Neverwinter players will go through the nine circles in Infernal Descent as they venture into Avernus, following an incident with Vallenhas Manor. There will be plenty of new content that's already available on PC while console players will get it a month later.
PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will get to enjoy the adventure based on Baldur's Gate: Descent Into Avernus on 25 February 2020 while the PC version is ready to go. Vallenhas Manor has been ripped from Faerûn and pulled into Avernus, which is the first layer of Nine Hells. Players will join up with Paladin Alric Vallenhas and Bard Etrien Sael in order to save the people dragged along with the estate.
New endgame campaign will be available to those who venture into the fiery depths with a new adventure zone with heroic encounters to boot. Furthermore, there will be an endgame dungeon, unique story instances and more, as follows:
- Baldur's Gate: Desent Into Avernus storyline - new story content based on the aforementioned tabletop experience
- Baldur's Gate: Desent Into Avernus campaign - endgame content for level 80 characters
- Vallenhas Estate adventure zone - featuring demon fights and heroic encounters
- A House in Need story instance - the opening sequence that introduces Alric, Etrien and the story of Vallenhas family
- The Last Bastion story instance - conclusion to Infernal Descent questline where players face off against Zariel
- Infernal Citadel Dungeon - a dungeon in a citadel that floats above Avernus
Normally, new content would be exciting for the players to hear about but Neverwinter is suffering from longstanding problems like pay to win mechanics and content that tends to be too similar to what was previously available, which resulted in those who are still sticking with the game being somewhat disillusioned.
