Fans of the free MMORPG Neverwinter on Xbox may be pleased to hear that the eighth expansion for the long running Free-to-play title, Neverwinter: Underdark, will be available on Xbox February 9th this year. The fast paced combat and epic dungeons open up into new areas and any D&D fans will again spot some familiar faces in Drow Ranger Drizzt Do-Urden, Halfling Regis, and the ever gruff Dwarf Bruenor Battlehammer.
Descending into the Rage Of Demons storyline from Wizards Of The Coast, you’ll be fighting further demonic forces along the Sword Coast in Underdark, and fighting alongside Drizzt and the companions, as they battle the dreaded Demogorgon in 10-player encounters
The Rage of Demons story is kicked off with Archmage, the latest novel by NY Times Best-Selling author R.A. Salvatore, who also provides “The Dwarven King” storyline for Underdark (A Neverwinter Exclusive storyline), and in the new expansion you’ll find the new Hub Zone of Mantol-Derith, as well as two end-game skirmishes, including the two-headed Prince of Demons, the Domogorgon, with classic Dungeons & Dragons characters
The Forgotten Realms will be getting a little larger from February 9th for all Xbox Live Gold subscribers, and as ever, if you’ve not seen Neverwinter you can check it out in the official Underdark Gameplay trailer below.
