark will be available to everyone who purchased Trailblazer status or Explorer status!

    It's here! Sandbox fans have been waiting with bated breath for EverQuest Next Landmark's alpha announcement, and now we finally have it: EQNL will open those alpha doors tonight! Players who purchased the appropriate level of Founder's Pack (Trailblazer or Explorer) will receive a link via email with instructions on downloading and getting into this testing phase, which is touted as less testing and more interacting with the devs to help direct the actual development of the game. Director of Development Dave Georgeson stated:
    Later today, we will begin the Alpha for EverQuest Next Landmark and open up the game to our most committed and passionate players. This is the earliest point in the development process that we've 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."
    Founders should be on the lookout for their golden ticket... er, email... that will enable them to dive into the new sandbox and get building. Those who don't currently own a founder's pack can still purchase one throughout the alpha stage; in fact, SOE's John Smedley promises that the studio "will offer a full refund to anyone not satisfied with the Alpha." And in case you were wondering, yes, this alpha is under strict NDA. While waiting, check out the latest Landmark screens in the gallery below.

    As well as this, Jhon Smedley has announced that anyone not satisfied with the Alpha has the option of having a full refund, very kind of them. You are also still able to drop the sixty dollars and get in with the Explorers pack, or show some serious patronage and drop the full hundred for the Trailblazer.

    Please remember that the Alpha is under a strict NDA, so keep the info to yo seeeelfs

    smexy... This... Actually I don't know. I kinda die a little inside every time I play an Everquest clone, but maybe this one will be awesome!! EQ2 was a HUGE improvement over EQ1, so EQ Next should be worth buying. What's the payment-model? (Thank you, my Google-hamster.)

    Both Everquest Next and Landmark are going meant to be Free to Play on release, but to get into this Alpha and i expect the Alpha for the roleplaying game its self it'll cost you 60$. You can wait for closed beta i suspect and get in for free, though.

    Hmm, very on the fence about it.

    There's a handful going at any given time. Just search for the game.

    SOE developers said they wont ban for streaming the game though, according to the streamers, I haven't looked into it myself.

    They put an NDA on it, so i can't imagine they're 100% alright with the streaming o-o

    At the moment, I believe it's mostly about running around mining minerals and chopping down woods. Good luck to everyone trying to stake a claim in the world. Bet there isn't enough space for everyone to plant a flag. Wonder how many more server will they increase to accommodate.(most MMOs have to increase number of servers).

    NDA has been lifted. There will be loads more of what players can build in the game.

    Paying for a founders pack is a lot more than getting an early invite.
    The amount of exclusive content they include makes it well worth it.

    game is kind of un playable, the client has memory leak, it uses over 12 GB of ram if you play over 20+min lol...
    And Ghost claims everywhere... Claims that do not exist and you can not build there...
    And if you want to kill your HARD Drive, please play this game, my SSD is going crazy, the load on the drive is abnormal with this game.

    This game has lots of technical bugs, not counting the in game ones....
