Neverwinter’s Underdark expansion hits PCs on November 17

    
11
The eighth expansion for NeverwinterUnderdark — will release on November 17th for PC users. Xbox One players will see it sometime in early 2016. As you might guess from the name, you’ll be venturing into the Underdark and you may even choose to fight a two-headed demon lord called a Demogorgon alongside nine other players and Forgotten Realms stalwart Drizzt Do’Urden.

Drizzt’s creator, author R.A. Salvatore, penned one of the expansion’s quest lines, and Underdark also includes the ability to visually preview new gear as well as a new stronghold plot location and PvP tower. Click past the cut for an interview video with Salvatore and Neverwinter devs.

teppic If EQ2 gets to call its shitty little Underdark rip-off an expansion, then so does NW lol.

FeveredDreamer Rozyn Yeah I’m lvl 62 right now on a character I made like 2 weeks ago, no runes, green gear, and I just casually log in to do my dailies. I don’t grind, I don’t PVP, just run dailies, a dungeon, maybe a skirmish and then log out. I did buy a month of VIP since I want to support them going in that direction and it’s the only way I’ll ever get lockbox keys. I know the game has issues, but honestly if someone is a casual player it’s quite fun and my favorite MMO combat system to date. I’m so done with the anti-P2W activism – it’s a game, I’m having fun, fuck it.

A new (small) map with a set of yet more dailies to grind and a skirmish is a stretch to call an expansion.

Rozyn Yep, folks hate on it tons but Neverwinter is definitely a blast to play.  The only time folks run into problems is when they start trying to be “competitive” Aside from my initial purchase (got one of the founders packs) I’ve not spent any money on this game since and frankly I’ve never had a hard/unenjoyable time.

I know this game comes with as many caveats as one can muster, but I’m playing it right now….. and god help us all….. I’m having fun. Looking forward to Underdark someday. I only log in and run my dailies so I probably won’t even be lvl 70 by then, maybe I’ll get to experience it next year lol. The Halloween event going on is quite nice, free artifact thingy (I think it’s called?) and decorated city prettiness.

Its a Neverwinter article, so the MOP hate brigade and trolls are out in force. If you’re a new player actually interested in this game or a fan or Salvatore and/or DnD; this game is a lot of fun, has a ton of players and content(all for free) and this expansion is looking to add a lot of good stuff for us to do. Check out the website.

Never ceases to amaze me that this game not only exists, and is still played… but it’s apparently successful enough to warrant multiple expansions.

I cant believe Salvatore would be involved with this garbage, it doesn’t use a d&d ruleset, its f2p, its cryptic, its pw….theres a reason Atari dumped this, they wanted a newer nwn not this pile.

Normally I’d point out that it’s not a demongorgon it’s THE demogorgon but considering neverwinter is just a pile of little instances I guess “a” was more accurate :/
