Executive Producer's Letter to Players

Executive Producer's Letter to Players -

DDO Executive Producer Fernando Paiz addresses the community in this latest Letter to the Players. The letter discusses the boom in activity DDO has seen since the launch of the free-to-play model with Eberron Unlimited, and gets into details on Update 1, the game's first update since its relaunch.

Update 1 will allow players to create new characters at Level 4 which is known as "Veteran Status", which can be unlocked with 1000 favor, and a new Epic difficulty setting for the game's instanced dungeons.

Launching alongside Update 1 will be a new high-level adventure pack called "The Path of Inspiration," which pit players against a nefarious cult that is kidnapping Stormreach's citizens and trapping them in the plane of nightmares. The new pack will also feature a number of new environments, monsters, and gameplay elements.

Also mentioned in the letter is an upcoming feature known as Reincarnation. Reincarnation will allow players some interesting options with their characters, ranging from anything to the long-demanded re-spec option, to allowing players some sort of end-game reroll.

Find out more on what's in store for DDO in the full letter.

I spent some time with my friends in DDO this weekend. Free definitely lowers the barrier to entry, and we had a pretty good time!

Have you tried out DDO since it went free-to-play? If so, how was your experience? Let us know in the comments!
