English Language Version and Limited Edition Launch in Europe; French and German to Follow with Advance Head Start Pre-Order Programme

LYON, FRANCE – 3 March 2006 – Atari announced that the English language version of Turbine’s DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™, the first massively multiplayer online (“MMO”) role-playing game inspired by the legendary pen and paper game, has launched today in Europe. The localized German and French versions of the title are on schedule to launch on March 23rd and 24th respectively.

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE: Stormreach is a unique experience where players must use their combat skills and wits to survive dangerous dungeons, fiendish traps and foes that punish the foolish. The game seamlessly combines the beautiful world of Eberron®, the classic D&D® v3.5 Edition rules, and the latest innovations in online technology into a breathtaking gaming experience like no other. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS® is under license from the Hasbro Properties Group, the intellectual property development arm of Hasbro, Inc.

“DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE: Stormreach offers fresh and exciting gameplay that captures the true spirit of the D&D adventures that we grew up with,” said Jeffrey Anderson, president and CEO of Turbine, Inc. “We are confident that the game will appeal to MMO gamers and D&D fans alike.”

“With the European Limited Edition and the advance head start programme for France and Germany we’ve worked hard to give the fans something special at launch,” said Cyril Voiron, Marketing Director, Atari Europe. “DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE: Stormreach is a magnificent milestone in online role-playing games and the first time D&D has been realized in the massively multiplayer online realm.”

“Players around the world will appreciate Turbine’s faithful adaptation of D&D’s party-based adventures - a system that has made the pen and paper game a powerful brand for over 30 years,” said Jeff Burdeen, vice president for the Hasbro Properties Group.

In addition to the standard game, the European DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE: Stormreach LIMITED EDITION will be available at selected retailers from launch. Packaged in a high quality aged-effect presentation box, the limited edition contains the full game, a guest pass which allows the player to invite a friend to join them in Eberron for five days, two CD’s containing artwork and music from the game, an A3 full colour poster and two collectible miniature D&D figurines. The game case also contains a playable demo of Atari’s recent D&D PC title Dragonshard.
