Neverwinter announces its next major update, Underdark
Neverwinter is heading into a dark place with its next major update. Darker than dark, even. Tenatively dubbed Neverwinter: Underdark, the next module will bring players into the eponymous Underdark, exploring kingdoms of Drow and featuring a questline written by well-known fantasy author R. A. Salvatore. Yes, you’ll be fighting alongside Drizz’t. You knew that was coming, don’t pretend you didn’t.

The module is scheduled for release in 2015 on PC, with a console release to follow. More is in the works for players before the next module, however; there will be more fixes to the Elemental Evil content, as well as an update before the module featuring guild housing. All of it is exciting stuff for Neverwinter fans.

This sentence: “you’ll be fighting alongside Drizz’t” makes me install this game and play, play, play.
Like a dream come true – I fantasized about his when reading RA Salvatore’s books.
Brilliant!

Bannex19 The underdark, sure. But why does it always have to be that underdark means its drizzt time? The underdark is a much more varried place than “drizzt vs the drow”

MilitiaMasterV Feydakin I think I have it somewhere, maybe my Steam library… I have a backlog the likes of which the Gods have never seen. ;)

DanielReasor Feydakin Really? That infuriates me because it’s so anti-consumer… Such a parasitic business model.

Bannex19 What? Wildstar cloned WoW 10 times over? (Hey you did say it’s “ten times the game SWToR is, and SWToR is just WoW with a Star Wars skin and a bunch of cutscenes that are great once, but loose lustre fast  on Alts and other replayable content.)
How is that a good thing?

Rage of Demons brings renowned D&D hero Drizzt Do’Urden to Sword Coast Legends and Neverwinter


According to which, this is (like EE was) the Neverwinter implementation of WOTC’s ongoing storyline. So, if anyone feels negatively about the use of Drizzt (or Minsc and Boo), blame WOTC! :D

Bannex19 SHHHH! get out of here with your logic! its all unimaginative and boring! Studios should buy IP’s like Star Trek and then make it a Fantasy MMO with dragons and wizards!!

But the whole point of obtaining an established ip is for big names to attract players.
Look at Wildstar vs swtor, Wildstar is ten fold the game swtor is but because the ip is purely original it got flamed for trivial endgame mechanics that could’ve been and were easily fixed but is still struggling.
Swtor is worse than rift even though its newer, it has terrible optimization, loading screens, unbalanced PvP even though there are 4 classes, dumb overly simplistic housing and horrible retread combat. However, because of the ip it blows Wildstar away

Styopa Damonvile Feydakin I have always gotten the vibe that when the game was 99.974% finished, someone from marketing walked up to the devs and had the following converstation …

Marketing – “Great news, we just got the DnD license!”
Developer – “Um, but the game is pretty much done and has nothing, at all, to do with DnD”
Marketing – “Isn’t that great news? The DnD license!”
Developer – “You are not listening to me, are you? The game has nothing to do with DnD!”
Marketing – “Yep, score one for us. Whew!  High fives!  Boo-ya! DnD!”
Developer – ./facepalm
