Neverwinter is the MMORPG that keeps on giving. Not long after the release of The Cloaked Ascendancy, there’s a new update coming on May 2 for PC and Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this spring – Shroud of Souls. This update will close the story of the Cloaked Ascendancy and brings several quality of life updates to Neverwinter, including a new adventure where players have to battle a new foe, the Loadouts feature, a new Stronghold Siege event, a new Guild Hall social space and more.
The story of the Shroud of Souls is as follows: “In the wake of the Cloaked Ascendancy’s occupancy of the River District, a mysterious dragonborn necromancer emerges wielding a powerful artifact, the Shroud of Souls. Released from beneath the River District, she now controls an army of wraiths, and is set on summoning even more powerful spirits to lead her forces. Adventurers must set out to stop this evil plan and restore peace to the River District once more.”
Shroud of Souls brings the Loadouts feature, allowing players to create customized character builds, complete with gear configurations, for quick swapping across Neverwinter’s PvE, dungeons, PvP and more.
