Neverwinter Announces Infernal Descent Update

Neverwinter, the action MMORPG from Cryptic Studios based on Dungeons & Dragons, announced its latest update this week titled "Infernal Descent". Its set to launch on PC on January 21, 2020 and consoles sometime afterwards. It's the next major module (update) and features the first ever campaign for lvl 80 characters, a new endgame dungeon, a new adventure zone, and more.

For the very first time, Neverwinter players will be able to visit a Lower Plane of Hell, as they explore a new endgame campaign for level 80 characters, an added adventure zone with heroic encounters and a new dungeon that takes place on a floating citadel above Avernus. Infernal Descent also introduces new story instances, demonic encounters and other exciting content based on Descent Into Avernus. More details will be revealed when the update launches on PC January 21.

Fortunately, adventurers won’t have to wait until January to explore the Nine Hells. Starting tomorrow, November 21, PC players can participate in the Hell Pit event. Over the next three weeks, heroes will convene in an infernal arena buried in the depths of the Lower Planes. This area will spawn glyphs that provide combatants with additional powers, including magical shields, increased speed, and destructive energy. As each week progresses, the challenges will become more and more deadly, until the only ones left standing are crowned the champions of Hell Pit. New rewards and great renown await those who are strong enough to survive.
