Neverwinter is making old content new(ish) again with its new Challenge Campaign system

    
11

Over its five-plus years of existence, Neverwinter has bolstered its world with myriad different campaigns, and although more content is rarely a bad thing, many of these campaigns have become irrelevant as time has passed, meaning a significant number of zones and dungeons have been relegated to the shadows. Now, however, the folks at Perfect World Entertainment are hoping to bring them back into the spotlight with the introduction of the new Challenge Campaigns system.

In this new system, older campaigns that are not leveling zones are being gathered up and grouped together as Challenge Campaigns, which will be “scaled to offer a consistent challenge when adventuring in their zones.” And to encourage players to take on these campaigns, the devs are introducing three new weekly quests that will center on Challenge Campaigns. These weekly quests will reward players with currency for their associated campaigns as well as Hero’s Medallions, which can be exchanged for useful items such as enchanting stones, marks of potency, and companion upgrade tokens. The Challenge Campaign system is slated to live alongside a huge array of other additions and improvements in the game’s Undermountain expansion this spring.

I don’t know if we really need another meta for for the post-60 content, the layers and layers of systems governing each campaign are confusing enough as it is. My personal preference would be for them to continue what they started a year or so ago, adding in or ‘converting’ the boring, grindy campaign mechanics to more traditional quest-chains that get you through the campaign in the good-old fashioned way. Honestly, some of these zones are a flippin’ headache now.

So, NeverWinter is getting its copy/paste of STO’s Endeavor system. Big surprise.

If Neverwinter wants to “recycle” old content, why not “solo-fy” older content and permit players to bring along several companions? That I’d really love.

Out with the player-made content, in with the rehashing!

Yes, re-use content rather than let it go to “waste”! That ranger image looks rad, I happened to do one of my random “UPDATE ALL MY MMO’S!” over the weekend including this one. Kinda wanna spin it up again.

WE AREN’T ALONE!

I’ve scaled down from around 20ish to about a dozen or so. Granted I haven’t played most in years, but I like having them around and keeping them updated just in case I’m ever struck by a random urge to play them.

Yes I had somewhere over 15 too. My other PC because it has an SSD(256gb only) and has the large game called ESO(72gb) it has only 5 games. Else it would had been swarmed in installed mmo clients, lol

I’ve whittled my 443 Gb MMOG drive down to about a dozen permanently-installed games (of which about half of them I actually regularly play), with about 90 Gb free to rotate guests in and out. :D

Remember updates slowly eat space too, you need to have space for that too

Totally, yeah. There have been times in the past where I’ve sighed an uninstalled something totally, rather than let it do a huge update and eat more space than it’s worth to me. :D
