If they can build it, they will come.
When presented with the opportunity to get my hands on EverQuest Next Landmark
and build something for myself, I leaped at the chance. Who hasn't been sitting back, eagerly awaiting the moment he could dive into the wilds of Landmark
and let his creativity run rampant? As one half of the Some Assembly Required
team, I knew it would be no great sacrifice to try out this upcoming beacon of player-generated-content.
And man, was it worth it! I met with EverQuest
Franchise Director Dave Georgeson
to talk shop and check out Landmark's
tools in my own personal hands-on pre-alpha experience. Instead of just gazing longingly at a screen while watching a demonstration, I got to test drive all the various building tools as I obsessively constructed my own amethyst castle. The only real problem I ran into was that my time ended all too soon, and now I must wait until February for the alpha
to play again.
So is it better to have built and lost than never to have built at all? I may have to get back to you on that when -- and if -- my withdrawals subside. Until then, here's the scoop on my experience along with a new video and some juicy tidbits of new info straight from Georgeson himself.
