PAX West 2018: PWE announces Neverwinter’s humorous The Heart of Fire module

Perfect World isn’t just using PAX West this year to announce a new module for Neverwinter: Penny Arcade itself will soon be woven into the fabric of the game.

“Today, Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a leading publisher of free-to-play MMORPGs, and Cryptic Studios announced Neverwinter’s latest module, The Heart of Fire featuring Acquisitions Incorporated; the famed Dungeons & Dragons adventuring company created by Penny Arcade’s founders. Coming to PC on November 6, the latest story for the free-to-play MMORPG whisks players across the Sword Coast in an original Acquisitions Incorporated adventure, penned and voice-acted by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik of Penny Arcade fame, along with Amy Falcone as Walnut Dankgrass.”

If you were looking for something super serious, this module is… not it. “Players begin an expedition throughout the Sword Coast that grows more ridiculous with every request: infiltrate a Beholder convention, battle sky pirates in the Acquisitions Inc. airship and rescue royalty culminating in a marvelous new Skirmish,” the studio says. “Additionally, the Professions system is receiving an overhaul which will allow players to own and manage their personalized workshop in Protector’s Enclave.

While the module itself doesn’t have a date yet, an “early look” will be available at the Neverwinter booth at PAX West this weekend.

That actually sounds more interesting than… well, anything else in Neverwinter. I always lost motivation to play only halfway to level cap. If this new content is available for non-top-level players, maybe I’ll reinstall that and check it out.

Green flame! Too bad the game doesn’t really appeal to me that much.
