Having recently been fully optimised for Xbox Series X|S, Neverwinter players now get access to another gift – the 25th module for the game in the form of Menzoberranzan on Xbox, PlayStation and PC. 

Gearbox Publishing and Cryptic Studios are today rolling out Neverwinter’s 25th module, Menzoberranzan as it launches on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation and PC.

This is the latest major update for the free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons MMORPG and will bring the epic conclusion of the two-part storyline and campaign written in collaboration with New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore and Geno Salvatore — that was first introduced in the previous module, Northdark Reaches. For the first time ever in Neverwinter, players will be able to explore the drow city of Menzoberranzan, the fabled home of the legendary Dungeons & Dragons character Drizzt Do’Urden.

It’s all been inspired by R.A. Salvatore’s hit trilogy book series, The Way of the Drow, as players encounter beloved D&D characters, including Drizzt, and experience the events that occur between the final two books, Glacier’s Edge and Lolth’s Warrior.

We’ll take the press blurb and run with it, but please be aware that there are spoilers below these words, especially critical for those who have not yet completed the Northdark Reaches update

Following the events of Northdark Reaches, Jarlaxle Baenre, leader of the Bregan D’aerthe mercenary company, has returned to the legendary City of Spiders, Menzoberranzan, after being reunited with the illustrious scout Braelin Janquay. The stench of civil war looms on the horizon, and rumors of a long-forgotten artifact threaten to turn the tides in Lolth’s favor. The Underdark will succumb to chaos if such power falls into the wrong hands. To stop the civil war from becoming a reality, you’ll need to join the ex-drider forces of the Blaspheme and delve into the darkness once more to save the great city of Menzoberranzan!

Heroes brave enough to answer Jarlaxle Baenre’s call for aid will discover plenty of new content within Neverwinter, including the new Menzoberranzan Adventure Zone. For surviving the deadly streets of the famed drow city, players will need to avoid drow patrols and evade assassins that await you. While exploring this region of the Underdark, expect to discover new quests, encounter both friend and foe in challenging battles – including heroic encounters — and unearth epic rewards as you explore epic locations across Menzoberranzan in the Underdark of Faerûn.

There’s more though and in celebration of Neverwinter’s 10-year anniversary, Dungeons & Dragons fans and Neverwinter players alike can challenge the beholder deity Gzemnid and claim rare treasures. After being drawn to the power of a powerful artifact of calamitous potential, the Eye of Odran, Gzemnid has taken physical form within his reliquary, and eagerly awaits those brave and foolish enough to face a beholder god. Along with this trial, quality of life improvements, such as balancing updates to companions, new Insignia-specific updates to the mount system and new rewards for all appointment store events will be included in the new module.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
