On August 13th, Neverwinter PC players will have the chance to take part in an "ancient war between the gith and the illithid when Uprising launches. Players will be sent on missions to the stronghold of the gith located on an asteroid. Uprising will include the gith as a playable race, will feature a new PvP map, an overhaul of the fashion system, "recrafted early game zones and stories" and much more.

The conflict between the Illithid and the Gith erupts within the caverns of Undermountain, offering players the unique opportunity to challenge Halaster Blackcloak in an endgame, 10-player trail when he emerges to deal with these threats to his realm. Adventurers’ extended stay in Undermountain was very prosperous for Protector’s Enclave, leading to renovations across the city. Users setting forth into Protector’s Enclave and beyond will also find an updated Early Game experience - with adjustments made to several zones and stories. Following the class optimizations in Undermountain, players can look forward to an all-new PvP map and gear to earn. Finally, a Fashion system overhaul will keep adventurers looking their best, and an additional ‘Tales of Old’ event will revive more dungeons from the past- giving players more dungeons than before - binding form and function.

Developers have plans to reveal more in a series of developer diaries to be published over the coming weeks.  There will be a live stream Q&A about Uprising on Wednesday, July 10th at 2:00 pm Pacific / 5:00 pm Eastern.

Check out the trailer below and then head to the Neverwinter site to learn more.
