Neverwinter’s Storm King’s Thunder expansion arrives August 16

Announced back in June, this summer’s big Neverwinter expansion is called Storm King’s Thunder, and as of today we know exactly when it’s coming: August 16th. That’s on PC, anyway; Xbox One players and those who joined the game on PS4 this very week will have to wait for the usual “later date.”

The expansion includes an endgame campaign and storyline that’s tied into the upcoming Wizards of the Coast pen-and-paper adventure of the same name.

“Similar to the Storm King’s Thunder adventure coming to Dungeons & Dragons later this year, Neverwinter’s new expansion sees giants invade 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. In order to fight off these colossal invaders, players must team up with popular characters from Dungeons & Dragons lore, including Catti-brie, Wulfgar and Harshnag. In addition to the new Frost Giants story content, Storm King’s Thunder also introduces a brand new end-game campaign and new adventure zones for high-level players, including Bryn Shander, Cold Run and The Lonelywood. The expansion also marks the debut of a new dungeon tier with the addition of the new Tier 3 dungeon, Fangbreaker Island. With the release of Storm King’s Thunder, adventurers will also be able to score new high-level equipment to equip their characters with the latest gear.”
