Dungeons & Dragons Online: Menace of the UnderdarkBreaking news today for DDO! We’ve got Update 13 and a new DDO Expansion featuring the Forgotten Realms Setting and the Underdark! Looks like our speculation in episode 244 wasn’t too far off the mark!

Summary of New Features for DDO Sixth Birthday Update #13:

  • Release date is February 22nd!
  • New cosmetic pets!  – Like last year’s crafting system introduction, the cosmetic pet system will be rolled out over time.  Gotta collect them all!
  • A new  adventure pack that opens the door to the new storyline, Menace of the Underdark. This will serve as the beginning  of how Eberron and Forgotten Realms (Faerun) are connected.
