EverQuest to Host Exhibit at Comic-Con Museum
Daybreak Games and the Comic-Con Museum announced they will host “EverQuest 20: A Living Legend” this month. The event will occur from April 27th through April 28th (Saturday and Sunday), to celebrate the franchise that popularized MMORPGs 20 years ago. In addition to showing off original art, the exhibit will be accompanied by special programs and panels, which are listed below.
The event will be hosted at The Comic-Con Museum’s future home in Balboa Park (2131 Pan America Plaza, San Diego, CA 92101). The original art, concept work, and other key items will be arranged into a community-focused EverQuest timeline, spanning two decades of active development and gameplay. The Museum gallery will feature original oil paintings by renowned fantasy artist and illustrator Keith Parkinson, the first game design document by Brad McQuaid, and original box art. Attending fans will also be invited on an EverQuest adventure inside the museum where they will solve challenges to receive exclusive rewards.
“EverQuest changed the face of MMORPGs and continues to evolve as we remain committed to delivering fantasy content to our loyal fans,” said Holly Longdale, Executive Producer of EverQuest. “We can’t wait to transport them on an art journey through the game and share their memories with other players who have also loved EverQuest for the past 20 years.”
“We are looking forward to welcoming the EverQuest community to the future home of the Comic-Con Museum and celebrating this incredible milestone in gaming history,” said Adam Smith, Executive Director of the Comic-Con Museum. “We can’t wait to commemorate this special moment with the developers and fans who have kept the world of Norrath alive and thriving for 20 years.”
