Sony Online just announced the closed beta date for the extremely exciting build’em up MMORPG EverQuest Next Landmark: March 26th. As usually is the case with alpha tests, all progress will be wiped when transitioning into closed beta, so you can say goodbye to pretty much everything “except your character name, your templates and any items you purchased (Founder’s Pack items or marketplace purchases).”
SOE also added a few new features including a party option. You’ll be able to set up a party with up to 4 players. As for the rest, the recent update includes a few bug fixes.
