Title says it all, but curious to know if D&D online is in public beta or if you heard it will be at some point.

Anyone playing it? Liking it?

Aha! - this should help:

The arrival of the year's most highly-anticipated massively multiplayer game is less than two months away! Dungeons & Dragons™ Online: Stormreach™ will launch in North America on Tuesday, February 28th, 2006. European gaming enthusiasts also don't have much longer to wait. Dungeons & Dragons™ Online: Stormreach™ will release in the UK, France and Germany in March 2006.

Developed by Turbine and published by Atari, Dungeons & Dragons™ Online: Stormreach™ is the first and only massively multiplayer online roleplaying game based on the world-renowned Dungeons & Dragons™ brand franchise from Wizards of the Coast.

Dungeons and Dragons online? Wow... and I thought I've seen almost ever kind of board game online. :thumbsup:

I never really liked D&D or any game such like that... too much involvement.


Found this on the forums: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/43853/ddo-dungeons-dragons-online/

The European open beta ended last week, with a "killing" end event. :thumbsup:

Its way better than WOW, although I don't know how hardcore PnP D&D fans would like it. It's more of a action game than a slow, think-through-every-action kind of game. It still got a delicious D&D feel to it, so that I found myself digging up the Players Handbook to check details.


EDIT: Since the NDA is lifted I thought that I could share a screenshot. This is the best I have (Its from a run up walls bug report):

Is that a town? So whats the premise...you are in the city of storm reach and there are dungeons inside it and outside the walls?

Can you interact with the environment at all?

Yeah that's Stormreach, in the harbour area in fact (a level 1-2 area).
I'm standing atop a gatehouse where your not supposed to be able to go locking down on the Appretice Square where you find all the trainers. All quests and all monsters are in instances, which you can enter after getting the quest by talking to the right npc, which you can find in and around Stormreach. The harbour instaces are mostly sewer instaces dealing with kobolds that are infesting the harbour. Oh, and Turbine loves sewers, dungeons and basements as instaces.
