D&D Online free trial

Role around for seven days.

Turbine's inviting MMO fans to try out Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach for seven days free of charge.

The free trial, which you can sign-up for it trial.ddo.com, allows you to build up a character for seven days and then lets you continue with that character in the full game if you decide to buy it.

D&DO, released in March, is a heavily instanced massively-multiplayer effort in which team-play - specifically, playing the role of your chosen character - is of paramount import.

Experience is accrued by besting entire dungeons, rather than by simply knocking off as many enemies as possible - although combat itself is a bit more involved than the usual click-auto-die routine prevalent in games of its type - and while soloing is virtually impossible for more than a couple of training missions, we reckoned it was well worth persisting with a trio of allies.

The seven-day trial's a good way to find out if you agree - and to find out how the game runs on your PC, which our reviewer felt might be an issue for those with mid-range hardware.
