SOE Live: Here's what EverQuest Next sounds like


11:16 AM on 08.02.2013



During last night's SOE Live keynote, president John Smedley gave the gossip-starved EverQuest fans one dangling carrot: an early taste of the game's musical score and some face time with legendary musical composer Jeremy Soule. Mr. Soule sheepishly warned us that what we were listening to was but a rough sketch, assembled only on synth and missing parts and instruments. Both men then stood there above us on stage looking at the mystified crowd as the sounds washed over us. Its no surprise a bold clap of 2,000 people shortly followed.

Earlier that day I spoke to Mr. Soule about his process and he said he usually is influenced by the color palette of the game, but that EverQuest Next had to be approached differently. An angry Red Hulk in the media room will crush me if I say any more, so look for that full video interview in the coming days as we kick off a week of SOE developer diaries following the oncoming announcements. I'm looking forward to Jayson Napolitano's thoughts on this.

Today, my job literally rocks.
