Heads up: the Underdark expansion for Neverwinter is now available on Xbox One.
Announced last month, the expansion has players tagging along with hunky Drow Drizzt Do’Urden, the dwarf Bruenor Battlehammer and halfling Regis as they try to stem the tide of demonic forces raging from the Underdark.
Players will also take on the self-proclaimed Prince of Demons, Demogorgon, in a 10-player battle. Damn tanar’ri. They really tick my Druid off to no end.
The update also includes the new hub zone of Mantol-Derith, two end-game skirmishes and The Dwarven King quest line written by none other than Drizzt’s creator R.A. Salvatore.
Here’s a list of content you can expect in Underdark:
- 10-player encounter with the two-headed demon lord, Demogorgon
