This week, the NDA-cloaked Elder Scrolls Online came under fire for its recently revealed collector's edition, which opens the Imperial race exclusively to purchases, and for its preorder version, which allows those who buy early and sight-unseen the ability to play any race for any faction. ESO launches in two months.
Meanwhile, buildy-MMO EverQuest Next Landmark, previously criticized itself for charging testers for access, launched its alpha for early adopters on Friday, and by Saturday, it had dropped its NDA completely in spite of technical glitches. Landmark launches into closed beta in two months.
