The Ready Player Two Easter Egg
What is an Easter egg? Some will ask. Video game lovers will know perfectly well that it is a secret hidden on purpose to be found, a small wink that sometimes offers new adventures and rewards, and that is just what it will bring. Ready Player Two.
It may not be a particularly flashy resource, but it sure will work. and it is that Cline has decided that it is an Easter egg the one that traces the new adventure.
An extremely powerful enemy
Thanks to the presentation of the book that has been held in the New York Comic ConWe finally know how the second part of the book will unfold. Whoever was the narrator of the official audiobook was in charge of reading the synopsis on the flap, and it said the following:
An unexpected search. Two worlds at stake. Are you ready?
Days after OASIS founder James Halliday’s contest, Wade Watts makes a discovery that changes everything. Hidden within Halliday’s vaults, waiting for his heir to find it, lies a technological breakthrough that will once again change the world and make OASIS more wonderful – and addictive – than even Wade dreamed possible. This will kick off a new puzzle and quest, a final Halliday Easter egg hinting at a mysterious prize, and an unexpected, incredibly powerful, new and dangerous rival awaits, one who will kill millions until he gets what he wants. Wade’s life and the future of OASIS are at stake again, but this time, the fate of humanity is also at stake.
It seems that things in OASIS are going to get complicated, so we’ll see how Wade and his virtual colleagues manage to get out of this. We will surely return to enjoy more than one nod to the video game industry, and we will see if the book achieves as much success as the original novel. That would almost certainly guarantee a second half.
If they dare with a trilogy? What will be next? A DLC with an OASIS update?
