Sony Online Entertainment
director of development Dave Georgeson
has posted a new update over on the official EverQuest Next Landmark
forum outlining the team's plans for moving forward and asking players for opinions on possible upcoming build contests. In the post, Georgeson notes that SOE's first order of business with Landmark
is focusing on communications, rating systems, and ways for players to better cooperate with one another. Teams will also be working on systems like combat, AI, and water.
Additionally, Georgeson revealed that SOE is going to start running Landmark
building contests. The first contest revolves around designing a landmark for island hubs, but future contests are left up to a poll in the post. Choices include homages to buildings in previous EverQuest
games, new architecture for Norrath, and genre-specific contests that center on modern, sci-fi, or fantasy designs.
