Dungeons & Dragons fans rejoice as Neverwinter, the free-to-play fantasy MMORPG inspired by the tabletop classic, has unveiled a new infernal episode entitled Rage of Bel.
Just like the game that inspired it, Neverwinter exhibits an expansive storyline rife with all the twists and turns that comprise a good D&D session. It is a fully free-to-play title, from level one to the level cap, with all playable content accessible at no cost and even the game assets available for all players to create their own adventures.
Rage of Bel acts as a segue between story arcs (a.k.a. ‘modules’), occurring at the end of Infernal Descent and establishing the upcoming and as yet unannounced module. Within it, preceding actions of Neverwinter players have bred dire consequences, leading to the ominous arrival of the demonic Bel. The story via Neverwinter is as follows:
‘The breaking of the citadel’s chains has caused the archdevil Zariel to take notice. So she has sent her second-in-command and most conniving lieutenant, Bel, to destroy Vallenhas and any who would stand in her way.
What she doesn’t know is that Bel has other plans. Should he find adventurers tough enough to best him and his legion in combat, he may be able to give them the secret to defeating her.
Join the fight for Vallenhas’ freedom once more by becoming one of Alric’s Riftwardens. Speak with Alric to cement your place in the annals of this epic fight between the forces of good and evil.’
We love a well-conceived narrative and it’s no wonder that a D&D MMO has us raring to get involved. Luckily, Rage of Bel is available to PC players as of right now (Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players have a little longer to wait) – so why not fully read up on what to expect via their announcement page and dive into the action over at the Neverwinter website.
