Neverwinter’s 24th module, Northdark Reaches is available now for free on PC (Arc Games, Epic Games Store and Steam) and PlayStation and Xbox consoles. This epic new adventure takes place between Starlight Enclave and Glacier’s Edge. This new module will allow players for the first time ever to encounter beloved characters from Dungeons & Dragons’ Forgotten Realms, such as the myconid Rumpadump, Saribel Xorlarrin Do’Urden and Minolin Fey, as they explore a new region of the Underdark.

In Neverwinter: Northdark Reaches, 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. Players will need to help King Bruenor and uncover the secrets behind the looming Drow civil war as they descend into a whole new region of Underdark. The Northdark Reaches module marks just the beginning of the darkness that’s yet to come, as the next module – launching next year – will bring the epic conclusion to this new storyline.

“I was thrilled to team up again with the Neverwinter team at Cryptic,” said R.A. Salvatore, New York Times bestselling author. “Working with the team for the Neverwinter’s 8th module, Underdark, was fantastic, so when the team asked if I wanted to work with them on a new two-part adventure for the game, I gladly accepted the opportunity. Being able to expand the Way of the Drow universe within the game was something I couldn’t pass up. I hope all Neverwinter players, especially those Drow and Way of the Drow fans, enjoy embarking on this new adventure and getting to experience the beginning of what’s to come!”

“I love writing stories for games, so when the opportunity to help write this new adventure for Neverwinter was presented to us I absolutely wanted to work on it,” said Geno Salvatore, co-author of the Stone of Tymora trilogy and The Legend of Drizzt graphic novel series. “Northdark Reaches is my first experience working on Neverwinter, but it was incredible working with the team on it as they’re able to take so many different parts of D&D and put them in the game so well. I’m excited for fans to dive into Northdark Reaches and see for themselves how it’s a love letter to the D&D and Way of the Drow universe.”

“Collaborating with R.A. Salvatore and Geno Salvatore on Northdark Reaches has been a dream come true for the Neverwinter team,” said Winter Mullenix, Narrative Director for Neverwinter. “Our designers and artists worked very hard to bring this exciting new region of the Underdark to life, and I personally cannot wait for players to experience the stories we crafted together.”

Northdark Reaches brings with it a new adventure, new campaigns, new quests, and new rewards. Players can even go up against new bosses that are deadlier than ever like the drow warden Levira Vandree, or the drider llvara Mizzrym. Lastly, players will be able to experience the remastered “Temple of the Spider'' dungeon.

Neverwinter fans are sure to enjoy Northdark Reaches and can look forward to the epic conclusion still to come.
