Perfect World Entertainment now offers Uprising
, a new free expansion for
their Dungeons & Dragons MMORPG. This includes a new playable race that's only
available to VIP members for the first two weeks as well as an all-new 10-player
endgame trial, new PvP content, a "recrafted" early game experience, and more.
Here's the Official Launch Trailer
and here's more:
Illithid, aka Mind Flayers, have subjugated the gith for
eons, treating them as slaves and converting them to otherworldly creatures
against their will. Players join the conflict as it erupts in Halaster
Blackcloak’s domain, drawing his malice. Along this path to a wild and explosive
battle of wills against the Mad Mage, players explore deeper into Undermountain
than before, leading to a magic portal that transports adventurers to the gith
base of Stardock on asteroid above Toril. Back in Protector’s Enclave, the
untold wealth adventurers have earned in Undermountain results in renovations
for both the heart of Neverwinter and the Early Game experience. Learn more
