Neverwinter Announces Swords of Chult

By Dave Bricker, 4 months ago
Perfect World Entertainment announced a new Neverwinter expansion in their title update Tomb of Annihilation for Neverwinter. The additional mission is called ‘Swords of Chult.’

Port Nyanzaru has been invaded by jungle inhabitants. Defend the city against the jungle invaders in five-player skirmishes that change every time it is played.

PVP will also change in this patch, with all new rewards to be earned. PVP scales with every encounter. Armor penetration changes with PVP and control effects lessened in power. Rounding out the PVP changes are a set of new PVP gear and a permanent PVP solo queue.

Because playing an RPG is about item management, PWE is introducing a new item inventory management system. Options will be introduced into the UI that allows sorting all items, identifying all items, selling treasure, and tweaking other options. Also introduced is a bulk conversion refinement tool allowing for the bulk transferring of items to RP.

The last major change is for those who have multiple characters. You will have the opportunity to sign a Signet of Patronage for several endgame campaigns. These may be applied to alt characters with the intent of progressing faster through select campaigns.

‘Swords of Chult’ is available now on PC and is coming soon to consoles.
