WESTWOOD, MA – August 16, 2006 – Turbine, Inc. announced today the release of the third content module for DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™ (DDO), the first and only massively multiplayer online (MMO) roleplaying game based on the world-renowned DUNGEONS & DRAGONS® brand franchise from Wizards of the Coast, Inc., a subsidiary of Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS). The Litany of the Dead Part One module pits players against Brother Salasso, the fearsome Vampire. Turbine will offer the Litany of the Dead Part One module free of charge for all current DDO subscribers. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS is under license from the Hasbro Properties Group, the intellectual property development arm of Hasbro.

"We've been very busy since the launch of DDO adding content and improving features in the game," said Jeffrey Anderson, president and CEO of Turbine, Inc. "The Litany of the Dead is the first of a three part story that delivers epic quests, fearsome monsters and one of the best MMO experiences available today."

The Litany of the Dead Part One module features five compelling new dungeons that provide a variety of additional content for advanced players in the game, including surprises around every corner that will challenge the most jaded adventurer. The Litany of the Dead Part One is the first in a series of three planned modules that will provide new content and features for DDO. Turbine will continue to release additional modules over time that add new content, features, and other improvements to the hit MMOG.

Published by Atari, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATAR), DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE has been enthusiastically received by many gaming critics, including The New York Times, PC Gamer, Game Informer and many more.

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE: Stormreach recreates the essence of the classic pen-and-paper roleplaying experience - with an emphasis on non-grinding, instanced quests that provide a unique, immersive experience for each party. Authentic features in the game include customizable characters; dungeons filled with devious traps; monsters and stories from the Eberron® campaign setting; an on-screen d20 (20-sided die) and a dungeon master. The unique online world of Stormreach™ is a bustling city with thousands of players from around the world. It represents a new paradigm for the MMO genre with unique features including party-based quests, integrated voice chat, real-time action combat, and award winning graphics.

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE: Stormreach is currently available online and in retail stores for $49.99. Additional information can be found at www.ddo.com.
