Neverwinter’s Largest Expansion Ever, Undermountain is Live for PC

Neverwinter‘s latest expansion has officially hit PC today (and is coming to console on June 11th, 2019): the mysterious Undermountain! Adventurers will be tasked with exploring Halastar Blackcloak’s enormous dungeon beneath Waterdeep, known as Undermountain. Five diverse Adventure Zones await via the Yawning Portal social hub. Players will be guided by the well-known proprietor of this tavern by Durnan (voiced by Dungeon Master Ruty Rutenberg), and the Chultan priest of Waukeen, Obaya Uday (voiced by D&D community leader/founder of Gilding Light, Satine Phoenix).

Neverwinter players can also look forward to the level-cap increase to 80, a new Endgame Dungeon, Class Powers and Feats overhauls, a new Boons system, and a richer loot drop experience. Newer players can look forward to improved level-scaling for earlier zones as well. The all-new Expeditions system also awaits, where players can explore the ever-changing caverns of Undermountain.

Features of Undermountain Expansion:

  • Undermountain Campaign – The many levels of Undermountain hold secrets, exceptional rewards, wondrous beasts and remarkable experiences. The Mad Mage has called adventurers to the cavernous halls below Waterdeep, but for what purpose? Players must survive five brand new Adventure Zones to find out.

  • New Expedition Feature – This all-new feature introduced in Undermountain highlights the unknowable nature of the levels beneath Waterdeep. Expeditions will challenge adventurers with scaling, dynamic, repeatable quests in the search for magic relics, lost routes and some of the expansion’s greatest rewards.

  • Class Revamps – All eight of Neverwinter’s classes will receive varying levels of balance and adjustments in this expansion. Each class has also been renamed to align with Fifth Edition. The goal with these changes is to align classes with their roles and make customization within each path viable, fun and more straightforward.

  • Rewards Overhaul – The most notorious dungeon in all of Faerûn will reward adventurers with the best loot in all of Neverwinter. With a level cap increase to 80, new sources of powerful loot including tiered artifact sets can be earned throughout Undermountain and from its caverns’ inhabitants.

  • Endgame Challenge Campaign – Neverwinter’s many older and non-leveling-zone campaigns now offer three weekly bounties earning currency for rewards that are in-line with their endgame characters, regardless of whether the zone these quests were completed in are considered “Endgame”, e.g., Underdark or Sharandar.

  • Redesigned Companions System – Player Companions now fall into one of five categories. The more companions owned within each category, the stronger active companions will be with power upgrades. Synergy will create the biggest bonuses, however, the goal of these changes is to ensure all players can use whichever companions that they want, without punishment.

  • Halaster Encounters – The Mad Mage’s influence can be felt throughout Undermountain, with unpredictable appearances presenting opportunities to witness his full control over this domain. After all, it is his home.
