The eighth expansion for Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios' free-to-play MMO Neverwinter is available on the PC starting today. Unfortunately, Xbox One players will have to wait until early 2016 to get in on the action.

The new expansion teams players up with Drizzt Do'Urden to take on the Prince of Demons, Demogorgon, in a 10-player encounter. A full list of new features includes:

  • 10-player encounter with the two-headed demon lord, Demogorgon
  • Adventure alongside iconic Dungeons & Dragons characters including Drizzt Do’Urden, Bruenor Battlehammer and Regis in a new questline, “The Dwarven King”, written by New York Times Best-Selling Author R.A. Salvatore
  • All-new campaign including new in-game rewards inspired by the Rage of Demons storyline from Wizards of the Coast
  • Mantol-Derith, a new non-combat adventurer hub found in the Underdark
  • Two new end-game skirmishes, each with two different ways to achieve victory
  • Rifts in the Abyssal plane now summon Demonic encounters throughout the Sword Coast adding variety to open-world Heroic Encounters
  • Updates to the Trade Bar Store allowing easier access to items and economy adjustments
  • Gear Preview allows players to see how all equippable items will look on their characters
  • Additional Strongholds content including a new resource plot and PvP tower
  • Artifact weapons can be reforged into new artifact weapons via double refinement above rank 15
  • Masterwork Items now obtainable from endgame Professions tasks
  • Boons tied to successfully quelling demonic presence in the Underdark campaign

It's a bit of a pretty massive stretch to call it an expansion.

It has no new zones. No new dungeons.

The new quest line consists for 5 minute 'adventures' used completely recycled maps. It's an hour or so of content at best. The new skirmishes are almost funny they're so bad. You run around in circles killing the same mobs over and over again until the timer runs out. That's it. Other than that you get yet more Heroic Encounters (these are not new content, they're fighting a bunch of mobs in existing places).

It's probably the least impressive expansion of any MMO I've seen. Which is unfortunate, as the content that game launched with was generally excellent.
