'Neverwinter' (ALL) The Cloaked Ascendancy DLC Announced

by Rainier on Jan. 31, 2017 @ 2:58 p.m. PST

In Neverwinter, players choose to become one of five classic D&D classes and team up with friends or NPCs to form five-person co-op groups. Players also create their own storylines and quests utilizing a user-friendly content generation system.

Players explore the vast city of Neverwinter and its surrounding countryside, learning the vivid history of the iconic city and battling its many enemies. In Neverwinter, players can create their own quests and campaigns with the Foundry, a powerful content creation tool that allows players to seamlessly integrate their adventures in to the live game world.

They might not be the most pleasant-looking creatures, but they are definitely a fierce bunch of savage and bloodthirsty warriors. By plaguing the civilized races, Orcs have always been a major threat to humans, elves and dwarfs. Laying claim to the area in the northern half of the old Tower District, Orcs have made the Cloak Tower in Neverwinter their home. Even the most courageous heroes will have to fight their way through the ruins of this district to put an end to the Orc domination and help restore Neverwinter to her former glory.

The Spellplague continues to cast a shadow over Neverwinter, as four mages torn from the Cloak Tower by a spellstorm return to usurp the throne. With the Neverwinter: The Cloaked Ascendancy expansion, adventurers can look forward to several all-new features including a new campaign, adventure zone, skirmish and more.

The Cloaked Ascendancy begins following the harrowing events of Storm King’s Thunder in the northern reaches of Faerûn, as adventurers return to the city to honor a fallen hero. However, Gyrion the Ascendant and other former residents of the Cloak Tower, ravaged and reformed by the Far Realm, appear ready to wield their awesome magical powers against Neverwinter as the Cloaked Ascendancy.

Players will brave their way through the latest adventure zone, The River District, to experience a new campaign exploring the trials of these powerful foes and uncovering their hidden motives. The Cloaked Ascendancy culminates in an epic return to the new high-end dungeon, Spellplague Caverns, which is now firmly under the control of the Cloaked Ascendancy.

Players will also experience a new skirmish, loaded with innovative gameplay, and the original Spellplague Caverns which will be returning as a leveling dungeon.

Neverwinter: The Cloaked Ascendancy is releasing for PC on February 21, following on Xbox One and PS4 later this year.
