Season passes aren't just for PvP games any more. Standing Stone Games has announced a season pass for Dungeons & Dragons Online that lasts for two years, is available in limited quantities, and offers rewards beyond the typical VIP subscription.
The DDO Season Pass goes for a cool $299 and lasts for two years -- basically all of 2019 and 2020. For your investment, which breaks down to $12.50 per month, you'll get all VIP perks, such as 500 DDO Points per month and bonus XP, along with the usual VIP-only content. (Notably, expansions are not included in this deal.) However, once your Season Pass expires -- all the way in 2021 -- you'll get to keep that content, even if you're not a VIP any more. You also get a daily free gold dice roll, the Silver Dragon armor cosmetic set, and a Heroic Otto's Box, which goes for 4,995 DDO Points.
The catch is that only 1,000 DDO Season Passes are being offered. They'll be put up for sale starting Dec. 7 at 12:00 p.m. Eastern and stop being offered on Dec. 16 at 11:59 p.m. Once they're gone, they're gone -- unless more are somehow made available through the magic of technology.
Right now, you can purchase a full year as a VIP in DDO for $99, so it's two years for $198. The 4,995 Points needed for the Heroic Otto's Box would run you another $50. That's $248 total. The extra $51 the Season Pass costs you would net you the gold rolls, armor set, and the ability to keep all your perks afterwards if you didn't keep up your VIP subscription.
But who is this for? If you're committed enough to buy the Season Pass, you're probably going to keep your VIP membership up in perpetuity. Is the extra loot, and the fact that you're "locked in" for two years, worth the extra $51? At the very least, expansions should be included in the cost of the Season Pass. Without that, the Season Pass would be a pass for me, at least. What do you think?
