Neverwinter’s Elemental Evil expansion has been delayed

PWE and Cryptic have just announced that Neverwinter’s Elemental Evil expansion — yes, the one with Minsc and Boo — has been delayed. Originally planned to launch next week on March 17th, it’s been postponed until April 7th. Executive Producer┬áRob Overmeyer suggests the team bit off a bit more than it could chew and requests a few more weeks of patience for fine-tuning:

When we first announced Neverwinter: Elemental Evil in January, our team was excited to introduce the community to our biggest expansion launch for Neverwinter to-date. With our efforts to revamp nearly all of our in-game systems, including the introduction of the level cap increase and the new Oathbound Paladin class, our plan was more ambitious than we had anticipated.

Our Neverwinter team wants to ensure that we deliver our promise of a high quality expansion, and in order to do so, we need a few more weeks to fine tune the Neverwinter: Elemental Evil experience. Consequently, we have made the decision to delay the launch of Neverwinter: Elemental Evil to April 7.

We appreciate your patience as we take this extra time to make sure the Neverwinter: Elemental Evil experience lives up to our expectations. Our team is extremely excited for players to experience the new story, zones, critter groups and additional new changes coming to our game in April. Stay tuned to our blog and social channels as we continue to share additional details for Neverwinter: Elemental Evil.

PWE has previously called EE the game’s largest update since its original release in 2012. It includes the new Paladin class, a new level cap of 70, and new quests, feats, and special class powers (“slottable class feature powers”).
