Sony Online Entertainment today announced its E3 2012 product line-up.
Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) today announced its E3 product line-up which includes PlanetSide 2 along with all the latest updates from its most popular franchises, including: DC Universe Online, EverQuest II, Free Realms, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.
SOE will also be unveiling two new games from its free-to-play portfolio, including the first-person shooter Bullet Run and fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game Wizardry Online. In addition, the EverQuest II team will demonstrate its new facial recognition feature, SOEmote.
PlanetSide 2 takes all the features from the original game -- massive multiplayer battles, distinct empires to rally around, and enormous continents -- and adds features that modern gamers have come to expect of the FPS and MMO genres.
DC Universe Online
The Last Laugh Downloadable Content #4 features an all-new weapon, hours of multiplayer gameplay in the Safe Houses and Headquarters, and new Legends PvP characters.
Introduction to SOEmote, a new facial recognition and voice technology feature that allows players ability for personal expression and role playing in EverQuest II. Featuring facial recognition software created by Image Metrics, and integrating Vivox's voice font technology, SOEmote was designed to truly bring the roleplay back to roleplaying games.
Developed by ACONY Games and available later this summer for the PC, Bullet Run is a team-based multiplayer game that puts players in the ultimate reality TV game show, where contestants showcase their deadly talents in the name of fame.
The all-new Sunstone Valley, the long awaited regional content expansion for Free Realms is opening later this summer, and in it players will have an entirely new desert landscape to explore, desert monsters to battle and a whole slew of new quests and rewards.
Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures
Spotlight on the new Clone Wars Adventures Card Assault Trading Card Game.
Vanguard: Saga of Heroes
Vanguard is a fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game set in the vast world of Telon, an ancient world of magic, intrigue and adventure.
Produced by Gamepot, this latest game features countless traps and monsters that will hinder players' adventures as they cross the difficult dungeons. Wizardry Online retains the characteristic elements of the original Wizardry and merges them with modern MMORPG functions.
