'Neverwinter' (ALL) The Heart of Fire Module Comes To PS4 And Xbox One Next Month

by Rainier on Dec. 13, 2018 @ 3:18 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.

Neverwinter’s latest module, The Heart of Fire featuring Acquisitions Incorporated is coming to Neverwinter on PS4 and Xbox One on January 15, 2019.

Written by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, founders of Penny Arcade, the latest module for the free-to-play MMORPG set in the Forgotten Realms (and beyond), features popular Acquisitions Incorporated characters Omin Dran, Jim Darkmagic and Walnut Dankgrass (voiced by Holkins, Krahulik and Amy Falcone, respectively). The campaign leads adventurers on an exciting path through the ranks of the famous adventuring company, from eager intern to a grizzled, full-fledged team member.

Content for The Heart of Fire spans the entire leveling experience, allowing adventurers to begin experiencing Acquisitions Incorporated’s signature irreverent humor beginning at level 15. Seek a relic from Dungeons & Dragons’ past while weaving through a beholder convention, riding in the company airship and fighting alongside Jim Darkmagic inside the Manycoins Bank. The Professions system will receive an overhaul, allowing players to own their own workshop. In addition, we have also included a number of improvements to class balance and rewards, all arriving when the module releases on console early next year.
