Sea of Moving Ice in Neverwinter is Coming to PC
A new update has been announced for Neverwinter by Perfect World and Cryptic Studios - Sea of Moving Ice update will hit PC this November.
Neverwinter's next update for its Storm King's Thunder campaign on PC is the Sea of Moving Ice, which introduces a new zone, travel options (like a kayak), artifact weapons, treasure hunt, a 10-player battle, and a fishing minigame when it launches November 8. The new material for this free-to-play massively multiplayer online role-playing game continues the roll out of Dungeons & Dragons' latest storyline, which has giants rampaging around the Sword Coast (where Neverwinter and its adventure zones sits).
To get around parts of the zone, where icebergs are floating around on the Sea of Moving Ice, you'll in little kayak-like ships. It's a change for how you travel in Neverwinter, as before, you either walked and ran or used a mount, like a horse, tiger, or monster such as the Gelatinous Cube.
Players can hop in their new nautical vessel and travel through the Sea to gather support for the battle ahead. Along the way, they'll be able try their luck at a newly built fishing system, go hunting for scraps of a treasure map, and uncover lost relics to earn artifact weapons far stronger than any before.
This module focuses on attacking the Frost Giant Jarl Storvald, who's trying to use the Ring of Winter (one of the most famous artifacts in the Forgotten Realms D&D setting) to bring a frozen fate to the Sword Coast. It concludes with a massive 10-player battle against the evil behemoth. But it also has some fun side-trips, like fishing.
This will be the 11th expansion/update to Neverwinter since it launched on Xbox One in March of 2015 and has expanded to over 12 million players across all platforms. It's still unknown on whether PvP nautical battles will be available at this time, but surely it will be clarified prior to launch.
So do you look forward to it?
