Sony Online Entertainment has announced the inclusion of a unique feature in its upcoming MMORPG Everquest II. Up until now, non-player characters in MMORPGs have predominantly interacted with players by sending them text messages. Everquest II, however, will be the first of its ilk to feature voice overs for all of its non-player characters. Sony Online Entertainment has also released a movie trailer featuring the new voice acting in action.
Everquest II will be the sequel to Everquest, which has been one of the most influential MMORPGs since its release in 1999. Look for Everquest II in all its glory when it's released on June 14th 2004.
