News Xbox One Xbox One S Xbox One X

Neverwinter is a free-to-play action MMORPG that features fast-paced combat and epic dungeons. Players explore the vast city of Neverwinter and its surrounding countryside, learning the vivid history of the iconic city in the Forgotten Realms and battling its many enemies. Released NOW is the Shroud of Souls update.

After perishing in an attempt to steal the “Shroud of Souls” from its vault, the dragonborn necromancer returns as a shade manipulating a spectral force to overwhelm the city. Heroes of Neverwinter must end this undead uprising before Morlanth can recruit even more powerful sprits for her legions. The Loadouts feature, Strongholds upgrades, including a customisable Guild Hall as well as a new “Marauders” event and more come to Neverwinter in the Shroud of Souls update.

A complete list of new features coming to Neverwinter in this update can be found below:

  • New Story: The Cloaked Ascendancy has fallen, giving way to a new foe with plans to raise a spectral army to her side. Adventurers must traverse areas rife with evil spirits to overcome this powerful necromantic threat.
  • New Loadouts Feature: Adventurers can now create gear Loadouts to suit all of Neverwinter’s activities. Whether it’s dungeon delving, skirmishes, Strongholds, or PvP; quick swapping Loadouts will get players between the activities they enjoy faster than ever.
  • Strongholds Marauders: Building off of The Cloaked Ascendancy’s dynamic “The Illusionist’s Gambit” skirmish, this new Siege event pits adventurers against several waves of enemies. After they’re defeated, players will be able to continue defending their Stronghold or take their current rewards to bolster its advancement.
  • Customisable Guild Halls: Customisable Guild Halls give adventurers an all-new social space to call their own with dozens of customisable options where they can showcase their guild’s achievements in Neverwinter.

I'm the wrong side of 40 and I love games with great stories and multiplayer fun with friends. I started my gaming life on a Commodore Vic 20 (Google it!) Most importantly, I hold a strong belief that you should be as excellent to people on the internet as you would to them in real life!
