Neverwinter: Underdark continues the longstanding relationship between Cryptic and the D&D, allowing us to further flesh out content to official storylines from Wizards of the Coast,” said Rob Overmeyer, executive producer of Neverwinter. “As Dungeons & Dragons fans, we have always theorycrafted adventures that we want to play ourselves in Neverwinter. Collaborating with Salvatore to create adventures that put our characters alongside Drizzt and Bruenor is a huge opportunity. Underdark is just the beginning, as our team has even more ideas to deliver content that D&D fans will continue to enjoy.

It’s great to see that our friends at Cryptic are just as susceptible to demonic invasion as the rest of the D&D community,” said Nathan Stewart, Brand Director of Dungeons & Dragons. “Here’s hoping Neverwinter players are able to stave off the sinuous madness that Demogorgon can produce in even the most stalwart of heroes, Drizzt included.

This expansion also improves players' quality-of-life with several updates, such as the update to the Trade Bar Store allowing easier access to items and economy adjustments or the new gear preview feature.
