“We’re incredibly excited to share the release date of Shadowmantle – our second free expansion”, said Cryptic Studios Executive Producer and COO, Craig Zinkievich. “With Neverwinter, our plan has always been to release massive regular updates that provide new unique online experiences with exciting new content for players to explore.”
In the new module, players will be tasked with the Dread Ring campaign, in which players will ultimately have to face Valindra Shadowmantle in all her lich-ness. Oh yea, I went there. Shadowmantle will also feature new systems like Artifacts and Collections, and new Paragon Paths for the original classes.
