Turbine Reveals Details of
Upcoming D&D Online Unlimited Content
Turbine, Inc. today unveiled the new
content coming to Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited (DDO Unlimited).
Launching later this summer, DDO Unlimited will introduce an innovative new
pricing model that allows players to download and play for free, purchasing
adventure packs, items, and account services a la carte from the new DDO Store,
or to subscribe to get unlimited access to all of the game’s content. Players
interested in getting a sneak peak of the new DDO Unlimited can sign up for a
chance to participate in the Beta program at
The new upgrades to DDO Unlimited
New Player Class: Players can now
create characters using DDO Unlimited’s newest class, Favored Soul. Favored
souls draw on divine magic to both heal and destroy. Like clerics, favored
souls have access to powerful healing spells, but they are also more skilled
with weapons than any other spell caster. Like sorcerers, they get a larger
number of spell points than other spell casters and cannot freely switch
spells at taverns or rest shrines.
Raised Level Cap: Players can now
advance to 20th-level under the D&D® rules. This includes access to new arcane
and divine spells, new character abilities, feats, and skills.
New Adventure Packs:
The Plane of Battle — Players
can now travel to the Plane of Shavarath and explore a large wilderness area
as they try to infiltrate several fortresses and upset the carefully laid
plans of the Devils.
The Crime Syndicate — Coin Lord
Yorrick Amanatu, who controls the Stormreach Guard, wants players to help
him eliminate the growing Sharn Syndicate presence in Stormreach.
The Fiercest Combat – This update
introduces some exciting enhancements to DDO’s extraordinary combat experience
including a new combat feedback and smart targeting system that gives players
even more information and control that lets them fully engage in the battle by
relying on their wits and reflexes in real time.
Mind-blowing Visuals – Explore
DDO’s vivid and dangerous online world featuring some of the most advanced
graphics in the industry with the fully deployed DX10 technology that brings
the world to life.
The Return of the Marketplace! –
Last year, Turbine held a spectacular live in-game event that resulted in the
complete destruction of the Stormreach Marketplace. The Coin Lords have
completed their beautification project and the once desolated Market has been
restored to its days as a center for trade, entertainment, and welcome to all
who come to Stormreach!
