For eons, the illithid subjugated the gith, treating them as slaves and converting them to otherworldly creatures against their will. With Neverwinter: Uprising, console players join this eternal conflict as it spills into Halaster Blackcloak's domain in the heart of Undermountain, where they will discover a magic portal which transports them to the gith base of Stardock on an asteroid above Toril. Uprising also brings many exciting new updates to players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, including:

  • All-New Playable Gith Race – Become the rebellion! The new race of psionic warriors is available to VIP members the first two weeks following Uprising's launch.

  • Uprising Storyline – Engage the illitihid in a struggle that will take adventurers from the depths of Undermountain to a secret githyanki 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 through the eyes of a new character.

  • 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 PvP experience evolves following class overhauls in Undermountain.
