Neverwinter: Storm King’s Thunder coming October 18th to PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios have announced that Neverwinter: Storm King’s Thunder will release on October 18th.

“Inspired by Wizards of the Coast’s latest tabletop expansion, you’ll team up with characters from New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore’s novels, Catti-brie and Wulfgar, in order to unravel the mystery behind the invading giants and what they’re searching for.”

Storm King’s Thunder will introduce three new adventure zones, a brand new campaign, a new tier of dungeon, the Ostorian relics system, and class balance among quality of life changes.

More story details:

“You’ll travel back to Icewind Dale where a massive blizzard envelops the once bustling town of Bryn Shander. Your quests there will then bring you to the picturesque town of Lonelywood, which is surrounded by a beautiful yet haunting forest. Finally, head to Cold Run where the frost giants first embarked from their ships. Each of these adventure zones holds their own secrets and are ripe with Ostorian relics, a new system that has you searching for ancient items in order to power up your gear.”

The new dungeon, Fangbreaker Island, will have its own tier with a required item level of 3100. The dungeon will come equipped with the “most challenging” bosses in Neverwinter history: Hati the Manticore, the Dragon Turtle, and the frost giant Drufi.

Other recent salient news: developer Perfect World also recently announced that Neverwinter hit the 12 million player mark as of last week.

Neverwinter: Storm King’s Thunder will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

My Opinion:

I personally don’t play Neverwinter, but my chums who do seemed to be really jazzed about this expansion.
