Dungeons & Dragons Online News - Menace of the Underdark Preview

Posted by Michael Bitton on Feb 27, 2012  | Comments

This summer, Dungeons & Dragons Online enters the Forgotten Realms with the launch of the Menace of the Underdark expansion. Read on for a full overview of the content and pre-order bundles!

The launch of Menace of the Underdark will represent a pretty significant event for Dungeons & Dragons Online, as the expansion will bring the game into the popular D&D setting of the Forgotten Realms. Today’s launch of Update 13: Web of Chaos will serve as a prologue for the expansion, explaining just how the essentially separate dimensions of Eberron and the Forgotten Realms are connected and why players will be continuing their adventures in Faerûn. The basics of the way Turbine is tying the two settings together involves the Forgotten Realms’ deity, Lolth, who is coordinating with the Spinner of Shadows, her aspect in the world of Eberron, to acquire certain shards of power only found there. This whole scheme and the events that ultimately play out as part of Update 13 result in the creation of a portal from Lolth’s lair in the Demon Web into the world of Eberron, and players will eventually cross through this portal (and the Demon Web itself) in order to get to the Forgotten Realms.
