Sony has announced the debut of a new convention devoted to Sony Online Entertainment MMOs, SOE Live. The convention will be located in Las Vegas, NV from the 18th through 21st October this year. The convention will take place at the Bally's Casino. The games that will be showcased at the convention include DC Universe Online, EverQuest, EverQuest II, Free Realms, Magic: The Gathering - Tactics, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. The convention will also debut PlanetSide 2.
"SOE Live" will also be the rebranding of the Sony Online Entertainment label.
According to SOE VP of marketing and sales Laura Naviaux, "The 'SOE Live' name change represents a deeper meaning behind our annual event. As our game portfolio continues to expand, we wanted to better represent our diverse player base and games, including the newest additions to the SOE family, with DC Universe Online, Free Realms, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, and the highly anticipated PlanetSide 2. Previous event attendees can rest assured that we are not removing any of our established activities in order to accommodate the new players; rather, they can expect even more to make this the ultimate SOE fan experience."
The convention will also feature social events, panel discussions and game-themed live events, as well as offering a forum for fans to voice opinions of the current and upcoming MMOs. SOE Live will also feature exclusive access to new announcements and beta programs, tournaments, premium swag and more.
