"With more than one million people playing our games, our official magazine draws our different game communities together and provides another level of communication with our players," said John Smedley, president, Sony Online Entertainment. "Sony Online Entertainment Worlds is tailored to the unique needs of our player base and offers tangible in-depth coverage that will not be available anywhere else."
Sony Online Entertainment Worlds will be the premier magazine for the players of SOE's suite of top-notch games. Every game that SOE develops -- from EverQuest® to PlanetSide® and everything in between -- will be covered. The magazine will be comprised of previews and extended features of new games, inside information on live titles, interviews with key members of the game teams, community-related pieces on top guilds, fansites and players, regular columns and the type of news and information relevant to SOE players that would not see print in any other type of publication. The magazine is being designed and created by Future Network USA, publisher of PC Gamer, PSM and many other market-leading interactive entertainment, technology and music magazines.
Players will have the opportunity to order the magazine either through some of SOE's games or via a separate website, www.soeworlds.com. This issue will be a special collector's edition with a limited print run. Pre-orders for Sony Online Entertainment Worlds are scheduled to begin in September for $4.99.
