Neverwinter: Uprising is now available on console, and with the update comes a new playable race, a 10-player endgame Trial, new PvP content consisting of new gear and a new map. and of course, some achievements to go along with it.
The never-ending war between the Githyanki and their former overlords the Illithid has overflowed into the dungeon of the Undermountain. Both groups are on the hunt for a powerful artefact that will grant entry to a Githzerai city found in the plane of Limbo. If either faction gains access, it would be disastrous. The Githyanki and Githzerai share a common ancestry but have been driven apart into civil war.
However, a small group of Gith — made up of both Githyank and Githzerai— have put aside their differences to recover the artefact and undermine both opposing factions. The Gith has enlisted the help of adventurers to go behind enemy lines and find the artefact. A magic portal will found under the mountain will transport players to the Gith base, Stardock which is currently in orbit around Toril and guarded by Dragons.
Adventurers will be able to play as a member of the Gith race and become part of the rebellion. Also in the new update is The Tower of the Mad Mage Trial, where players will enter Halaster Blackloak's private library to match wits and powers in an endgame 10-player Trial. New PvP content is included too, with a new map called Stardock Arena and gear rewards.
The new Gith race is free for a limited time with the race coming to Neverwinter VIP players first, for the first two weeks of the update (October 1 – October 15), and then to everyone else for free in the following two weeks (October 15 – October 29). After October 29, players who didn't log in for the free unlock will have to buy a pack to access the Gith race.
