Sony Online Entertainment has opened a founder’s program for EverQuest Next Landmark, the worldbuilding sandbox which will presage the new MMO.

Three kinds of Founder’s Pack are available from Landmark’s website – $20, $60 and $100 tiers.

The $20 Settler Pack will be delivered by March 31, 2014, and includes unlimited closed beta access, a settler flag item, a founder’s pickaxe, the title of founder and forum title of founder.

The $60 Explorer Pack will be delivered by February 28, 2014, and includes all the above as well as alpha access, an explorer flag item, the ring of bounty, a mega pocket, courtier’s regalia and tech sergeant’s gear.

The $100 Trailblazer pack is also due on or before February 28 and includes everything above, as well as the trailblazer flag item, a mastercraft bracer, void vault, noble’s regalia, tech commander’s gear, four shareable closed beta keys, an open beta boost and your name in the game’s credits.

If you buy in at the $100 tier during alpha, you’ll also get early access to the beat forum, the forum title Trailblazer, an alpha boost and the title Trailblazer.

Players may find their creations used by Sony Online Entertainment in Everquest Next itself; you’ll literally be helping to build the MMORPG’s world. Take a look at how it works in this Everquest Next Landmark footage.

    F2P MMORPG? I’ll keep on eye on this one for sure.

    I like what they’re doing with this, so much. I’m going to get on early just out of respect for it. It’s voxel-based, it supports player-created content, it has no levels… in many ways, it’s like a dream MMO for me.

    If they pull this off, it could result in a paradigm shift. It seems thus far only Cryptic has realised how much MMOs need player-created content as a building block, and even then only in very limited ways.

    And another factor of the stale, ancient MMO is how painfully static it is. Nothing ever changes. EQN has the potential to be the opposite of that.

    So… yoink!

    Been waiting sooo long for this f*cker. EQ1 was the best MMORPG ever. Everything after it was a dumbed down kiddy pos.

    SPACE STATIONS. He. Said. Space stations.

    I don’t even… I mean, one of the only shortfalls of Everquest Next for me was that it was sounding like a typical fantasy MMO. I’ve been saying lately that I wanted more creative sci-fi MMOs, with interesting races, settings, and such.

    And now… space stations.

    Kerrans in space.

    I don’t know how to feel about this.

    I think I want to see a kerran in a space suit.

    So. Yeah. That’s… cool. That’s actually really, really cool. But is that just something they’re… saying? Or will there actually be space stations?

    What’s going on, SOE?
