Neverwinter is set in the Dungeons And Dragons world by Forgotten Realms and the Wizards Of The Coast, and follows the tales revolving around the Neverwinter kingdom. You may be familiar with the series from the Neverwinter Nights game that first came out back in 2002.
Neverwinter is similar, but is now a 3rd person MMORPG where you can travel around in an open world, team up with friends, level up, buy pets, mounts, and tackle large dungeons while defeating epic dragons.
Now, the developers are bringing the ninth expansion to the world of Neverwinter with their newest update called “The Maze Engine”.
Baphomet, the beastly prince himself, has risen with his demonic forces in an attempt to take over the world, it will be up to you and your team of heroes to defeat him, but you will have a bit of extra help along the way. Popular faces from other previous Dungeons And Dragons titles will join forces with you to help you defeat Baphomet’s army, such as Regis, Bruenor Battlehammer, Minsc and his super epic space hamster Boo, as well as the legendary Drizzt Do’Urden, to help you conquer the Maze Engine dungeon.
The new story that is centered around the Maze Engine is a direct continuation of the previous expansion and storyline from the tales from Neverwinter: Underdark, and will pick up where the last story left off. Take a look at the below promotional trailer that the development team released on February 2nd to announce the new expansion update.
