Neverwinter (2)

There's a new module coming to the free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons MMORPG Neverwinter, and it's been revealed as "Northdark Reaches." The module is being penned by D&D iconic author R.A. Salvatore and Geno Salvatore. However, this is just the first part of the story they've written and players will receive the second part in the future.

In this update, players will discover that far beneath the storied mountains of Faerûn lie the Northdark Reaches, a sprawling frontier that skirts the Underdark’s fallen civilization of Ched Nasad. It is in this deadly and forgotten place that Braelin Janquay, a friend of dwarven king Bruenor Battlehammer, and one of Bregan D’aerthe’s most illustrious drow scouts, has gone missing. Players will need to descend into a whole new region of Underdark in order to help King Bruenor and uncover the secrets behind the looming drow civil war.

The Northdark Reaches module marks just the beginning for the darkness that’s yet to come, and next year will bring forth the epic conclusion to this new storyline.

Heroes brave enough to answer King Bruenor’s call for aid will discover plenty of new content within Neverwinter, including the first persistent Underdark Adventure Zone. Players will discover new quests, fight challenging bosses – including heroic encounters -- and unearth helpful gadgets as they explore epic locations across the Northdark Reaches in the Underdark of Faerûn.

Longtime veteran players and new players can also look forward to a major update for the “Temple of the Spider” Dungeon as the new version will feature new bosses, enemies, rewards, along with Normal and Master difficulty options. Community members will be happy to learn that their requested changes to the Wizard class have been heard, and will be included in the new module.

Neverwinter is available on PC and is free to play digitally on Xbox and PlayStation consoles. Players who want to download and play Neverwinter can do so here.
