Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios announced that Neverwinter’s 22nd module, Dragonbone Vale, will launch on PC (Arc Games, Epic Games Store, and Steam) on January 11th, 2022 and on PlayStation and Xbox consoles on February 8th, 2021. The upcoming update for the free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons MMORPG will have adventurers return to the Sword Coast to stop the Cult of the Dragon as they plan to bring undeath to dragons. Along with a new campaign, the module will introduce a new adventure zone, brand-new grappling hook traversal mechanics, 10-player trial, and more.
Additionally, another new content update will bring a new epic adventure, Scaleblight Mythal, which will soon be available for players to experience the ending of the Dragonbone Vale story, and offer a new massive neighborhood to explore. Adventurers will have access to this content on PC beginning February 8 and on consoles starting March 8.
In Dragonbone Vale, the evil moon elf lich Valindra Shadowmantle has returned to threaten the Sword Coast alongside the Cult of the Dragon, who have gathered in the Sword Mountains as they plan to invoke the Rite of the Dracolich to bring undeath to dragons across Faerûn and beyond. To make it to the Scaleblight Summit and stop the Cult of the Dragon once and for all, adventurers, alongside the Heroes of Neverwinter and allied forces, will need to make their way through the four distinct neighborhoods of the Sword Mountains.
For the first time ever in Neverwinter, players will be able to zip around specific, designated areas of the Dragonbone Vale adventure zone with a new grappling hook, making exploration even faster and more epic than ever before. At the beginning of the module’s campaign, players will be given this tool to equip and explore all the areas the zone has to offer, with select areas offering story events and rewards. Players who are looking for a deadly challenge can take on Valindra and the bronze dracolich, Palhavorithyn, in a new 10-player trial, The Crown of Keldegonn, and complete new heroic encounters to earn various rewards. Additionally, this module will include an Enchantment and Refinement overhaul that will bring new quality of life improvements and all-new enchantments.
