Can we just be honest for a second? How can you not love Dave Georgeson? The guy obviously loves what he does and he’s exactly what SOE needed to revitalize their business for the upcoming onslaught of games they have set for release.
2014 is a big year for SOE as it marks the 15th anniversary of the original EverQuest. While many gamers these days are too young to have experienced the original EverQuest, those of us that are old now remember the game quite well. 1999 – 2003 is widely considered to be the golden age of EverQuest and that includes the highly acclaimed Planes of Power expansion. A not widely known fact about Planes of Power was that SOE had originally planned and developed The Plane of War as additional zone for the expansion. Due to technical limitations at the time the zone just couldn’t be completed with the vision SOE had set forth and the entire zone was scraped from the release.
Let’s not forget 2014 is also the 10th anniversary of EverQuest 2 and the Alpha launch of EverQuest Next Landmark. All in all SOE has a huge year in store for fans, old and new alike.
Finally, SOE opens its doors to the community on January 31st. Fans can visit the SOE campus to get a first hand look at what the developers are up to and be among the first to experience EverQuest Next Landmark.
