Turbine has released details for the upcoming Update 5 for Dungeons and Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited. DDO originally launched as a pay to play game but shed its mandatory subscription last year. Since then, the game has attracted millions of players and has distinguished it self as one of the best free to play games now available.

Update 5 is titled ‘Rise of the Guilds’ and places a strong emphasis on these player run organizations. The larger a guild grows, the more levels, power, and treasure its members will be able to claim together. Guilds will be able to purchase Airships which act as floating bases. Airships will house taverns, rest shrines, auctioneers, and more.

Several new dungeon scenarios will also be added included in the new ‘Carnival of Shadow’ adventure pack. Class, skill, spell, and hireling updates have also been announced. Players should check out the full release below for a list of all upcoming changes!
