[Play now] Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Games recently announced Neverwinter: The Maze Engine is heading to Windows PC on 15 March and Xbox One console at a later date. The ninth expansion to the Dungeons & Dragons-based MMORPG, The Maze Engine pits players against new demonic threats to Neverwinter after slaying the two-headed Demogorgon in the previous expansion.
The Maze Engine introduces two powerful demon lords, the Horned King Baphomet and the Prince of Undeath, Orcus. Down in the depths of the Underdark, Baphomet and his demons guard the Maze Engine, a magical mechanical device that can warp the very fabric of reality. Meanwhile, Orcus has taken control of Castle Never and re-animated defeated enemies of the past to challenge players.
Neverwinter: The Maze Engine brings several updates, including the return of four regular dungeons and one epic dungeon, all of which have updated visuals and content. Castle Never has received a massive overhaul, now that it’s been taken over by Orcus. The expansion will also introduce a new campaign, mount customization and how they’re kept, and an improved queue system.
