Neverwinter Celebrates Its Fifth Anniversary, 18 Million Players And More

Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios are proud to announce that Neverwinter has officially hit its 5th year anniversary. In addition, nearly 18 million players have dove into the plane of Faerun (Forgotten Realms), which has 13 modules from Tyranny of Dragons, Underdark, Tomb of Annihilation and more. In that time the game also spread to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One and has seen a pair of new classes in Scourge Warlock and Oathbound Paladin, dozens of campaign settings, and much more. Fan-favorites from the novels and tabletop have come to life, like Minsc and Boo, Drizzt Do’Urden to add flavor to the hundreds of hours of gameplay. If that weren’t enough, the Ravenloft campaign setting is releasing next week. To celebrate, the Protector’s Jubilee will be underway starting June 23rd at 7 am PT on PC, and 10 am PT on Console.

Here’s to the first five and many more!”
