by Rainier on June 11, 2020 @ 11:51 a.m. PDT

In Neverwinter, players choose to become one of five classic D&D classes and team up with friends or NPCs to form five-person co-op groups. Players also create their own storylines and quests utilizing a user-friendly content generation system.

Players explore the vast city of Neverwinter and its surrounding countryside, learning the vivid history of the iconic city and battling its many enemies. In Neverwinter, players can create their own quests and campaigns with the Foundry, a powerful content creation tool that allows players to seamlessly integrate their adventures in to the live game world.

They might not be the most pleasant-looking creatures, but they are definitely a fierce bunch of savage and bloodthirsty warriors. By plaguing the civilized races, Orcs have always been a major threat to humans, elves and dwarfs. Laying claim to the area in the northern half of the old Tower District, Orcs have made the Cloak Tower in Neverwinter their home. Even the most courageous heroes will have to fight their way through the ruins of this district to put an end to the Orc domination and help restore Neverwinter to her former glory.

Avernus is the next major update for Neverwinter,and is set to launch June 30 on PC and will launch at a later date on Xbox One and PS4.

The latest update will continue and conclude the events of the previous major update Infernal Descent, as it will send players on a thrilling journey across the Waste of Avernus.

Avernus will send new and returning players on a journey where they’ll be able to drive infernal war machines, unravel the mysterious past of the Archdevil Zariel and witness how their actions directly impact and evolve the world. The update will also bring epic story content that concludes the previous update’s storyline based on the Dungeons & Dragons tabletop adventure, Baldur’s Gate: Descent Into Avernus

Neverwinter is available on PC and is free to play digitally on Xbox One (with Xbox Live Gold) and PS4 (PlayStation Plus not required).
