DDO’s first expansion since going F2P delves into the Underdark

By Stephany Nunneley, Thursday, 19 January 2012 15:25 GMT

Turbine has announced the first expansion for Dungeon and Dragons Online since going free-to-play in 2009, and it will take players into the amazing world of the Forgotten Realms.

The expansion, Menace of the Underdark, will take players into the subterranean world of the Underdark, where they will com face-to-face with the Drow and their scheming Queen and goddess, Lolth, in the stronghold of Shindylryn.

Included in the expansion is the oft requested Druid class and an increased level cap of 25, all in time for the game’s sixth anniversary.

“2011 was a year of growth for Dungeons & Dragons Online as we celebrated our fifth anniversary and completed a successful launch of the game in Europe,” said Fernando Paiz, the game’s executive producer. “2012 is going to be our biggest year yet with a wealth of new content throughout the year including the launch of our first expansion pack. We are very excited to expand into the Forgotten Realms setting.”

Menace of the Underdark is slated for a summer 2012 launch.
