Neverwinter – Perfect World launches 8th game expansion Underdark

[Play now] Perfect World Entertainment today launched, Underdark, the eighth expansion for action MMORPG Neverwinter. Set in the Dungeons & Dragons’ Forgotten Realms universe, players will join forces with Drizzt Do’Urden and his companions to battle demonic forces erupting from the Underdark, including an all-new 10-player encounter against the Prince of Demons, Demogorgon.

 

When a spell turns against the Archmage of Menzoberranzan, powerful demons spill into the Underdark, beginning a series of events that coincide with the Rage of Demons storyline from Wizards of the Coast. Underdark lets players jump into that story to battle these demons and send them back to the Abyss. This expansion continues to improve the constantly-evolving MMORPG.
