|Don’t forget to join us for SOE’s first ever Ustream Beta Tour, on Friday, February 5, 2010, hosted by Alan “Brenlo” Crosby, Senior Producer of EverQuest II.
Beginning at 4:00 p.m. PST, tune in to SOE’s Ustream channel to get an exclusive guided tour of EverQuest II: Sentinel’s Fate, through the eyes of the game’s producer. Chat with other viewers as the tour takes place, and get ramped up for the expansion release, on February, 16, 2010. We’ll see you there!
UPDATE: After 40 minutes, so far we have discovered that UStream + EQ2 + Sentinel’s Fate Beta needs more testing. We have so far seen ~5 minutes of choppy video and 25 minutes of black.
UPDATE 2: We’re back on the air.
Update 3: There was a bunch more GREAT information given during the end of the Tour. I started taking notes but it was too fast, so I recorded the second half of the event using Sony Sound Forge 9.0, thinking I would be able to go back and listen to it and make notes. BUT since Sony Sound Forge 9.0 is a PIECE OF CRAP, it lost the entire recording. So I really don’t have much information for you guys. Yes, I want to kick a puppy right now. I am removing Sony Sound Forge 9.0 and going back to Sound Forge 4.5 which is before Sony bought it.
In short, Brenlo is pushing aggressively for more x2 and x4 raid zones as content updates this year, and is hoping to add cross-server grouping as well but it is unknown when that will happen.
