EverQuest Next Landmark enters closed beta, changes name to Landmark

World-building game Landmark made the transition from alpha testing phase to closed beta today, developer Sony Online Entertainment announced, revealing that the game will now be known as just Landmark. Director of development Dave Georgeson explained the name change from EverQuest Next Landmark to Landmark was to differentiate the title from fantasy game EverQuest Next. "To a lot of people, having EverQuest in the name immediately implies a fantasy game," Georgeson wrote. "Landmark is anything you can imagine. Removing EverQuest Next seemed the best. This doesn't change anything we've said about Landmark or EverQuest Next. All the details of the games are still the same. We're still using Landmark to build EverQuest Next — and we'll still have areas dedicated to EQN." L...

EverQuest celebrates 15th anniversary with a video tribute to its players

EverQuest celebrates the 15th anniversary of its launch tomorrow and, to commemorate the occasion, Sony Online Entertainment released a video looking back at the game's beginnings, and the memories it has made since. EverQuest launched on March 16, 1999 and though it was not the first massively multiplayer online role-playing game, its success made it among the most visible ones in the early days of the genre. Since then, the game has seen 20 expansions and, in 2012, added a free-to-play option. The game was enshrined in the GDC Video Game Hall of Fame in 2011. Sony also put out an infographic comparing the changes in the game, and in culture, from 1999 to 2014. A timeline notes major developments in the game's history—including the addition of the /pizza command in Everquest II....

2014's most innovative games by the people making them

Polygon contacted about 30 developers and publishers making highly promising games and asked them, what makes your game so special? Why should gamers be excited about your new game? These games represent just a slice of the many great titles on offer this year and, judging by the responses we received, developers are finding different ways to use technology and design ideas to progress their particular genres. The themes of 2014 are about going back to core genres, finding out what makes them really work, and then looking further afield to bring in ideas and mechanics that can bring some unique quality to the games. Shooters become more like RPGs, which become more like MMOs; puzzle games become more narrative and narrative games become more action-orientated. NEW NAMES Console...
