Vanguard - Media Event Report @ Ten Ton Hammer
by Dhruin, 2006-10-16 14:32:30
I remember getting very excited back in the day when news about EverQuest II first started to break. Say what you want about Sony Online Entertainment (SOE), but you can’t say that they fail to pack a punch in the marketing department. SOE pushed out a tremendous deal of hype when SOE was in its pre-launch stages. Although the game has grown and improved vastly since the days when it was launched to much fanfare and noise about innovative features and celebrity voice-overs, EQ2 may have missed its chance to really shine due to over-hype and initial under-delivery.
Enter Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, a game poised for publication by SOE in the first quarter of 2007. SOE has just begun to fire its heavy-duty marketing engines where Vanguard is concerned, but the fact that the game is being published by SOE begs the question: will Vanguard be all flash and no substance?
