Turbine's preparing to
release Menace of the Underdark, the first expansion of its type for
Dungeons & Dragons Online since the game's release way back in
2006. The new content expands the game's world to include the
Forgotten Realms, scene of some of D&D's most beloved content and
setting for no shortage of pulpy paperbacks with unspeakably bitchin'
covers. Take a look at these shots and see if you can't imagine a
dwarf standing on a pile of flaming skulls somewhere in there.
Menace of the Underdark adds
the Forgotten Realms and titular cave-world to the game (these shots
are from the Forest Cavern, the new content's starting region). It
also bumps up the level cap and adds the shapeshifting Druid to the
lineup of available character classes. The content's dated for June
25, and will be available in three different Editions ranging from
the bare-bones $29 Base Edition to the $79 Collector's Edition,
including an impressive surfeit of bonus items which you can read
about at the pack's page.
