Prosiebensat.1 will not have to worry about going through the company for EverQuest Next Landmark. SOE has just announced that due to the unique nature of the game, it will directly manage Landmark for Europe, North America, and all other regions. The official statement says,
Since we are delivering an entirely new and unique approach to MMO game design and development with EverQuest Next Landmark, and given that SOE's Player Studio program is one of the cornerstones of EverQuest Next Landmark, SOE will directly manage EQNL and Player Studio for all regions.Players in all regions wanting to get in on Landmark's beta will use the same the same sign-up form. Beta for EverQuest Next, however, is still split into regions; EU players can sign up at either the EU site, the UK site, or the German site, while those in North America and all other regions head to one page.
