It's time to learn the date of the annual gathering of Sony Online Entertainment players, who will be flocking to Las Vegas this August to awkwardly realize that no one is really a Wood Elf, and the world is sad.

Tickets will go on sale this spring for Sony Online Entertainment's annual fan gathering, held this year at Bally's Las Vegas from August 5 through August 8. If you've never been to one of the SOE extravaganzas, be prepared for cosplay of varying degrees of skill, special announcements and sneak peeks at upcoming SOE titles, tournaments, trivia, some subtle LARPing, and a huge influx of children, considering this year those plucky Free Realms fans might be making the trip.
