DDO Shows off the Beautiful Stormhorn Mountains
Dungeons & Dragons Online, Turbine's MMORPG based on the classic pen and paper RPG, is prepping for its new Shadowfall Conspiracy expansion, which is expected to launch on August 19. In the meantime, though, Turbine is showing off some new screenshots to get our mouths watering.
The newest batch shows the Stormhorn mountains, a new area located on the western and northern borders of Cormyr that players will be able to explore once the expansion goes live. But don't let the beauty of this area fool you, the wilderness is full of things to fear, including "dangerous wild creatures and scattered tribes of orcs, giants, and gnolls."
An official press release gives us a few details about the lore of this area: "The mountain range has long served as a protective barrier for Cormyr, keeping the kingdom’s enemies at bay. Yet now the empire of Netheril, Cormy’s enemy to the northwest, threatens to dominate the Stormhorn mountains. The Netherese have formed the mountain tribes into armies and built forts to house their new forces in. The Netherese seem especially interested in one particular glacier, where they are searching for something hidden deep within the ice."
Take a look at a few of the screenshots for yourself, and salivate as you wait impatiently for August 19.
