Despite Neverwinter: Elemental Evil just receiving a release on Xbox One earlier this month, the newest Neverwinter expansion is already in the works. Sometime this fall, Neverwinter: Underdark, the game’s eight expansion, is scheduled to release for PC with the Xbox One launching following at a later date.
This upcoming Neverwinter expansion is set to take place in the Dungeons & Dragons’ Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast. Players will follow the Rage of Demons storyline and along with other content from the Forgotten Realms. The biggest reveal so far for Neverwinter: Underdark is a new 10-player encounter that lets players battle alongside Drizzt Do’Urden as he faces off against the powerful Demogorgon.
As the Prince of Demons, Demogorgon is a nasty two-headed monster that shouldn’t be trifled with. Other classic Dungeons & Dragons characters that will make their way into the story include Regis and Bruenor Battlehammer.
Before players are granted access to the new 10-player mission, they will have to complete a special quest line written by New York Times Best-Selling Author, R.A. Salvatore, who recently released a novel, Archmage, that takes place in the Rage of Demons story.
Neverwinter: Underdark will mark the eighth expansion in the Neverwinter free-to-play universe, which is available on both PC and Xbox One.
