After trying out something new with the exotic Tomb of Annihilation storyline, the developers at Cryptic Studios, along with their publishers at Perfect World Entertainment, are going back to the classics with their recent announcement of the Rafenloft module for their D&D-inspired MMO Neverwinter. The module, releasing June 26, 2018 for PC, will take the players to the mist-shrouded Barovia and pit them against the mighty vampire Strahd von Zarovich, as one should expect from a Ravenloft module. This new campaign will be accompanied by plenty of new content and mechanics, including meaningful day-night transitions.
Here's a brief mood-setting teaser trailer:
And a press release with some details:
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – May 10, 2018 – Today, Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a leading publisher of free-to-play MMORPGs, and Cryptic Studios announced Neverwinter: Ravenloft. The game’s 14th module transports PC adventurers to the gothic horror setting of Barovia starting June 26 (arriving later on consoles). The iconic campaign is a departure for Neverwinter and brings unique gameplay features that tie in to the dark domain of Ravenloft. The latest module for the free-to-play MMORPG set in the Forgotten Realms (and beyond) offers an all-new Campaign, the Adventure Zone of Barovia, Tarokka Card Readings by Madame Eva, Heroic Encounters, Endgame Dungeon (Castle Ravenloft), meaningful day-to-night transitions and more.
Unwanted guests appear in the Forgotten Realms leading adventurers to Madame Eva for a Tarokka Card reading that is unlike any other. The mists of Barovia pull adventurers to the Domains of Dread and into the land of the mighty vampire - Strahd von Zarovich. In the darkest corners of this foreign land, adventurers will find new stories from Quests and Instances; all-new Repeatable Adventures with newly designed Monster Hunts and Heroic Encounters, where the creatures of the mist must be destroyed; and expanded endgame progression with a new Campaign culminating in a journey into Castle Ravenloft itself. Heroes of Neverwinter must work together to free this cursed land from Strahd’s control.
Neverwinter is a free-to-play action MMORPG that features fast-paced combat and epic dungeons. Players explore the vast city of Neverwinter and its nearby lands, learning the vivid history of the Forgotten Realms while battling its many enemies. Neverwinter is available on PC and is free to play digitally on Xbox One (with Xbox Live Gold) and PlayStation®4 (PlayStation®Plus not required).
