EverQuest RTS Planned

This press release has the announcement from Sony Online Entertainment that a project is underway to combine the EverQuest universe with a real-time strategy game as well as plans for an EQ game for the PS2. Perhaps to be filed under the heading of turn-about being fair play (this is sort of the mirror image to Blizzard's announcement of an MMOG based on Warcraft), here is a bit from the P.R. that offers what few details on this plan that have been released:

Sony Online Entertainment Inc. (SOE), a worldwide leader in massively multiplayer online gaming, today announced deals with Snowblind Studios Inc. and Rapid Eye Entertainment Inc. to create original content for the PC and console markets under the SOE label. Rapid Eye Entertainment is currently developing a real-time strategy, PC-based EverQuest game while Snowblind Studios is developing an EverQuest-based product for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system. Further product information will be announced at a later date.

Master of Magic had heros with inventories... Now -that- was a fun game! Ahh, the good old days of turn-based strategy games in DOS...
