The Neverwinter saga continues with Perfect World Entertainment’s revelation that the latest expansion, Neverwinter: The Cloaked Ascendancy will be heading to the Xbox later on this year.
The Cloaked Ascendancy will see the Spellplague continuing to cast it’s mornful shadow over the inhabitants of Neverwinter. Four mages torn from the Cloak Tower by a spellstorm return to usurp the throne. With this latest expansion, adventurers can look forward to several all-new features including a new campaign, adventure zone, skirmish and more.
The Cloaked Ascendancy begins, following the the harrowing events of Storm King’s Thunder in the Northern reaches of Faerun, as adventurers return to the city to honour a fallen hero. Gyrion the Ascendant and other former residents of the Cloak Tower, ravaged and reformed by the Far Realm, appear ready to wield their awesome magical powers against Neverwinter. Players will brave their way through the latest adventure zone, The River District, to experience a new campaign exploring the trials of these powerful foes and uncovering their hidden motives. The expansion concludes in an epic return to the new high-end dungeon, Spellplague Caverns, which is now firmly under the control of the Cloaked Ascendancy.
Players will also experience a new skirmish, loaded with innovative gameplay and the original Spellplague Caverns which will be returning as a leveling dungeon.
No definite release date has been made available to us for Neverwinter: The Cloaked Ascendancy, but we do know that it will be sometime this year.
