Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios have announced that the Undermountain expansion has launched for Neverwinter's console community. Players will find the expansive new Undermountain story campaign, new Expeditions, a new level cap of 80, a brand new end game dungeon, overhauls to Class Powers & Feats, a retooled Boons system, richer loot drops and much more.

  • 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 the Fifth Edition of Dungeons & Dragons. The goal with these changes is to align classes with their roles and make customization within each path viable, fun and more straightforward.

  • Halaster Encounters - The Mad Mage himself will make unpredictable appearances throughout Undermountain, presenting opportunities to match wit and force. Some encounters will be a challenge, while others may be more bizarre; it’s impossible to tell. After all, he has full control over this domain he has created.

  • 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 Legacy Campaigns - 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.
