Turbine and Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach have announced that the first "module" containing new content, is going to be released to players free of charge. The module itself is called "Dragon's Vault":
March 14, 2006 - Turbine is pleased to announce the first module for DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™ (DDO). The Dragon’s Vault module will provide players the opportunity to battle the dangerous Vault of Night that is protected by a ferocious guardian – the red dragon! This module, scheduled for release in April, is the first in a series of planned modules that will provide new content and features for DDO, the hit MMOG that launched February 28th and quickly became the fastest growing MMOG in North America.
The Dragon’s Vault module contains 15 compelling dungeons and a new large-scale raid feature focusing on a vicious red dragon. The new dungeons provide a variety of additional content for players of all levels in the game. Turbine announced today that the Dragon’s Vault module will be free of charge for all current DDO subscribers as a way to say “thank you” to all of its fans. Turbine also declared its plans to release additional modules over time that include new content, features, and other improvements to the hit MMOG.
Early reviews for DDO are enthusiastic. GameDaily.com called it “the newest and best contender for the MMO king title since the release of World of Warcraft” and early impressions from GameSpot.com say the game “combines the beloved, tried-and-true D&D rules in an action-oriented massively multiplayer environment” that “looks and sounds quite impressive.”
Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach is currently available in retail stores for $49.99. Additional information and assets can be found at www.ddo.com.
