Neverwinter's Elemental Evil Coming to Xbox One

By Joseph C, 2 years ago
Announced back in January, Cryptic Studios has now officially released the latest expansion for their free-to-play PC and Xbox One MMORPG Neverwinter, Elemental Evil, although only on PC for now.

This latest update to the continually growing Dungeons & Dragons-based MMORPG adds the long-awaited Paladin class, a fundamental staple since MMORPGs began, despite carrying various monikers in other games. As any veterans of other games in this genre will tell you, the Paladin combines the life-saving abilities of healers with the smash-and-bash strengths of the tank classes, creating a very group-friendly hybrid class.

Additional changes are the arrival of Minsc and his space-hamster Boo to the main city, an increase in the level cap from 60 to 70, new sets of quests, new class-specific slottable powers, and new feats to use.

Nathan Stewart, Brand Director of Dungeons & Dragons, has this to say about the expansion:

D&D players have fought the forces of Elemental Evil before but there is a new twist with cult leaders like Aerisi, the elven prophetess ruling the Cult of the Howling Hatred, and the three other elemental prophets playing a deceptive role as the story is brought to life for Neverwinter players.
Continuing their partnership with Wizards of the Coast, this expansion's arrival follows along with the related tabletop D&D adventure release, Princes of the Apocalypse.

Additional screenshots for the expansion can be seen below. Although PC players are already exploring the dangers of the expansion, Xbox One fans will have to wait just a little longer, with Elemental Evil set to release on the Xbox One version later this year.

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!
