Turbine announced that a new digital expansion for MMORPG Dungeons and Dragons Online will arrive this summer. Dungeons And Dragons Online: Menace of the Underdark will be the first premium expansion to the game since it went free-to-play.
"Experience the classic fantasy and adventure of D&D's most imaginative and renowned setting. Arrive in the village of Eveningstar and adventure through the surrounding King's Forest wilderness area where the citizens of the nation of Cormyr must unite to face a new threat to the Realms," reads Underdark's website. "Come face to face with the Underdark Drow and Lolth, their Queen and goddess, as you explore this vast and twisted, subterranean world. Infiltrate the Drow stronghold of Sschindylryn - the city of portals - where Lolth's forces work to further her schemes."
Underdark is the first time that the MMO has featured the Forgotten Realms setting. The new level cap of 25 will give you additional incentive to embark on these adventures. Rounding out the expansion is the new Druid class.
We will plan to add more information and assets to the site over the next few months and also roll out some forums discussion threads and dev diaries to let you get a peek at some of our plans," said DDO executive producer Fernando Paiz on the game forums. "That is just the beginning of lots of good things coming to DDO in 2012! I hope you are as excited as we are for what we expect to be DDO's best year yet!"
Dungeons and Dragons Online went free-to-play in August 2009. Additional game content, such as races, adventure packs and character slots, can be purchased for real-world money. You can also pay an optional subscription and get unlimited access to all the game's features.
