is under development and, in an interesting move, they are developing two different games at the same time: Everquest Next
, an upcoming MMO continuing the series with developer-created content, and Everquest Landmark
, which takes the tools the developers are using to create the world in Everquest Next
and makes them available for players to go crazy.
The expectation is that the feedback from players using the tools could lead to improvement in the development tools themselves. In addition, players will be able to create their own in-game objects, which they can then sell to other players, using an in-game marketplace. There will even be an option for players to earn real money selling their creations.
Check out the video below; it shows some of the amazing creations that were whipped up by players during the game's Alpha. When you're done with that, check out the link below to apply for the Closed Beta test.
