  • It's new, it's good. I'm talking about the weekly development activities. This is where you find out what the Turbine team is working on.

    Vendors and NPC's

    * The Jewelry and Clothing Pawnbrokers will be moving to the Marketplace Tent. Vendors selling non-magical consumable goods will take their place in the House shops.
    * We will be correcting some of the (now) incorrect NPC dialogue following the recent relocation of several quest NPCs.

    These and more are in Q&A and will be available on the next update.

    For a good time, visit our Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach community.

  • Here's the scoop

    Hey All,

    If you wander over to the ArchLord movies section you will find a delightful selection of two sneak preview videos of some ingame spells. I shall produce more compressed versions in the very near future.

    So what you have today for your viewing pleasure is.

    1) An orc warrior out in the dessert, applying one of the many available buffs to himself.

    2) A human Archer, buffing his armour as he prepares to engage in fierce battle.

    Enjoy,

    Mr.Ktat

    And Here's where you can find them.

    Now I have to go find a way to get the Mini Me's out of my head.. It's hurts! It HUUUUUURTS!

  • Turbine will add a new free module, called Twilight Forge due out in July.

    Besides the addition of solo content, fans of the traditional pen and paper D&D will rejoice in the addition of the Drow as a playable race, adding more choice in character creation.

    WESTWOOD, MA – May 10, 2006 – Turbine, Inc. announced today plans for a range of expanded player features and content, including more solo-friendly game play, to be included in the second content module for DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™ (DDO), the hit game that has quickly become one of the fastest-growing MMOGs (massively multiplayer online games) in North America. DDO is based on the world-renowned DUNGEONS & DRAGONS® brand franchise from Wizards of the Coast, Inc., a subsidiary of Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS).

    Free to all current DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™ subscribers, the Twilight Forge module is slated for release in July and will include the new drow race, new content for players of all levels, an improved new player experience, and enhanced replayability. Following on the heels of the successful retail launch with over 300,000 units sold worldwide, the Twilight Forge module is the second in a series of planned updates that will provide new content and features for DDO. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS is under license from the Hasbro Properties Group, the intellectual property development arm of Hasbro.

    "The Twilight Forge module will offer new players an improved single player experience, and existing players will enjoy creating new drow characters and exploring lots of new dungeons," said Jeffrey Anderson, president and CEO of Turbine, Inc. "We are committed to delivering future DDO modules that include features that continue to expand the game, such as additional character levels and player-versus-player (PvP) battles."

    Following on the April launch of the Dragon's Vault module, the Twilight Forge module offers new content for players of all levels ranging from new soloable dungeons in the harbor to additional advanced-level quests that culminate in a new raid encounter with the legendary Warforged Titan. The player experience has been vastly improved by including new features that make grouping easier, an improved user interface, and enhancements to the dungeons in the harbor that enable more solo-play and more diverse monster encounters.

    In addition to the ability to create characters based on the drow, also known as the dark elf, players can expect to encounter eight new monsters from the D&D® universe, including the Mindflayer, Ogre Magi, Warforged Titan, Mummy and Lich. Finally, the Twilight Forge module includes a new award system that gives players bonuses for completing dungeons on all difficulty levels.

    DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE: Stormreach recreates the essence of the classic pen-and-paper roleplaying experience - with an emphasis on non-grinding, instanced quests that provide a unique, immersive experience for each party. Authentic features in the game include customizable characters; dungeons filled with devious traps; monsters and stories from the Eberron® campaign setting; an on-screen d20 (20-sided die) and a dungeon master. The unique online world of Stormreach is a bustling city with thousands of players from around the world. It represents a new paradigm for the MMO genre with unique features including party-based quests, integrated voice chat, real-time action combat, and award winning graphics. DDO is based on the world-renowned DUNGEONS & DRAGONS brand franchise from Wizards of the Coast, Inc., a subsidiary of Hasbro.

  • European website for The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™ goes live with Beta signups.

    Codemasters Online Gaming is today pleased to announce the launch of the official European website for The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar at http://www.lotro-europe.com

    As an added bonus, Codemasters Online Gaming and Turbine, Inc. have also announced that sign ups for the European and North American Beta Program will also go live today. To sign up for the European Beta Program please go to http://www.lotro-europe.com/beta.

    The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar European website will be providing content in English, French and German along with localised forums. The striking site, designed to fit within a 1024*768 frame, is a glorious fusion between the bright, rolling hills of the Shire and the dark foreboding wastelands of Angmar.

    The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar is the first and only MMORPG based on the literary works of J.R.R. Tolkien and is currently in development at Turbine’s studios in Westwood, Mass. Codemasters Online Gaming will co-publish (with Turbine) and operate the title across Europe. Language support will include English, French and German.

    Ed Blincoe, Product Marketing Manager at Codemasters Online Gaming, commented:
    “Launching the website, complete with the opportunity for our community to sign up for the Beta, shows Codemasters’ commitment to The Lord of the Rings Online. This is just the beginning of a concerted effort to make sure people who are excited about the game will be able to get into the Beta and experience the amazing world that Turbine has created.”

    The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar allows players to discover their heroic destiny in the ongoing struggle for Middle-earth™. Players of all levels can experience and explore incredibly detailed realms and join familiar characters in an evolving and persistent re-creation of the beloved world depicted by Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.

    Players can adventure solo or forge their own fellowships online with others, as they face hideous monsters and minions of Sauron, fight epic battles to defend Middle-earth, and immerse themselves in the greatest adventure of our time.
