This February, players of Star Wars Galaxies™, Star Wars Galaxies™ Trading Card Game, EverQuest® II and Legends of Norrath can express their romantic side with a variety of festive diversions and activities.

WHEN/WHERE:

Valentine’s Day-themed events are scheduled to take place in the virtual worlds of your favorite SOE games. Exact dates vary by title. Please log on to http://www.station.sony.com for more information. Screenshots and art assets are available on our press website, http://SOEpress.com.

In-game events are as follows:

Star Wars Galaxies™ Ewok Festival of Love begs the question, what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with chocolate fountains surrounded by dancing Ewoks? That’s just a sampling of the romantic escapades coming to SWG beginning Feb. 10 through March 10, 2009. The Festival of Love also has four activities which can lead to special rewards such as a Crossbow of Love weapon, which decreases an enemy’s hate toward the player who wields it.

EverQuest® II’s annual Erollisi Day runs from Feb. 10 through Feb. 17, 2009, giving players across Norrath the chance to acquire“love loot”– such as love notes or candies– which can then be used in holiday tradeskill recipes or exchanged for Erollisi coins. New quests for this year’s event will give players a chance to earn the trust of the Sisters of Erollisi and learn more about the mystery of Erollisi's absence.
