With the release of Neverwinter on Xbox One soon at hand, we thought we might take a moment to let our beloved community know what will be available at its release. Like we mentioned in our Neverwinter Xbox One Devstream, the content will be a little different between the PC and the Xbox One versions, so let’s take a look at what you can expect to see when Neverwinter comes to Xbox One in early 2015!
Neverwinter will launch with the Tyranny of Dragons expansion, which means that it will include all seven classes that were present at Tyranny of Dragons’ release. This includes the Guardian Fighter, Great Weapon Fighter, Control Wizard, Trickster Rogue, Devoted Cleric, Hunter Ranger, and Scourge Warlock. All class balancing that is currently on PC will also be brought to you on the Xbox One. Our newest class, the Oathbound Paladin, will be coming to the Xbox One version in a later expansion.
The story and campaign content will function a bit differently than it did on PC. At launch, Neverwinter will include all the content from the base game and the Tyranny of Dragons expansion. This means that the Xbox One version of Neverwinter will include all dungeons and skirmishes that were present at the PC version’s launch in addition to the ones added with Tyranny of Dragons. The Sharandar, Dread Ring, Icewind Dale, and PvP campaigns as well as the Gauntylgrym zone (along with the dungeons and skirmishes associated with them) will be released on Xbox One in later expansions.
The Xbox One servers and character rosters will be separate from the PC’s, providing players with a fresh start in the Forgotten Realms. While Xbox players won’t be battling alongside their PC counterparts, they will be able to traverse the Sword Coast with friends from around the world on an international server! All playable races will be present at Neverwinter’s launch on the Xbox One. This includes the default races and all premium races such as the Menzoberranzan Renegade and Dragonborn will be purchasable with downloadable content.
As you can see, there’s much to be excited about in Neverwinter and the Forgotten Realms on Xbox will only get better. Want more Xbox-related Neverwinter news? Click the nw-xbox tag at the bottom of the blog!
