Underwater combat coming to DDO

ENTERTAINMENT - If you're a fan of MMORPGs like the World of Warcraft (WoW) or Dungeons & Dragons Online (DDO) then you're in luck. Update 6 for Dungeons & Dragons Online is introducing a whole new realm of underwater combat.

Fighting sea monsters in their own realm on a 3-dimensional zone where you can swim above, below and around the monster while hacking at it with your +3 holy, pure good greatsword has never been done before. Or at least, never been done on a computer before.

Update 6 introduces "a vile swamp of death and terror lurking beneath the waters" known as the Red Fens. In it players can hunt for lost treasure, pearls, evade deadly traps, raid a sunken temple, kills hordes of Sahuagin (fish people that look a bit like piranhas) and battle swamp monsters and sea monsters, the likes of which are usually only imagined in "Pen and Paper" Dungeons & Dragons games.

The Red Fens adventure zone includes 4 new quests: Fathom the Depths, Into the Deep, The Claw of Vulkoor, The Last Stand and 12 new rare monsters, including a Will-o-Wisp, a giant Scrag troll, a water elemental, a carnivorous plant, an abishai devil and a really angry hill giant. All just waiting to be defeated.

And if you're worried about money the good news is that DDO is free to try. You don't have to spend any money to play Dungeons & Dragons Online, but you will need a nice graphics card on your computer.
