Neverwinter: Elemental Evil expansion is coming to Xbox One next month

0

Slowly catching up to the PC version

It was only a month ago when Rise of Tiamat, the fifth expansion for the free-to-play MMO Neverwinter, was released on Xbox One. At the time, I noted that while it was a decent update, it still meant the Xbox One version of the game was really far behind its PC counterpart, which will be releasing its seventh expansion next week.

Apparently Perfect World was listening, as they have now announced that expansion number six, Elemental Evil, will be coming to the Xbox One in September. Elemental Evil on Xbox One will incorporate the additions of four smaller expansions from PC: Elemental Evil, Fury of the Feywild, Shadowmantle, and Curse of Icewind Dale.

This is going to be a really, really big expansion for Neverwinter: raising the level cap to 70, adding in a whole new questline fighting against elemental cults, and Icewind Dale was added as a new zone to explore too.

There is still no word on when the upcoming Strongholds expansion will make the jump to the console, but considering I haven’t finished the Elemental Evil content yet, it should be enough to keep people going into it fresh interested.

If you want to read more about the additions Elemental Evil includes, you can do so on the Arc Games website. 

I really like Neverwinter. Considering two million people play it on Xbox One (according to Perfect World), it's nice to see the game slowly trying to get some sort of parity between versions. It's a shame Strongholds won't be getting a simultaneous release though.
