I like the art direction. Looks gritty.

Looks great, I'll start playing it three months after launch when it goes free-to-play.

After what they did to STO I'm wondering what all they'll be doing to screw up this IP.

Looks like it's free to play from the start.

I figure it'll launch with great character customization, but we'll have to wait for a year or so to get a decent amount of content.

Then I guess I will be playing on Day 1. I'm not sure I would pay for extra content, but what I see in that trailer looks pretty good. If the DLC packs aren't that expensive I could see myself buying a new adventure or two.

This is interesting to me conceptually. Launch a free-to-play MMO game engine, and sell content packs and/or the ability to create user-generated-content. That makes for an interesting business model that I can see succeeding. Allow the players to pick and choose what parts of the game they want to pay for

The same boring gameplay, different skin. The mmo genre needs a serious reboot.

It does, but what would you do? We have seen with Call of Duty that you can't turn a FPS into a MMO just by offering people early access to additional content.

I can probably come up with a laundry list of "features" that current MMO's lack -- player housing, boats, better character customization -- but it wouldn't change the core idea of grind, grind, grind.

Ultima Online is still alive man. You have houses you can design. There are boats of various sizes to include naval warfare. You can customize a character between three difference races and about 100 skills and all sorts of looks.

The end of what was a promising series of games.

EDIT: After watching the trailer... yuk. Animations are terrible, heck graphics as a whole are years old. The audio was nothing to write home about. Anyone know what edition ruleset it's using?

Generally, I didn't see anything in there that might entice me to want to do anything with the game much less ditch WoW or STOWR.

Best loot ever.
I was sad when they took away the ability to make jerky out of peoples legs.

Knowing Cryptic it will go free-to-play before it leaves beta.

This was announced as F2P from the beginning.

The only thing that changed was going from a co-op RPG to a full-blown MMO after PWE acquired Cryptic.

Either way, they need to tighten their animations. Outside of that, I'm down.

What attempt number for a D&D MMO is this? 3, I believe.

Regardless, until WOTC finishes 5th edition there is no reason to have interest in the IP. 4th has almost killed the game and its community is only sticking together by playing a fanmade, wannabe 3.75. The ruleset just isn't deep enough to make an MMO-grind interesting.
