  • Make Your Character All It Can Be With Traits...

    On the Lord of the Rings Online Site today, the trait system was unveiled and explained. Taking more steps to let you make your character unique is always good...

    In The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™, a Trait is an interchangeable ability that alters your character in some fashion. Traits allow a great deal of skills customization, so two characters of the same class and the same level can still be significantly different from each other depending on how their players have used Traits to modify their character's skills.

  • Turbine, Inc. announced today that it has launched the eagerly awaited solo-mode for DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™ (DDO), the hit online game that has quickly become one of the fastest-growing massively multiplayer online games in North America.

    Turbine has introduced a series of solo–friendly enhancements and content improvements as part of the new player experience in DDO. New players can now experience over 20 dungeons throughout Stormreach™ harbor in a single-player mode. This feature grows the overall scope and quality of the game by enabling players to journey alone in epic adventure zones or dangerous dungeons. It also is particularly useful to new players, allowing them to hone their skills and better prepare for higher-level quests where they can join with fellow gamers to achieve success. This mode will be in addition to three existing game play options of “Normal,” “Hard” and “Elite.”

    “We are very thankful for the support and feedback from our players,” said Jeffrey Anderson, president and CEO of Turbine, Inc. “Today’s announcement demonstrates our commitment to make the game fun and easily accessible by all types of gamers.”

    Turbine has a strong track record of operating massively multiplayer online games; one of the keys to the company’s history of success is listening to its fans to continually evolve and invest in its games. This most recent change to include solo-friendly dungeons is the result of feedback from its customers. More exciting changes are still to come. In addition to the eagerly anticipated launch of the Twilight Forge module in July, Turbine has plans for another module slated for August and the title’s first expansion pack this fall which will include exciting player-versus-player combat arenas.

    Since its launch, hundreds of thousands of players have entered the unique online world of Stormreach to form one of the strongest online communities in the gaming industry. This community has been instrumental in driving the success of DDO which has sold over 300,000 units worldwide. For the latest information about updates to DDO, please visit http://www.ddo.com.
