Yeap, you didn’t see wrongly. Electronic Arts’ (EA) Dungeon Keeper, the single-player sleeper hit for the PC, is going online. The developer will be a Chinese studio, also known in the West as TQ Digital Entertainment. It seems like TQ Digital is rather interested in acquiring some big name franchise for their MMOs, having last snagged rights for the Disney-inspired Fantasy Disney Online and Heroes of Might and Magic Online.
While not much is revealed, the game will be in full 3D. Players will assume the role of an evil lord aimed at building their own underground dungeon empire. While on the surface, players can continue playing the game just like any other 3D MMO. Players will also encounter instances, level up, wear equipments and summon their minions (those you keep in your dungeon) for battles. Players can also launch attacks on others’ dungeons.
The only revealed playable race is the Demon race, while the company did say more races will be made available. There are no official screenshots yet, so stay tuned for more info.
