Gearbox Publishing and Cryptic Studios bring us the launch trailer for the Demonweb Pits expansion Never winter. This is already the 26th DLC for the MMORPG.

Additional information can be found in the press release:

In this expansion to the freetoplay D&D MMORPG, adventurers take on Lolth, the drow spider goddess, to push her back from the material plane and save the city of Menzoberranzan once and for all. For the first time, adventurers can enter a new adventure zone, the Narbondellyn District, and explore the territory of House FeyBranche, a mighty House of Menzoberranzan. Demonweb Pits also features a new campaign, the challenging Demonweb Pits dungeon featuring an epic battle against Lolth, thrilling hunts across Menzoberranzan, and gameplay improvements including a new enhanced leveling experience. This expansion marks the end of the Menzoberranzan story as the next expansion of Never winter will be unlike anything players have experienced before.

After the events of Menzoberranzan, Gromph Baenre, archmage of Menzoberranzan, has recovered his lost portion of the demon summoning, Zaun’ol’leal. The Archmage searched ancient texts in the Sorcere to find a way to the Demonweb Pits, Lolth’s realm in the Abyss. This brought about a spell that broke under its own weight, connecting the material plane and the Demonweb Pits. This allowed demons, including Lolth, to enter the Underdark and unleashed a wave of Abyssal magic in the Narbondellyn precinct. To prevent Menzoberranzan from being torn apart, adventurers must join forces with Noori, a brilliant sorcerer mage, to close the gap between the planes and send Lolth back to the abyss!
