Neverwinter: Underdark brings the Rage of Demons storyline from Wizards of the Coast to life on the Xbox One. The expansion allows players and their friends to join forces with classic Dungeons & Dragons characters including Drizzt Do’Urden, Regis and Bruenor Battlehammer to face the two-headed Demogorgon and other terrors of the Abyss. This update for the free-to-play MMORPG includes all-new content such as the new hub zone of Mantol-Derith, two end-game skirmishes and “The Dwarven King,” a quest line written by New York Times Best-Selling Author, R.A. Salvatore, whose novel Archmage kicks off the Rage of Demons storyline. The full list of additions includes:
“With the all-new 10-player encounter against Demogorgon, Xbox One players have yet another large scale experience to play in with their friends. On top of diverse new experiences for players, Neverwinter is now closer to Dungeons & Dragons than ever before,” said Rob Overmeyer, executive producer of Neverwinter. “Creating adventures featuring iconic D&D heroes like Drizzt and Bruenor is an awesome opportunity, and Underdark wouldn’t be what it is without the integration of R.A. Salvatore’s story-telling and characters. Looking at 2016, we’re excited to continue strengthening our ties to D&D as well as delivering MMO experiences players want.”
