Neverwinter explains what the deal is with the Underdark

WHAT ARE THOSE?!
The next Neverwinter expansion is sending players to the Underdark. All the way to the Underdark! Which is great if you know what the Underdark is and significantly less great if you’re mostly of the mind that it sounds vaguely like a metal band name. Not to worry, though; the official site has you covered with an explanation of just what the Underdark actually is, something that players might not have realized even with earlier adventures exploring bits of it.

Put simply, the Underdark is the labyrinth of caverns, tunnels, and underground lakes that stretch under the whole of Faerun. It’s home to countless creatures, magical and otherwise, and offers few protections for regular surface dwellers while also promising great power for those who can navigate its depths. Check out the full article for more details on this home of Drow and Illithid alike, the great underground wilderness.

Though Neverwinter is a game with plenty of flaws, as a D&D player I really think it is neat that the game’s new content is being synced with the current D&D Next campaigns.  I’m currently running “Princes of the Apocalypse” in tabletop, and find the Elemental Evil content in Neverwinter much more enjoyable as a result, similarly I find myself really looking forward to the Underdark material to come :D

Third game in a row with an underground expansion. Fall is apparently the season for spelunking.

I would actually play the crap out of this game if it weren’t for their f2p model
