Landmark is scheduled for this year correct?

There is only 2 months left in the year and only minimal information and hype on the game

Surely, marketing would be ramping up by now? or at least soon?

I'd say there's ZERO chance of them releasing Landmark this year. Unless they're planning on the shortest closed/open beta cycle in MMO history...

Since it is a free game there probably is not much point in putting money into advertising. People will find out about the release on various sites like this one anyway.

A free to play beta that is open to everyone is releasing the game. PoE was released like 6 months ago as an example, they just hid behind a beta label. I'd imagine the bets of landmark will be out soon enough.

True enough.

It's an F2P game, so the sooner they start open beta, the sooner they can get that Cash Shop going and start earning money...

Even still, should they not be seeding these sites with information and hype?

That would make me sad, Al tough to be expected. kinda had the feeling about the project from the start that they bit off more they can chew in the time frame proposed.

While I agree with what you said here, I think you should also add to that you can pay for a cash shop items and/or no character wipes as a stipulation.  You can still have a public beta in a F2P game as long as the cash shop isn't implemented or is in a "free" testing phase.

I would guess the beta schedule will be released last week of Nov. or first week of Dec....Then the actual start would be end of Dec or by the 2nd week of Jan....  It will be beta though, not sure if Landmark is the type of product that they will not wipe beta with though, since it will be 'open' and a different kind of mmo.

I know they have made a big deal about this game being released this year, but I keep feeling it will be delayed.  Wait and see.

I don't understand when people say its a game, it's a tool for EQN, the devs addressed it like that themselves.

I imagine landmark more like a sdk/devkit, a minecraft type building "game", you think something like needs alot of atention to alphas/beta's? I view it as a tool with no obligations to the user, a voluntary piece of a games mechanic to fiddle around in spare time.

the one above me has a point.

It was first designed as a tool and the developers uses it to create EQN. So a lot of testing is already done. Only things that have to be tested are networkstability with many people, the little gameplay bits from EQN like parcour and some of the social stuff.

If they announce next week the beta will start 15th November. and the release will be the 15th December. i say its enough time for Landmark.

 

P.S.: They said there will be no NDA for the Beta only for Alpha. Could mean they skip the closed beta and go right to the open beta for stresstesting the network.

Most of this upcoming Winter is in 2014.  My guess is that if it's not delayed, were'e probably looking at February.  Who knows, maybe they will surprise us.

A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

Yet SOE says it will have character progression, crafting, exploration and combat. Makes it sound like a game to me.

if landmark were releasing this year, they would come right out and say so.  They keep trying to be cute with this Winter release BS....Expect Landmark sometime mid 2014.

Although the concept does sound like a toolkit, The devs have emphasized that EQN:Landmark will be a mmo game in its own right.
