Landmark goes down for 24 hours ahead of massive update

Sony Online Entertainment is preparing to unleash Landmark's biggest update yet. So it's going to need to go down for 24 hours to get ready.


Landmark (formerly EverQuest Landmark) is bracing to receive its biggest update so far. In fact, to make room for it, the game will need to go down for a full 24-hour period. The game is estimated to return tomorrow at 1PM PST.

Sony Online Entertainment detailed the changes on the Landmark forums. The world will expand further than it has before, featuring caves that will allow players to dig all the way down to the world's core. New monsters, loot, and transportation systems will also debut, along with refined resource distribution and crafting system changes. Part of the crafting changes will include being able to salvage items for the first time. SOE is also promising voice chat and major quality of life improvements with this new patch.

There's so much ground to cover that SOE will take to Twitch prior to the end of the maintenance period. Visit the Landmark Twitch channel tomorrow at 10AM PST to learn more about what's coming with the new update. Patch notes are expected to go up once the update is live. Beta keys for Landmark are still going out, but those looking to jump in with some premium goodies can jump in through Steam Early Access.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
