Neverwinter: Infernal Descent is live on PC, takes you to hell

Neverwinter: Infernal Descent

Perfect World and Cryptic Studios have released the latest update for Neverwinter. We've already lost track of the number of updates for the free-to-play Dungeons and Dragons MMORPG, a game that was released for PC in 2013. Called Neverwinter: Infernal Descent, it will take you to the first layer of the Nine Hells, something that sounds very inviting. This update is now live on PC and is coming to Xbox One and PS4 on February 25, 2020.

Neverwinter: Infernal Descent is inspired by Wizards of the Coast’s Dungeons and Dragons tabletop adventure, Baldur’s Gate: Descent Into Avernus. You will team up with two new heroes, the Paladin Alric Vallenhas and the Bard Etrien Sael, and venture into the first layer of the Nine Hells. Your goal is to save the folks of Vallenhas Estate from the clutches of the evil archdevil Zariel.

You can expect a new endgame campaign for level 80 characters, a new adventure zone, and a new and hard-as-nails endgame dungeon. Here is a list of the main features coming with Neverwinter: Infernal Descent:

  • Baldur’s Gate: Descent Into Avernus Storyline: Players will witness a thrilling story based on the official Baldur’s Gate: Descent Into Avernus campaign from Dungeons & Dragons unfold as Vallenhas Manor has been ripped from Faerûn and pulled into Avernus, the first layer of the Nine Hells.
  • Baldur’s Gate: Descent Into Avernus Campaign: Brave adventurers can enter a challenging endgame Descent Into Avernus campaign for level 80 characters that have players descend straight into Hell to save the people of Vallenhas Estate from the infernal machinations of the archdevil Zariel.
  • New Neverwinter Characters: Unite new heroes, Paladin Alric Vallenhas, a once righteous paladin who wishes to redeem himself, and Bard Etrien Sael, a protector of innocents who’s loyal to the Vallenhas family.
  • Vallenhas Estate Adventure Zone: Players can explore the fractured lands surrounding the Vallenhas Manor, fight against the evil spawn of the Lower Planes and experience heroic encounters.
    A House in Need Story Instance: Players will experience a unique crafted opening that tells the story of the Vallenhas family and introduces Alric and Etrien.
  • The Last Bastion Story Instance: Neverwinter heroes must defeat a powerful devil in this repeatable conclusion to the Infernal Descent questline.
  • Infernal Citadel Dungeon: Set in a deadly devil’s citadel that floats above Avernus, this new endgame dungeon provides an epic challenge that will put adventurers’ skills to the test.
