SOE Dumps 4 MMOs, Hints at New Star Wars Galaxies and more! | The Daily XP January 27th
During an AMA event over the weekend Sony Online Entertainment announced the forthcoming closure for 4 of it's free-to-play MMO games. Free Realms, Star Wars: Clone Adventures, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes and Wizardy Online will all be facing the axe later this year. Free Realms and Star Wars will face closure on March 31st while the latter two previously mentioned MMO titles will see their last day on July 31st.
SOE stated that both Star Wars and Free Realms would be closing as the titles appealed to a younger audience that has now grown and moved on to other experiences, while Vanguard and Wizardry Online will close due to age and quality. Wizardry Online is still a baby in MMO terms but one that hit every branch on the ugly tree before rolling down unsightly hill and sinking to the depths of hideous ocean - yes, it was that bad.
In related news Sony Online Entertainment have also announced the upcoming release of All Access membership subscription's across their MMO network set to launch on April 2nd. For $14.99 players will receive a variety of benefits, including top tiered access to every MMO in SOE's arsenal. For more information you can check out the official forum post.
