Neverwinter: The Maze Engine gets March release date

PC players first, Xbox One players at a later date

Neverwinter: The Maze Engine has received a March release date for PC players according to an announcement made by both Perfect World and Cryptic Studios today.

The game's 9th expansion takes place immediately after the events of Neverwinter: Underdark and Drizz't Do'Urden has expelled Demogorgon from the realm. The downside is the rift it caused allowed Baphoment and Orcus, two hellacious demons, to return to the sword coast. Baphoment is guarding the Maze Engine, a device that can warp space and time, while Orcus has taken over Castle Never once Valindra was defeated. 

Neverwinter: The Maze Engine brings new gameplay updates, including the return of four regular dungeons and one epic dungeon, all of which have been updated visually and content-wise. Castle Never has received a massive overhaul, now that it’s been taken over by Orcus. The expansion will also introduce a new campaign, a system that gives customization to mounts and how they’re kept, and an improved queue system.

I've reached out to Perfect World in an effort to see what mount upgrades the campaign will include, and will let you know what I hear. 

Neverwinter: The Maze Engine hits PC on March 15th. The Xbox One date has not been announced yet.
