The Triumphant Return Of Dungeons & Dragons’ Most Famous Hamster

Whenever I think of BioWare’s Baldur’s Gate series, one line of dialogue springs immediately to mind: “Go for the eyes, Boo!” We might soon hear those words again, as Minsc and Boo will play a big role in Neverwinter‘s Elemental Evil expansion when it launches for PC March 17.

Having proved so helpful to players in the Baldur’s Gate series, the berserker-ranger and his miniature giant space hamster companion will be showing up in the expansion to Perfect World Entertainment’s D&D MMO, helping players track down the source of the Elemental Evil cults springing up along the Sword Coast.

One of the most beloved and memorable duos in D&D gaming history, Minsc and Boo are pretty much welcome anywhere they go. Despite his small size, Minsc contends that his animal companion is a miniature giant space hamster, the giant space hamster being an actual creature from the role-playing game’s Spelljammer setting.

Designed as part of Wizards of the Coast’s spring “Elemental Evil” Dungeons & Dragons theme, Neverwinter: Elemental Evil will introduce a huge chunk of fresh playable content, add the Paladin character class (finally) and up the game’s level cap from 60 to 70. The PC expansion will also be available on the Xbox One version when it launches later this year.
