Perfect World Entertainment Inc., one of the leading publisher of free-to-play MMORPGs, and Cryptic Studios have announced the newest expansion for Neverwinter, Storm King’s Thunder. In the tenth expansion for the free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons-based MMORPG, adventurers will experience a unique story about the rise of giants, based on the upcoming storyline from Wizards of the Coast. This expansion will be available for PC in August but a console release date is still to be confirmed.
Neverwinter: Storm King’s Thunder sees giants invade the world of Neverwinter. Adventurers will travel north to Bryn Shander – the heart of the Ten Towns – to investigate the sudden presence of frost giants in the region. This new content will bring players through three new adventure zones as they team up with popular characters from Dungeons & Dragons lore, including Catti-brie, Wulfgar and Harshnag.
High-level adventurers will experience a new campaign that will guide them through the new adventure zones and story content. In addition to the story content, the expansion will also introduce players to a new tier of dungeon and additional high level equipment for adventurers.
Neverwinter is a free-to-play action MMORPG on the Xbox One that can be downloaded via the online store. For further information check out the official website.
