Neverwinter is currently massive. There’s a plethora of things to do and quests to fulfill. Well, it’s about to get even bigger. The seventh expansion for the free-to-play MMORPG will hit the Xbox One in November and it promises to keep you entertained.

You will get the opportunity to join other guild members to reclaim a derelict stronghold from the wild and rebuild it into a fortified castle on Neverwinter’s largest map.

This should really fire up those nostalgic juices, eager for the feeling of traditional wargaming from the early Dungeons and Dragons. Stronghold will empower guilds to battle the surrounding environment for resources to customise and optimise their newly acquired home against threats. Build and fortify structures like archer towers to fend off attackers, while building siege weapons to increase your ability to wage war against enemy guilds in the all new Siege PVP game mode, also available at launch.

Strongholds Siege is fought on battlegrounds created by combining two strongholds maps. thus doubling the scale and making it the largest map ever built. This would be able to support large-scale 20-vs-20, MOBA-like combat. The objective of this mode is to siege and destroy the enemy’s guild hall. Once the keep has been secured, guilds work to solidify their foothold along the ranges of the Sword Coast.

Neverwinter: Strongholds will be ready for siege-attacks from the 3rd of November, and here’s a taster of the action.
