Happy Tuesday, who wants some new Neverwinter content? Fans will be waiting until August 13th for the game’s next big thing to drop for PC, but it is indeed coming, and it’s called… Uprising. It’s a free-to-play Forgotten Realms-based update that’ll drop the new playable Gith race, a 10-man endgame raid, new PvP content, and a retooled early game experience for new players.

“The conflict between the Illithid and the Gith erupts within the caverns of Undermountain, offering players the unique opportunity to challenge Halaster Blackcloak in an endgame, 10-player trail when he emerges to deal with these threats to his realm. Adventurers’ extended stay in Undermountain was very prosperous for Protector’s Enclave, leading to renovations across the city. Users setting forth into Protector’s Enclave and beyond will also find an updated Early Game experience – with adjustments made to several zones and stories. Following the class optimizations in Undermountain, players can look forward to an all-new PvP map and gear to earn. Finally, a Fashion system overhaul will keep adventurers looking their best, and an additional ‘Tales of Old’ event will revive more dungeons from the past- giving players more dungeons than before – binding form and function.”

The update will mark Neverwinter’s 17th (!) major module. Console release dates are still to be announced.

Is the new race B2P or Free?

Probably B2P.

Dragonborn, Moonelf, and Drow were all B2P

I read on one of their official announcements that for a limited time after release, you’ll be able to create a new Gith character for free. After the limited window closes, you’ll have to buy it if you want to create a Gith.
