Perfect World and Cryptic Studios have announced Neverwinter: Storm King’s Thunder, the newest expansion for the free-to-play MMORPG.
The expansion is in tandem with Wizards of the Coast’s latest Dungeons & Dragons story and will launch on PS4 and Xbox One on October 18th. The adventure will send players back to Icewind Dale to face off against Giants and will feature 3 new adventure zones as well as a challenging new dungeon.
Neverwinter: Storm King’s Thunder starts when Frost Giants force their way into the northern regions of the Sword Coast, forcing Neverwinter’s strongest adventurers to defend the land. Adventurers will travel to the Ten Towns biggest settlement, Bryn Shander. From here, players will team up with classic characters from Dungeons and Dragons such as Catti-brie, Wulfgar and Harshnag. Upon winning this battle, adventurers will continue on to Lonelywood and Cold Run, until they eventually reach Fangbreaker Island, a remote isle in the Sea of Moving Ice.
As well as this expansion, PS4 players will also receive The Maze Engine: Guild Alliances update which will bring tweaks and improvements as well as the ability to ally with another guild to strengthen their strongholds. This will allow faster levelling up for both parties and greater rewards!
I’ve been hooked on Neverwinter for the last 2 months playing nothing else so cannot wait for more of the lore to explore. Are there any other Neverwinter players out there that are looking forward to this? Let us know in the comments section below!
