We'll be Everquestioning


Second wives, prepare your divorce papers: EverQuest Next is being unveiled this week. 

Sony Online Entertainment kicks off their annual "SOE Live" game expo at 7pm tomorrow in Las Vegas, and I can barely keep my dark elven pants on from the excitement. The event opens its doors to the public on August 2 and runs through the 4th. Online ticket sales have sold out, but you can still register at the door for $169 or catch the action via Twitch.tv/SOE. EQ fans have been waiting to see this game since its announcement in 2010, and I'm chief among them.  

Besides Everquest Next, we're sure to see new developments to DC Universe Online, PlanetSide 2, Dragon's Prophet, EverQuest 2, and other upcoming SOE titles. In a press release SOE President John Smedley declared that EverQuest Next will be something, "the MMO world has never seen before". We're excited to learn if this statement holds water, as the franchise's shine has lost its luster in the wake of more contemporary MMO's like World of Warcraft.

Will /pizza rise again?

Do you have any questions for the SOE Live team? Destructoid will be on location talking to developers and spending some hands-on time with the games. I hear there will also be a costumed pool party happening, so I'll be on location photographing all the elves (read: hairy bellied men) for your awkward home enjoyment.

Check out the schedule below:
