DDO Roadmap

Producer Amanda "Tolero" Grow from Daybreak Games provided Dungeons & Dragons Online fans with a new letter addressing the game's 2023 Development Roadmap. Last year saw plenty of overhauls to existing features alongside fresh content bringing together the long-running game. 2023 will continue that momentum.

Players will be able to celebrate DDO's 17th anniversary with free content, introducing three new Archetypes and a dungeon for players to challenge. In addition, players could grab new anniversary armor planned for the year, and there's a new quest coming to set the stage for the Mini-Expansion arriving in the spring.

The expansion will send players to Morgrave University to help neutralize the adversaries created by Vecna. More information on the story and what content players can expect will come as the expansion gets closer. After that content goes live, a new Hardcore season will kick off in the summer with another ruleset switch up.

The producer discussed previously announced initiatives to reduce lag and improve game performance. The devs have been focusing on "the way the game communicates with itself" and making some of their "more complex systems more efficient behind the scenes." The focus here is to measure the impact of these factors and steadily improve upon them to reduce lag issues.

Ending off the blog, players will see a revamp to Droaam content and another Hardcore redux season in the latter half of the year.
