With the move to F2P, DDO raised its profits a 500%. As other games that have gone or are going the same route, DDO makes use of an Online Shop. You can play for free all the way, of purchase the ingame currency via using real $$ or through your performance in the game: Some quests will give you cash to spend in the Online Shop.
Let me repeat: DDO is completely playable without paying, but you'll have to get the items through your own effort.
DDO's ratings are pretty good. Some people complain that its graphics are not jaw dropping, but for a former Eternal Lands player even Farmville's graphics rock.
Have a look at the video to get an idea of:
- • Character creation
- • Trainer
- • Shopping
- • Random gameplay
