Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited: Entering the Forgotten Realms

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 17,105MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

2012 will bring some big, sweeping changes to Turbine's Dungeons & Dragons Online. One of the most exciting is the journey into the Underdark, a Forgotten Realms setting that should give players a lot to look forward to and that's just the beginning. Check out what else Turbine has up their collective sleeve for DDO in our exclusive report.

To say there are big changes coming to Dungeons & Dragons Online is an understatement. We spoke with the team at Turbine this past week, and there are massive sweeping changes coming to the game which will truly break ground for D&D and gamers all over the MMO space. As the game begins its sixth anniversary the new content coming is a huge shift for D&D fans. Prepare gamers as you are about to enter The Underdark!

    ok, now that's intriguing. And at least more interesting than the current setting.

    I know I'm supposed to try and be impartial, but: EXCITED. I can get behind a DDO in this setting, that's for damn sure.

    Try to be excellent to everyone you meet. You never know what someone else has seen or endured.

    Me too. One of the reasons I don't play DDO is that the current setting holds no interest for me. This on the other hand...

    Epic..........Has immediately won back my interest. Huge fan of this setting.

    I get twitchy whenever 5E is mentioned, but let's wait and see.

    Nature without Technology is little more than animals running about.
    Nature without Magic is without wonder or miracle.
    Magic without Technology is fantasy.
    Magic without Nature is formless and useless.
    Technology without Nature is application without understanding.
    Technology without Magic is repetitious and uninventive.

    I played free trial before it went f2p and I thought it was funn but then lotro and WoW got their claws in me. This may make me try it again, ill have to see what the f2p restrictions are though.

    Well now, this is interesting indeed.

  • fuedfued BudapestPosts: 1Member

    Hmm It seems I will returtn to the game this year ...


  • AlcuinAlcuin Broken State, CAPosts: 313Member Uncommon
    The only problem I see here is that the Forgotten Realms deserves its own separate game. Still, I thinks it's a good thing.

    I wonder if they are drawing on Salvatore's work much or at all.

    I thought they weren't allowed to go anywhere near the Forgotten Realms setting due to the licensing agreement? Or is there a 'Underdark', in Eberron as well?


    Must admit I'm a tad confused, intrigued, but confused, and by 'intrigued', I mean I third on the crapping pants stage.

    This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

    Everyone is saying they want a forgotten realms D&D MMO.. everyone forgetting about Neverwinter?

  • DjehwtyDjehwty New York, NYPosts: 9Member Common

    All I can say is "Druids? Finally!!!" =P

  • RobsolfRobsolf Grand Rapids, MIPosts: 4,262Member Uncommon

    Man, that's AWESOME news!  Much as I tried, I could never get into the Ebberon setting.  Not in DDO, not in PnP.  Just too much magic and funky races(fortunately, the silliest of them aren't in DDO).

    Big question though, is, am I gonna have to be 20th level to get to FR?

  • MeltdownMeltdown Home, NHPosts: 1,179Member Uncommon

    Wow, DDO is looking better and better. Although did everyone just read the part about Forgetten Realms, pitch a tent and stop reading? Cosmetic pets... wtf? This seems like a cash shop square peg being forced into a round hole... maybe I'm just too removed from the game now to see where it has gone since I left...

    might be a bit scary ,(minion in there tend to be unseeable and tend to want to eat everything around them lol

    Umm...  I'm not a 'huge fan' but even I know that the goddess' name is 'Lolth'  not 'Lloth'.
