13-year-old Dungeons and Dragons Online opens Sharn expansion pre-orders next month

Superstitious or not, a 13th birthday for Dungeons and Dragons Online feels pretty darn lucky to us in this day and age. Standing Stone Games is celebrating the title’s birthday this week, the anniversary of which dates back to DDO’s launch on February 28th, 2006.

The 13th anniversary celebration is live, and if it’s anything like last year’s, it’ll open up a special questline that breaks the fourth wall in so many ways and gives you the opportunity to battle the developers themselves. The game’s going to be giving away freebies via codes starting on February 28th as well.

All in all, it’s a pretty exciting time to be a DDO fan, especially with the Sharn expansion on the near horizon. The pack, which is slated for this spring, was featured in a short teaser video that announced pre-orders will start in March.

The most authentic d&d mmo but they abandoned the realities of d&d mechanics ages ago.

Interesting storylines, and a number of features I do wish more modern AAA games would adopt…but a kludgy, painful ui. Does the whole game still hitch pretty much whenever anyone in your party opens their inventory?

Quite looking forward to having a reason to make another visit to DDO’s unique experience. It’s one of those MMOs that really stuck with me. I wish other developers would look to its penchant for puzzles, riddles, traps, narration, and character interaction for inspiration.

Plus, the writing overall is pretty decent.

If you haven’t tried Secret World Legends, it’s got a similar feel while questing with all the puzzles, riddles, and traps.

Here is the link on DDO’s website for the ‘Masterminds of Sharn’ expansion: https://ddo.com/en/20190225/

I just looked at their expansion timeline, and if I understand it correctly, it’s really weird. After 4 years, they released their first expansion in 2012 and another in 2013. Nothing till 2017. And this is their 4th? No shade. It actually seems suitably eccentric.

It may have also to do with when they split from Turbine

The game probably profited from the new popularity of DnD which is kinda going through a renaissance since tabletop streams became increasingly popular.

I enjoyed the game when I played last year. Which is surprising because I’m a bit of a UI snob and DDO’s UI is truly awful! :)

Fun game despite its age. I revisit it every few years
