DDO: Menace of the Underdark Launches with New Lolth Trailer

Turbine Entertainment pushed the first expansion to Dungeon & Dragons Online live today. The company is celebrating its moment with an all-new trailer featuring the main antagonist of Menace of the Underdark, the Demon Queen of Spiders Lolth.

The entrance of Lolth brings the drow race, previously added to the game during the transition to the F2P model, to their evil roots and will make up the majority of fodder. Arachnophobes beware, the expansion brings numerous spider-based mobs, including the creepy drider.

Hit the jump for the shortlist of features and two interviews highlighting the addition of epic levels and the new druid class.
