The MOP Up: Neverwinter comes under siege


The Cult of the Dragon is throwing the city (and game) of Neverwinter under siege once more, and players are going to need to suit up for an epic event that will take place from now through December 13th.

The event is only taking place on console, and Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players can earn a siegebreaker griffon mount, a champion’s charger, dye packs, and more from participating.

Weird random news about Neverwinter. Certainly a lot of stuff to talk about, but the Siege event is probably the least interesting topic.

Antaria Online seems nice, i’ll give it a try, for $1 i don’t mind early access … Nintendo ending the silly NCP is good news, i hope to see more content now for Nintendo games.

“The new name “KRAFTON” was inspired by medieval craftsmen’s society called “Craft Guild.” It represents our tenacious pursuit of craftsmanship to make great games, as well as the infinite challenge of our daring developers. Aiming at a global game production powerhouse, KRAFTON Game Union will keep the development works on.”

What a load of wank, I’m glad that Bluehole will still be used as the name and logo in front of TERA for now as the studio name, it’s got a better ring to it IMO.

Also gotta’ love Antaria Online’s social media breakdown, as if sharing a post to Twiter is a massive ordeal.
