On March 16, Sony Online Entertainment's seminal massively multiplayer online role-playing game, EverQuest, will turn 10. To honor the occasion, City Council member Carl DeMaio will officially proclaim March 16 as "Sony Online Entertainment Day" in San Diego, where SOE is headquartered.
According to a statement provided by SOE, "This proclamation serves to commemorate the 10th anniversary and launch of EverQuest on this day as well as the continued support and dedication SOE shows to the city and community of San Diego."
SOE has also issued an open invitation for EQ fans to join in the proceedings. DeMaio is scheduled to issue the proclamation on March 10 at 10:00 a.m.,which will take place in room 202C on the 12th floor of San Diego's Council Chambers.
It may be a decade old, but SOE continues to update its flagship MMOG with new expansions. The game's 15th expansion, Seeds of Destruction, arrived in October, while EverQuest II--launched alongside Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft in 2004--saw its fifth expansion in November.
