Shadowfell Conspiracy Pre-Order

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE®: SHADOWFELL CONSPIRACY™ TO LAUNCH AUGUST 19th

Players Can Pre-Purchase Latest Expansion To The Award-Winning MMORPG
Starting Today

NEEDHAM, MA – May 22, 2013 – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Wizards of the Coast announced today Dungeons & Dragons Online®: Shadowfell Conspiracy™, the second expansion to the award-winning free-to-play massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) developed by Turbine, will launch on August 19th, 2013. Shadowfell Conspiracy takes place in the beloved Forgotten Realms® setting, features an increased level cap and introduces new Iconic Heroes and much more.

“We’re excited to share our launch date with the world and introduce the new Iconic Classes system that will be available immediately to anyone that pre-purchases Shadowfell Conspiracy,” said Erik Boyer, Senior Producer of DDO.  “We’re also making new Forgotten Realms content that will enable players to create a level 15 character in the Forgotten Realms and play all the way to level cap.”

“Turbine continues to release great content for DDO, and we are thrilled that Dungeons & Dragons fans have another great expansion coming this August,” added Nathan Stewart, Brand Director for D&D at Wizards of the Coast.

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE: SHADOWFELL CONSPIRACY FEATURES:

  • Two New Forgotten Realms Adventure Packs — Featuring gorgeous new wilderness areas packed with new D&D® monsters, dangerous encounters and a host of challenging dungeons.
    • Wheloon:  Horrors from the Shadowfell pour into Wheloon, a prison city full of irredeemable criminals and traitors to the Crown. In this place, Netherese agents conspire to forge an army out of the Kingdom’s enemies. Masquerade as a traitor to infiltrate the Prison City, fight marauding criminal gangs, and destroy the army before it marches – all the while battling creatures made out of the very shadows.
    • Stormhorns:  Deep in the Stormhorn Mountains, the Netherese Empire prepares to unleash its secret weapon against the Kingdom of Cormyr. Brave treacherous mountain passes through griffon territory and overcome cunning harpy ambushes. At the peaks of the mighty Stormhorns, overcome an alliance of giants and monstrous creatures – only to have to contend with a terrible Netherese secret weapon.
  • Introducing Iconic Heroes — Jump into the action of DDO with these new prestige characters that start in Forgotten Realms at level 15 and feature unique looks and skills. Each of these classic D&D heroes is a paragon of their race and class and features custom iconic gear, appearance options and new abilities to enhance their power.
