European DDO will become F2P and transferred to Turbine

July 20, 2010 3 comments

I received an email that the European DDO that is run by CodeMasters now will be transferred over to Turbine. Thus the European side will now also play the F2P version of DDO instead of the pure subscription-based one.

The FAQ here provide some details about the transfer.

I think this is about time. When I wanted to try out the new DDO I went to the European web site, only to realize that they were still running with the old business model. As CodeMasters’ license to run the game now expires, it seems Turbine wants to run it all by themselves. August 20 is the date from which people can start play under Turbine regime.
