Landmark’s next big update arrives Monday, wipes claims and characters

    
33

Daybreak has been amping up communication about Landmark this past week following the news that it’s plotting a spring launch for the sandvox MMO in lieu of completing EverQuest Next’s development, and its next update is on the way:

“We are still in the process of internal testing, but if all goes well, we plan to roll out the big update for next Monday, March 21 at 10am pacific time. There will likely be 24-48 hours down time due to the extensive changes. If we find some issues during testing that mean we need to push this date, we’ll let you know!”

The studio promises a stream during the downtime and reminds players that characters, claims, and guild names will indeed be wiped.

Here’s a quick look at our recent coverage of what’s coming in the update:

The more I think about the cancellation of EQN, the more I have to call bullshit on their reason. If it was cancelled because it wasn’t fun, what’s the reason Landmark is still going? Of all the games I’ve played, that game is definitely not fun. Sure, when it was new and shiny, it provided some amusement (still wouldn’t call it fun). Once the novelty of building wore off, and I don’t care if you suck at it or are the next voxel prodigy, the amusement disappeared. How can anyone expect a game where all you do is harvest, craft and build, with no meaningful reasons behind doing so, to be fun and engaging for more than a few weeks.

So the reason DBG gave for EQN being cancelled is straight up bullshit. Closer to the truth would probably be that the parent company is the same as any other investment company; caring only about money and literally nothing else, and saw all the money being spent on a risky proposition and decided it would be better to focus on the games that are already done and bringing in money. I think the fact that SOE/DBG charged people for Landmark made it a problem to just shut that down as well. So now we get word of it’s eminent release. And you know what? That will most likely get shut down soon after launch. No one in their right mind (so there will be many) is going to play that game for any period of time that one could call long-term. So after a period of maybe a few months, it will close its doors as well.

I’ll check it out, since I bought the founder pack, but I have no faith in this company anymore.

pcgneurotic Really? I know we have used it a number of times over the last couple years. Now, I must find ways to sneak it in more just to see if noticed =D

nahenway pcgneurotic Zariarn It is, this is true. But, think of it as another opportunity to refine and tweak your design. :)
