Neverwinter’s Fury of the Feywild is now live. If you’ve not been in the loop the last few months this is the first in a series of module updates coming to Neverwinter. The content expansion focuses on an attempt by Fomorian Giants to take the Elven outpost of Sharandar. Players are able to play as Sun and Moon Elves, explore the enchanted woods of Sharandar, and much more.
The new zone and content aren’t the only additions, there is also new Feywild gear which has a Feywild, plant inspired look. Two new professions, Weaponsmithing and Artificing enter the world and allow players to create gear and craft some of the best weapons available.
Additionally some quality of life changes have been introduced. Players are now able to upgrade the quality of their companions using Astral Diamonds. This allows players to upgrade the quality of the companion instead of using a new companion. A new campaign system has been introduced which allows players to unlock districts of Sharandar as they progress. And finally a new Drag and Drop 3D editor which will allow Foundry authors to edit asset properties and place most assets while in 3D preview mode. Recently we interviewed Lead Producer Andy Velasquez about the Fury of the Feywild update. You can read it here.
And while most people will be focusing on Fury of the Feywild today Neverwinter’s Lead Producer Andy Velasquez released a State of the Game address in which he expressed excitement at the new release and looked towards the future. Specifically he mentioned new classes and new Paragon Paths. They have the goal of introducing a new class and more Paragon Paths for all classes by the end of the year. He also talks about how important the Foundry is to Neverwinter’s success, and how gameplay balance changes are being approached.
Fury of the Feywild is now available on live servers and two Feywild packs are available for purchase for $19.99 and $59.99.
