    Try DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™ (DDO) for free and have a chance to win prizes – including a chance to win an Alienware® Area 51® m5500 Notebook!

    Turbine is very pleased to announce that we will be running a special Preview of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE: Stormreach in conjunction with IGN and FilePlanet!

    This Preview is open to players in North America who are registered Fileplanet users (a paid FilePlanet subscription is NOT required). Only U.S. residents age 18 and over are eligible to win prizes.

    Beginning today, January 13, all registered FilePlanet users in North America can sign-up for the chance to access the DDO Preview, which will run from Thursday, January 19 through Saturday, January 21. Preview access will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis until the allotted Preview registration keys have been distributed by FilePlanet. If you are not currently a registered FilePlanet user, you can visit FilePlanet right now to create an account and then sign up for the DDO Preview.

    You can now activate your preorder bonus key. Doing this will create a game account that you will be able to use once the headstart begins in late February and allow you to obtain the +1AC amulet. Again, the amulet will become available once the headstart begins. This account can then be upgraded once you get the retail copy of the game which will allow you to continue using the account once the game officially goes live.

  • Let the previewing begin! IGN previews this newly announced expansion pack for Guild Wars.

    Guild Wars was a great success. And with great success comes great expansions and eventually sequels. ArenaNet, developer of Guild Wars, has done things a bit different from the very beginning and are continuing the trend. Instead of offering the basic expansion pack that most were expecting, they're offering up Guild Wars: Factions, a stand-along (yes along) that allows players to purchase and play the title without needing the original Guild Wars. Those that have the original Guild Wars that purchase Factions can adventure on the new continent. Those that buy Factions first can then go back and experience the original content at a later time. Interesting? We think so.

  • RPG Vault has a Dungeons and Dragons Video Commentary for your viewing enjoyment.

    What we've seen of the game so far is certainly very intriguing and we wanted to make sure to share as much of it with you as possible. To that end, we had the chance to corner Lead Designer Ken Troop and get him to provide some commentary over footage captured from the game.
    Each of the videos encompasses different elements of the game for around 25 minutes of footage total. Therefore we thought it would be best to split them into three different videos but we certainly recommend grabbing all of them in succession.. You'll see everything from general thoughts about the world of Eberron to how the team dynamic can affect quests and combat.

    Do yourself a favor and visit our Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach Site You won't regret it.

  • Looks like Blizzard is being kind with the candy again. Blizzplanet has a new Exclusive screen of the upcoming expansion Burning Crusade.

    Blizzard Entertainment has granted an exclusive screenshot of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Expansion, displaying one of the chambers of the Tower of Kharazhan, known as the Tower of Medivh in Warcraft: The Last Guardian and chapter 8 of the Human Campaign in Warcraft: Orcs and Humans.

    Choose any of the three image sizes.

    The World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Video Tour 1 over at Gamespot shows the room of our exclusive screenshot -- shown at BlizzCon 2005.

    It seems Sargeras/Medivh had a Michael Angelo-esque Artist create a Fresco-painting of Orchish angels on the ceiling.

    Check out our own World of Warcraft site Be sure to read the guides. They're fantastic.

  • This just in from the desk of the lovely Pann, the Auto Assault NDA has been lifted. I repeat, it HAS been lifted. Therefore all of those juicy little details that you've been holding back just waiting to tell somebody can finally come out! It also means that you're going to get a whole lot of goodies on our Auto Assault TTH site. So, enjoy the ride and have fun talking about it!

    The Auto Assault team is pleased to announce that on Tuesday, January 10, the Non-Disclosure Agreement was lifted. Members of the beta community and the gaming press are now permitted to publicly discuss their experiences in the Auto Assault beta test, as well as take and publish their own screenshots and videos. Those who have been awaiting the opportunity to publish beta diaries on their sites or write follow-ups to previously published previews are free to do so.

    Producer Steve Snow also revealed the plans for the loot bonus that will be granted to players who have purchased the Auto Assault preorder package. In a post on the official message boards, Snow wrote, “The way the bonus works is it increases a creature’s chance to drop enhanced items from one to five percent of the creature’s base chance, so if you’re fighting a boss and it has an 80% chance to drop enhanced items, when your character gets credit for the kill the boss will have an 84% chance to drop enhanced items. For infantry that has only 1% chance to drop enhanced loot, the loot bonus will make that chance 2%. All of this is provided your character has looting rights to the creature when it dies. This will show up in the game as a medal on your character. The loot bonus is applied to your Auto Assault account, so every character created on a pre-order account will have the loot bonus. This is in addition to the unique retailer weapons that improve alongside your character.” You can read the entire post at http://boards.autoassault.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=50632.

    Coinciding with the lifting of the NDA and the preorder loot bonus announcement, MMORPG.com will be giving away six thousand serial codes that will grant the gaming community the opportunity to participate in a special beta weekend event that starts Friday, January 13, at 4 pm Eastern time and ends Sunday, January 16, at 3 am Eastern time. In preparation for the assigning of the keys, the client and download instructions have been made available on the event page here: http://www.mmorpg.com/aa_betaweekend.cfm?fp=1280,1024,428656218,20060111....
