Neverwinter’s Cloaked Ascendancy expansion arrives February 21st

Neverwinter’s next big expansion finally has a name: Cloaked Ascendancy. The update is due out for PC on February 21st, to be followed on both consoles “later this year.”

“The Cloaked Ascendancy begins following the harrowing events of Storm King’s Thunder in the northern reaches of Faerûn, as adventurers return to the city to honor a fallen hero. However, Gyrion the Ascendant and other former residents of the Cloak Tower, ravaged and reformed by the Far Realm, appear ready to wield their awesome magical powers against Neverwinter as the Cloaked Ascendancy. Players will brave their way through the latest adventure zone, The River District, to experience a new campaign exploring the trials of these powerful foes and uncovering their hidden motives. The Cloaked Ascendancy culminates in an epic return to the new high-end dungeon, Spellplague Caverns, which is now firmly under the control of the Cloaked Ascendancy. Players will also experience a new skirmish, loaded with innovative gameplay, and the original Spellplague Caverns which will be returning as a leveling dungeon.”

PWE has already put out several blog posts on the River District area, including one on the baddies and a pair on the map construction and lore, so now’s a good time to get caught up!
