Yesterday's news that Dungeons and Dragons Online would be switching to a free-to-play model this summer only applies to North America, much to the chagrin of European fans.
Following Turbine's announcement that the game would soon be going free-to-play in North America, European operator Codemasters posted a message on the European site for the game, informing players that, for the time being things would not be changing across the pond.
To clarify, for the time being, DDO Europe will not be assuming this new business model and the European DDO game service will remain a monthly subscription-based game with all new content created available to all subscribers, as has been the model up until now. As the Beta progresses we will release more information regarding the future plans for EU players.
To clarify, North Americans can continue to be excited, while Europeans should proceed with worrying about what's going on in their continent. It could still happen!
