We’ve already been giving you the scoop on Neverwinter‘s expansion this Summer
called Fury of the Feywild. Cryptic has quite a bit lined up for players to explore
including the new zone Sharandar, some companion changes, new professions, and
Today we just got some information on a new Neverwinter endgame instance being added
to the free to play MMORPG. Malabog Castle will be the latest delve for players to
take on. While we only have very basic details at this time, it sounds like this new
addition to the Neverwinter endgame will be a standard party sized instance and will
feature multiple bosses in your path as you fight your way to the confrontation with
King Malabog himself.
What kind of bosses? Well let’s let Cryptic shed a little light here:
“What may you encounter inside Malabog’s Castle? Be on the lookout for Krol
Nightforge, a cyclops servicing King Malabog as his master smith. Survive that
encounter and your party will face King Malabog and his forces remaining in the
castle – you must succeed!”
One aspect of the expansion that hasn’t received a ton of explanation though,
probably because it really isn’t Neverwinter endgame related, is the Campaign
system. I’d like more details soon on this one. Right now it is described as “new
districts of the zone open up as you complete the story line” and I have to wonder
if this means phasing. If it does, I’m not sure how I feel about that.
I have to admit though, I like the update frequency we’re seeing so far out of the
team at Cryptic. Can they keep up the pace and address issues that already exist at
the same time? We’ll have to wait and see.
