“The upcoming update for the free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons® MMORPG will have adventurers return to the Sword Coast to stop Valindra Shadowmantle and the Cult of the Dragon as they plan to bring undeath to dragons across Faerûn and beyond. Along with a new campaign, the module will introduce a new adventure zone, brand-new grappling hook traversal mechanics that have never been available before in Neverwinter, a new 10-player trial [The Crown of Keldegonn] featuring the grand return of Valindra, new heroic encounters, an Enchantment and Refinement overhaul and more. Additionally, another new content update will bring a new epic adventure, Scaleblight Mythal, which will soon be available for players to experience the ending of the Dragonbone Vale story, and offer a new massive neighborhood to explore. Adventurers will have access to this content on PC beginning February 8 and on consoles starting March 8.”
Did you catch the grappling hooks part?
“For the first time ever in Neverwinter, players will be able to zip around specific, designated areas of the Dragonbone Vale adventure zone with a new grappling hook, making exploration even faster and more epic than ever before. At the beginning of the module’s campaign, players will be given this tool to equip and explore all the areas the zone has to offer, with select areas offering story events and rewards.”
