It’s almost hard to believe that we are heading towards the ninth DLC expansion for Perfect World Entertainment’s Neverwinter. The free-to-play MMORP has been a real hit with gamers across multiple formats. In the last expansion, Neverwinter: Underdark, demons were starting to escape from the Abyss and the next expansion, The Maze Engine, continues that storyline.
Coming firstly to PC in March, Neverwinter: The Maze Engine will also be hitting us lucky folk on Xbox One at a later date.
What can we expect to find in this next expansion? How about The Horned King Baphomet and the Prince of the Undead, Orcus? Down in the depths of the Underdark, Baphomet and his demons guard The Maze Engine, a magical mechanical device that can warp the fabric of reality. Orcus has taken control of Castle Never and has reanimated defeated enemies of the past.
Your task will be to eliminate these new threats by teaming up with Drizzt Do’Urden, Minsc, Bruenor Battlehammer, Regis and many more of the classic D&D characters.
Have a look at the challenge issued below in the official announcement trailer and look out for further updates, hopefully including an Xbox ONe release date, soon.
