The Landmark community has been informed that the game will be shutting down on February 21, 2017. The decision was made "after much review" and with a heavy heart. Between now and the closure, Player Studio items will no longer be accepted for listing or for purchase. Everything in the Marketplace will sell for one DBC.
Landmark started out as a game tied very closely to EverQuest Next. Unfortunately, EverQuest Next was canceled and now Landmark has launched as a standalone game. I don't tend to often enjoy sandbox games too much and I've never really gotten into the whole "Minecraft" sorts of games, so for me Landmark was really different from the usual... and it is quite enjoyable though there are a few issues.
Landmark's Trailblazers are now able to enter the full release version of Landmark and can take part in 48-hours of early access. The official site has some instructions for players who may be having issues with the Launchpad and the thread will continue to be updated throughout the day.
Daybreak Game Company has announced the official launch date for Landmark as June 10th. Those playing the closed beta with any one of the founders' packs will have automatic access to the game on launch. Those using a shared beta key have the option to upgrade. Founders' Packs will continue to be sold through June 6th.
Daybreak is looking for feedback from Landmark players about the recent big changes in the game. Devs are hoping to learn more about how players feel about Story Tools, Prop Linking,Starter Templates, and Chaos Caverns / Outposts.
Landmark players have time yet to while away during patch deployment that started yesterday and could run as long as 48-hours. The new patch brings a huge number of changes into the game including new character customization options, terminology changes, bug fixes, UI improvements and much, much more.
The Landmark forum has a new post that should cheer up players mourning the loss of EverQuest Next. A new update is planned that will allow players to create and add characters to claims in order to tell epic stories, participate in adventures, combat or dungeon delving.
Landmark has finally gotten a release date. Players can look forward to finally getting hands on the finished version of the game in Spring 2016. In addition to this news, Daybreak Game Company also announced that Holly Longdale has been named as the Executive Producer for the title adding it to her duties with EverQuest and EverQuest II.
For the first time in a great while the Landmark forum has been updated with a developer post that details the next significant update to the game. Among many other things, the new players will have a slightly easier introduction to the game.
