EverQuest & H1Z1 company Daybreak suffer more layoffs

Daybreak Game Company, the H1Z1 and PlanetSide 2 mob formerly known as Sony Online Entertainment, have laid off an unconfirmed number of staff. It's the second wave of layoffs at Daybreak this year, and a real tough time to be laid off. It's the usual "optimising our structure" sort of reason. Daybreak say they'll continue to run their current and are working on new games…

MMoh: Asheron’s Call closing, D&D Online & Lord of the Rings Online leave Turbine

Oh! One newsbit we missed over Horacemas is the changes afoot at Turbine. The MMORPG specialists announced that they're closing down Asheron's Call, after seventeen years, and its sequel. Meanwhile, the teams behind Dungeons & Dragons Online and The Lord of the Rings Online have started their own new studio, Standing Stone Games, and taken the games with them. That leaves the remains of Turbine…

Eagle Punch! D&D Online: Shadowfell Conspiracy

I am once again reminded of the existence of a game by the announcement of an expansion. Dungeons & Dragons Online's shift to free-to-play years ago has given it enough success to keep quietly humming along, with the second expansion in seven years launching in the Summer. The Shadowfell Conspiracy is a content update, with new adventure packs (missions), monsters, and companions. It'll also bring…

After Six Years D&D Online Gets An Expansion

Something felt wrong when I glanced over the announcement of Dungeons & Dragons Online: Menace of the Underdark. I dismissed it as just another expansion pack for a free-to-play MMO, but that felt wrong. Digging around uncovered what was troubling me: DDO has never had an expansion pack. It was released in 2006 and went free-to-play three years later, but even then it's been a…

The MMOnitor: Dungeons & Dragons Online

Whilst we were down in the RPS dungeon, thrashing kobolds for copper pieces, we stumbled upon a group of MMO developers coming the other way through the Underdark. Sitting down by the light of our magic auras, we made a nice cup of elf-leaf and talked to Fernando Paiz, Executive Producer on Dungeons & Dragons Online (married to Kate Paiz, the executive producer on Lord…

Interview: DDO’s Menace Of The Underdark

Turbine (now part of Warner Bros, so essentially run by Bugs Bunny) has just announced the long overdue first expansion to Dungeons & Dragons: Online, Menace of the Underdark, six years after the game was first released. We've got more details below, excerpted from the coming Sunday's MMOnitor, but here's the stuff really worth noting: they're introducing a new class, new epic classes and moving…

Free Realm: Dungeons & Dragons Online Is Gratis

Turbine might be challenging their publisher Atari to a bout of fisticuffs about the fate and funding of Dungeons & Dragons Online, but such conflict has not delayed the re-release of said formerly underpopulated MMO as a free-to-play affair. Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited, as it's now known, can be had for the princely sum of no-pennies from here. There is, of course, a…

Neverwinter Online vs D&D Online Argy-Bargy

Something is rotten in the state of pretend online roleplaying universes. Atari, or at least what's left of it these days, remains license holder for most videogamilial adaptations of Dungeons & Dragons properties, most notably Forgotten Realms titles including Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights. They also publish the Turbine-developed Dungeons & Dragons Online, which is shortly to be relaunched as the free-to-play DDO Unlimited. Only…

Dungeons & Dragons: Still Online, Also Free

Have we ever posted about Dungeons & Dragons Online before? It's not an MMO that ever seems to make the headlines and, let's be honest, most of us either thought it was already closed or was living on borrowed time. In a fairly audacious move, it's instead gone free to play - rebranded as DDO Unlimited, and pitching itself as "the world’s first free-to-play MMO…
