The spokesperson also told ICv2 that while a special preview adventure will be playable at Gen Con 2015, the official D&D Adventurers League season will be timed to begin with the release of Out of the Abyss, and players will have the opportunity to play the opening chapters of the adventure at participating WPN locations as part of the D&D Encounters in-store play program.
Rage of Demons sees the demon lords unleashed from the Abyss, and players must accompany the iconic renegade drow hero Drizzt Do'Urden to Underdark to stop the chaos before it reaches the surface world. The citizens of Underdark carry rumors of powerful demon lords including Demogorgon, Orcus and Grazz't terrorizing the caverns as they flee to the cities of the Sword Coast. Players must defend Drizzt Do'Urden from not only the demons, but his own dark temptations.
WizKids will produce Rage of Demons-themed releases for Icons of the Realms pre-painted collectible miniatures line, similar to previous storyline product offerings (see “'D&D Icons of the Realms' Minatures Set 3”). In response to a question, no information was available on whether WizKids will also produce a new board game similar to the recently released Temple of Elemental Evil adventure board game.
Gale Force Nine will also add Rage of Demons releases to its high-end, unpainted, limited edition resin miniatures line (see “'D&D: Temple of Elemental Evil' Limited Edition Miniatures”).
