Dungeons & Dragons fans rejoice as the Uprising module for Neverwinter is finally available for the PC. Console gamers will need to wait a bit more, as it is going to be released on other platforms October 1.

The Illithid, also known as Mind Flayers, have subjugated the Gith for eons while treating them as slaves. They have also been converting the Gith into otherworldly creatures against their will.

Players join the conflict as it erupts in the domain of Halaster Blackcloak, drawing his malice. Along this path toward a wild and explosive battle of wills against the Mad Mage, players need to explore deeper into Undermountain than ever before, leading to a magic portal that transports adventurers to the Gith base of Stardock on an asteroid above Toril. Meanwhile, back in the Protector’s Enclave, the untold wealth adventurers have earned in Undermountain results in renovations for both the heart of Neverwinter and the Early Game experience.

Changes that comes with Uprising include:

  • All-New Gith Race
    • Become the rebellion! The new race of psionic warriors is available to VIP members the first two weeks following Uprising’s launch and to all PC players for the following two weeks. This cycle repeats on console only when Uprising launches on October 1.
  • Uprising Storyline
    • Engage the illitihid in a struggle that will take adventurers from the depths of Undermountain to a secret Gith asteroid base in orbit above Toril.
  • Tower of the Mad Mage Trial
    • Enter Halaster Blackcloak’s private library to match wits and powers in an all-new, Endgame 10-Player Trial.
  • Protector’s Enclave & Early Game Zone Revamp
    • Adventurers returning from their questing to the south may notice some changes to the heart of Neverwinter. Explore a remodeled Protector’s Enclave and experience adjustments to early zones and stories, which make starting a fresh character more enjoyable.
  • Appearance System Overhaul
    • An evolution of the transmutation, dye and fashion systems, the newly improved Appearance tab allows adventurers to define the look of each slot in their inventory. Use dyes to unlock reusable colors, allowing for permanent mixing-and-matching of gear appearance and accents to truly define the look of each character.
  • New PvP Content
    • Enjoy a new map, Stardock Arena, and fresh rewards for your battle efforts as the development team continues to evolve the PvP experience following class overhauls in Undermountain.

Neverwinter is a free-to-play action MMORPG that features fast-paced combat and epic dungeons. Players explore the vast city of Neverwinter and its surrounding countryside, learning about the vivid history of the iconic city in the Forgotten Realms and battling its many enemies.
