Neverwinter announces Tomb of Annihilation expansion for July 25

If you’re a Dungeons and Dragons fan, you may have already been watching the “Stream of Annihilation” on Twitch this afternoon. But if you’re an MMORPG fan as well, you’re getting some extra goodies because Neverwinter is included in the fun: PWE and Cryptic have just announced the Tomb of Annihilation “marquee expansion for 2017” for the game.

“Neverwinter’s Harpers seek to end the wickedness of a new death curse on the jungle peninsula of Chult, sending adventurers on an expedition to a land infested with Yuan-ti, undead and dinosaurs. Beginning at the new social hub of Port Nyanzaru, adventurers will explore various regions of Chult to uncover the evil behind the curse annihilating the people of Faerûn. Adventurers can team up with old friends Minsc, Boo, Celeste, the famed explorer Volothamp Geddarm, and an unexpected ally. The twelfth expansion to Neverwinter brings new content including a Tomb of Annihilation campaign, end-game dungeon, monster hunts with the legendary Volo, a jungle adventure zone inhabited by dinosaurs and social hub for weary travelers.”

Expect the expansion out on July 25th for PC (later for console as always). Enjoy the trailer!

Drizzt and Minsc and Bruenor and Regis were awesome, but to party with Volo — this is a real dream come true. And I’m really excited to be venturing so far south too. Pluuuuus, it all makes me hopeful that one day we may even do Maztica!

Neverwinter has really been spitting out expansions. I tried it around launch and barely remember it, I’m pretty sure I played a cleric and spent most of my time running in circles with one button held down.
Has it changed a lot? What’s it like nowadays?

Its basically an evolution on Diablo, but even grindier. Combat is fun, though a bit simplistic… lots of dungeon/raid variety, with some decent story bits in the campaigns. But the grind is real in this game. If you don’t like spending time gearing up, this is not the game for you. Its also not alt friendly AT ALL. You need all the boons from completing all the high level campaigns, but the vast majority of those are time gated (30 days each roughly).

Having said that, this game scratches the skinner box itch that D3 couldn’t.

I don’t play Neverwinter, Dungeons & Dragons Online, or the current pen-and-paper version of D&D, but credit where it’s due: the thought that all three games might be paying homage to the classic Tomb of Horrors adventure is pretty cool.
