Today, Perfect World Entertainment, on of the more famed publisher of those free-to-play MMORPGs, and Cryptic Studios announced Neverwinter: The Cloaked Ascendancy is releasing very soon. February 21st, fans of the epic fantasy MMO will be able to play the new DLC on PC. If you play on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 however, you will unfortunately have to wait until later this year.

“The Spellplague continues to cast a shadow over Neverwinter, as four mages torn from the Cloak Tower by a spellstorm return to usurp the throne. With this latest expansion for the free-to-play MMORPG based on the Dungeons & Dragons franchise, adventurers can look forward to several all-new features including a new campaign, adventure zone, skirmish and more.”

For The Cloaked Ascendancy, the story begins just after the agonizing events of Storm King’s Thunder. Fans will take their adventurers and return to the city to honor a fallen hero (no spoilers here!). However, Gyrion the Ascendant and other former residents of the Cloak Tower appear ready to wield their mighty magical powers against Neverwinter as the Cloaked Ascendancy, hence the name of the DLC.

“Players will brave their way through the latest adventure zone, The River District, to experience a new campaign exploring the trials of these powerful foes and uncovering their hidden motives.” The Cloaked Ascendancy climaxes in an epic return to the new high-end dungeon and fan favorite, the Spellplague Caverns. Unfortunately this area is now firmly under the control of the Cloaked Ascendancy so it is up to you to retrieve it from the enemy.

Players will also experience a new skirmish, loaded with innovative gameplay, as well as spend time in the original Spellplague Caverns which will be returning as a leveling dungeon.

Be sure to check out The Cloaked Ascendancy on February 21st on PC.
