Perfect World Entertainment has announced the next Neverwinter module is on the way as “Uprising” will be coming to PC on August 13th. The big addition coming with this will be the Gith as a playable race, along with new PvP content, a renovated Protector’s Enclave, a recrafted Early Game experience, plus more minor additions to really bring the game together. Specifically, on the Gitch, the developers say “These psionic warriors are seeking retribution against the Illithid, intruding on Halaster Blackcloak’s lair of Undermountain, which culminates in a 10-player Endgame Trial against the Mad Mage himself.” So this will build on the story you just experienced in the Undermountain with the last adventure. Enjoy the full description and the trailer below as we wait for it to come to Neverwinter.
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.
