Check out the view of Toril through space from Neverwinter’s upcoming Stardock map

If you were expecting some kind of stock fantasy setting from Neverwinter’s upcoming Uprising module, well, first of all, you clearly missed the most horrifying cloak of all time, and that was a big clue. Either way, PWE is making it abundantly clear with its latest dev blog, which deep-dives parts of the modules new maps. And yeah, you’re kinda gonna be in space.

“The goal here was to give players something visually refreshing and something they wouldn’t expect,” PWE says of the new area, Stardock, which is not a euphemism, as you’re pretty much on an asteroidal space station looking down through the chasm of space upon the world. “Thanks to Halaster and the many portals in Undermountain, it gave us a great avenue for something unique. For the first time we get to look out onto the world in which we travel: Toril!” There’s a nifty crystal-encrusted arena as well.

“One of our main goals for this milestone was to let players not only see Toril, but Stardock also. We decided to create a few pieces of content that would share local space with Stardock, letting players see it in the vista while they crush enemies and players alike.”

Uprising retools the lowbie experience and adds the playable Gith class when it launches on August 13th.

They’ve missed the opportunity to show the Neverwinter’s flat Earth floating on three whales named after their best premium currency buyers.

The real question is what class will your STO Captains be when they beam down – I mean, they are announcing a big new direction for the game… :) (kidding – at least, I hope…)

I wouldnt mind a limited time event where PCs visited other mmos. I always imagined if there was a marvel mmo, they could do crossovers like the amalgamated universe.

Space and Forgotten Realms isn’t as out of reach as you may think…but it depends on which approach they are taking. will we, for example, be seeing robots and Rael refugees (a la Tales of the Comet which is more hard sci-fi) or will we be seeing Spelljammers for a more all in magic in space approach?

They could use the STO engine to make Spelljammer SO easily.. :)
