Posted Tue, Feb 05, 2013 by Martuk

The truth is out there. At least it is in Dungeons & Dragons Online’s next update anyway. The answers to the cursed fate that befell the giants following an act of treachery during their war with the dragons are what await players in Update 17: Return to Gianthold. Today Turbine released a new batch of screenshots to show off some of the enemies and venues that players will have the chance to explore later this month. Check them out in out screenshot gallery.

The Ruins of Gianthold Adventure Pack is free to VIPs and now features two new difficulty settings:

Heroic Gianthold
Explore the updated quests and wilderness area of Gianthold in Heroic difficulty.  Visual updates and a revised story will take you deeper into the myth and legend of Gianthold Tor.  With the Stormreaver and his followers planning to destroy the world, it falls to the heroes of Stormreach to stop them by any means necessary.

Epic Gianthold
In the all-new Epic difficulty, Gianthold is under siege by dragons under the leadership of The Truthful One.  In an effort to save his people, the Stormreaver escapes from imprisonment and returns to confront his ancient nemesis. Learn the truth of the draconic prophecies and put a stop to The Truthful One’s plans once and for all!

If you’re itching for more details, be sure to check out the official DDO update page and our Update 17 play session with the devs to delve a little deeper and learn more about what’s in store for players.
