Neverwinter: Strongholds is LIVE! Gather your guild members, construct your stronghold and write your names in the history of the Forgotten Realms. Adventurers will finally be able to take back their keep from the wilds and turn it into a place they can call home, but not before vanquishing the waves of enemies that stand at their door.
To help get everyone ready, we’ve released a LOT of information about Strongholds over the last several weeks. This post is your one-stop-shop for everything you could possibly want to know (and maybe more) about Strongholds ... if you don’t see it here, we probably didn’t write a blog about it. Thanks for following along, and we can’t wait to see you in game!
Stronghold Siege, the 20 vs 20 PvP mode in Strongholds will be available on September 15! Stay tuned for more information on this exciting addition to Strongholds!
Don’t forget about our community-built Stronghold, which will grant server-wide rewards for all if our thresholds are met. Make sure to retweet and share the official announcement on Twitter and Facebook, and to watch our official gameplay trailer above. Now head into the wilds to mark your territory! Will you conquer or crumble?
