Neverwinter Rise of Tiamat Expansion Trailer

By Joseph C, 1 year ago
As far as successful free-to-play MMOs on PC go, Neverwinter ranks right up near the top. The game has since successfully made the jump to consoles with the release on Xbox One earlier this year.

As we previously covered, Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment are now bringing the latest PC expansion over to Xbox One players as well, with the upcoming June release of the "Rise of Tiamat" expansion for Neverwinter.

In the expansion, an extension of the currently-running Tyranny of Dragons campaign and the now-live Siege of Neverwinter event, players will take on the Cult of the Dragon as it attempts to resurrect the five-headed dragon goddess Tiamat from the Nine Hells. Fellow Dragonlance fans among you may know her better as Takhisis, Queen of Darkness (although debate rages on this point).

The expansion will include a 25-player battle, the Well of Dragons legendary dragon graveyard, and will conclude the final chapters of the Tyranny of Dragons campaign for those that have worked their way through up to the stopping point. Watch the trailer below while you sharpen your swords, polish your talismans, and ready your spell components.

The "Rise of Tiamat" expansion is set to release on Xbox One sometime this month, although no firm date is set.

I've been gaming practically my whole life, starting around when I was 5 or 6 years old with an Atari 2600 and progressing through nearly every console ever released apart from the Wii U. I'm a completionist by nature, but am trying to move away from chasing every-higher gamerscore and just focusing on enjoying the great games that are all around me. We'll see how successful I am. I've been on TA since 2009 but have become much more active on the site in the past couple of years, and look forward to seeing it grow now that the XB1 app is getting it some much-deserved exposure!
