SOE has added new content for adventurers in Landmark, building upon the game’s already robust crafting, combat and exploration.

Major highlights include a much more expanded network of cave layers, the first NPC monsters, tons of additional equipment, graveyards for raising the deceased, and a vast transportation system for endless exploration.

This month’s content update includes the following:

Caves and Caverns – 5 layers ripe for underground exploration with mining veins of metal and gems, treasure-filled ruins and buried monuments (many created by Landmark players themselves!), and new / undiscovered monsters.

Monsters Above & Below! – Five new types of monsters introduced both above ground and in the shadows below, each with a unique mode of attack and strategies to learn.

New Equipment – Combine a wide variety of new lootable / craftable equipment to customize your play style and experiences in combat. Read More →

Details regarding each game’s winter festivities and promotions can be found below!

DC Universe Online: Now through Jan. 6, 2015


Season’s Greedings! Larfleeze is up to his no-good-holiday-shenanigans again. During this year’s winter seasonal event, take on his Orange Lantern Corp minions in the open world or confront the nefarious thief in a special boss fight. Stop him, and you can earn yourself some holiday cheer and presents of your own. Previous years’ feats and rewards are back, in addition to new base items, styles, a feat, and collection.

Dragon’s Prophet: Now through Jan. 15, 2015


The Silver Dragon Festival is a time for family and friends to gather in celebration of the winter season and the forthcoming New Year’s festivities. It’s a time to enjoy the warmth of good food and pure wine, performances and songs praising the deeds of the dragon dance, and share gifts with one another to help bless the New Year. Unfortunately, this year’s Silver Dragon Festival has fallen prey to the misdeeds of a group of goblins and giants who plan to steal the dragon gifts. In order to bring peace to the festivities, it’s up to the good people to come together and put a stop to the goblins and giants. In true holiday spirit though, the Great Dragons don’t want to see any killing in the struggle, so the people must use the “snow gift of light” and make snowballs and snowmen to restore peace.

Ten years ago today, Sony Online Entertainment released the follow-up to the game that put massively-multiplayer online role-playing games on the map. Two week’s later Blizzard came along and set the map on fire, but some of us will never forget EverQuest II.

November 2004 was a magical month for MMO fans. Up until that month, EverQuest was synonymous with the genre, held up as an example of the appeal of playing online together as well as the possible negative side effects of immersing one’s self in online fantasy worlds.

EverQuest II took the series’ setting of Norrath five hundred years into the future, a cool time-jump that gave players of the first game a chance to rediscover the locations they’d spent five years inhabiting. Each new expansion pack uncovered a little more of the old world, often transformed in amazing ways. Read More →
