Charles Gray, senior content designer for Neverwinter
, and Patrick Poage, staff environment artist, teamed up recently for a developer vlog showcasing new content making its way to developer Cryptic Studios' free-to-play title Neverwinter
The "Tomb of Annihilation" is inspired by Wizards of the Coasts' latest storyline where gamers will arrive in the Jungles of Chult and try to find out the cause of a death curse plaguing the inhabitants. A brand new dungeon, the Tomb of the Nine Gods, will come with more traps, puzzles, and a difficulty level that will wipe the floor with your team more times than you will openly admit. Bosses will come with brand new, never-seen-before mechanics and players will need to have a certain item level requirement to even take on the new dungeon. Learn more in the following video:
The new content for Neverwinter
