Neverwinter Dragonslayer update revealed, coming in June

Neverwinter Dragonslayer

Gearbox and Cryptic Studios have announced the 23rd module for Neverwinter during the Wizards of the Coast’s Dungeons & Dragons Direct. Dragonslayer, will launch on PC (Arc Games, Epic Games Store and Steam) and PlayStation and Xbox consoles this June.

Below you can find the official description of Dragonslayer, but this includes spoilers that are best avoided by those who are yet to complete the latest expansion. Dragonbone Vale.

Following the events of Dragonbone Vale, the Shield of the North successfully drove Valindra Shadowmantle out of the Sword Coast, but not before she managed to cast a flawed version of the Scaleblight Mythal. The malevolent spell awakened countless dragons to the phenomenon of dragonsight, twisting their motivations and driving them to wild rage. The call for help sounds out once more in Dragonslayer, where players will need to hunt down these deadly dragons, alongside fellow dragonslayers in hopes of saving the Sword Coast. 

Dragonslayer is going to introduce a new Dragon Hunt system that lets them become one of Smeriduk Dragonbone’s mighty dragonslayers to counterattack dragons in their very lairs. You get to fight various dragons of different ages (Young, Adult, Ancient), and each dragon will feature a unique challenge, lair and reward types.

You can check the Dragonslayer reveal trailer below. On a side note, publisher Perfect World was recently acquired by Embracer Group, which also purchased Gearbox Entertainment. That is why moving forward you may see Gearbox Publishing as the new publisher for Neverwinter.
