The Dungeons & Dragons-based free-to-play MMORPG Neverwinter is about to get the ninth expansion this spring for PC and at a later date for Xbox One. Titled The Maze Engine, the expansion will ask players to join forces with Drizzt Do’Urden, Minsc, and other famous characters to face iconic Dungeons & Dragons enemies including Baphomet and Orcus.
The story follows closely the events of Underdark, the eight expansion. Adventurers have quelled the efforts of Demogorgon though some demons continue to make their way into the Forgotten Realms. Now, two new demon lords – Baphomet and Orcus – have appeared, bringing a new, terrible threat to the realm. Adventurers now must band together with iconic heroes, including Drizzt Do’Urden, Minsc, Bruenor Battlehammer, Regis, and more to face-off against a new evil.
The Maze Engine also includes overhauls to five existing dungeons (for example, Castle Never) as well as a new campaign, The Stable (a system for more in-depth mount customization) and an improved queue system.
Here is the announcement trailer.
