First off, late Friday SOE made their community aware that they were shutting down four of its titles. Free Realms, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, Wizardry Online and Vanguard Saga of Heroes. The reasons for each of the closures vary, but when it gets down to it, each game has had its struggles recently, either with a small player-base, or the cost to keep the game up and running, or lack of time to update. Free Realms and Clone Wars Adventures will close up on March 31st, while Vanguard and Wizardry end of July 31st.
Later that day John Smedley, President of SOE took part in an Ask Me Anything on Reddit. He covered questions ranging from the closures of the previous four mentioned titles as well as gave fans something to look forward to. When asked if he could launch a shut-down title, he chose Star Wars Galaxies, stating that he would do everything differently. He followed that up with this "SWG Players - Our next game, not announced yet, is dedicated to you. Once we launch it, you can come home". That tease along with a keen reader on Reddit, who found an image to a trademark renewal for SWG, gives many of us hope that there will be a new Star Wars game on the horizon.
Then, even later that day, on the EverQuest Next forums, a community manager posted information on the all new SOE All Access Plan. It had been hinted at in previous weeks that SOE would put together all their games into a nice and neat package that included all their titles, and that's what they have done. The SOE All Access Plan will include top-tier membership level in all eligible SOE games. These games include EverQuest, EverQuest II, DC Universe Online and PlanetSide 2, for the PC versions only, as well as the upcoming EverQuest Next and Landmark. Dragon's Prophet may be added in later. The pass will also include 500 monthly Station Cash, as well as a 10% discount on marketplace purchases and exclusive promotions and offers throughout the year. All that for $14.99, with discounts for extended month plans.
