Perfect World have announced another new expansion coming to Neverwinter this August in the form of the Storm King's Thunder.
In the tenth expansion for the free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons-based MMORPG, adventurers will experience a unique story about the rise of giants, based on the upcoming storyline from Wizards of the Coast. This expansion will be available for PC in August 2016 with content coming to Xbox One and the newly announced PlayStation 4 version, at a later date.
Similar to the Storm King’s Thunder adventure coming from Dungeons & Dragons later this year, Neverwinter: Storm King’s Thunder sees giants invade the world of Neverwinter. Adventurers will travel north to Bryn Shander – the heart of the Ten Towns – to investigate the sudden presence of frost giants in the region. Expansion content will bring players through three new adventure zones as they team up with popular characters from Dungeons & Dragons lore, including Catti-brie, Wulfgar and Harshnag.
“The yearly updates from Dungeons & Dragons provide us with a huge opportunity to build unique stories in Neverwinter,” said Rob Overmeyer, executive producer of Neverwinter. “We’ve been discussing the idea of giants returning to the Sword Coast with the team at Wizards of the Coast for quite some time. Adventurers will have several large changes coming their way when we launch Storm King’s Thunder on PC later this year.”
