EverQuest Next Landmark will start its Closed Beta on Wednesday, March 26, Sony Online Entertainment has announced on the game’s forums.
The games servers will be down on March 24 and 25 so SOE can wipe data and set up the new islands. The data wipe will delete everything except your character name, templates, and any items you purchased, whether through the Founder’s Pack or marketplace.
SOE highly recommends that you template any items on your claim that you’ll want in the Closed Beta no later than March 23. When the Closed Beta begins, you’ll need to choose a new appearance, gather new resources, craft new tools, and make new claims all over again.
According to what Director of Development for the EverQuest franchise David Georgeson said earlier this month, the Closed Beta means the game will soon add Player Studio, where players can buy and sell templates to other players with real money.
SOE also announced that the four time-limited beta keys that were included with the Trailblazer packs are now unlimited, meaning they now grant permanent access to the beta.
