Codemasters have been selected to be the online service provider for Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach in Europe, including the servers, billing and customer support. The game, currently in development by Turbine, Inc., is based on Wizards of the Coast' Dungeons & Dragons RPG ruleset and will allow thousands of players to participate in a story-driven D&D campaign.

An all-new, in-depth website is currently being developed which will be launched in the very near future and will serve as the central hub for the Dungeons & Dragons Online community and will be the primary source of all things DDO!

"Turbine has an exceptional heritage in the MMO space and we are delighted to be its online operational partner for the European launch of Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach," commented Rod Cousens, CEO of Codemasters. "With outstanding experience in online community management, Codemasters is committed to expanding its activities in the MMO market and this agreement is testament to the expertise within our online gaming division."

"Hosting, community management and technical support are all vital to delivering a positive MMO game experience that brings players back again and again," said Rachel Hoagland, director of digital entertainment for the Hasbro Properties Group. "We are pleased to be working with Codemasters, a leader in online gaming, and Turbine, which has a track record of developing successful MMOs."
