Mod 12 for Neverwinter has released today on PC. The Tomb of Annihilation brings a number of changes to the game, including a campaign, adventure zone and dungeon. It will be on Xbox next month, as the expansions usually land on Xbox anywhere from 4-6 weeks after the PC launch date. 

The jungle peninsula of Chult may hide the source of the Death Curse threatening the Forgotten Realms, so adventurers travel to the new social hub of Port Nyanzaru to begin their expedition. In an all-new campaign, players must discover the source of the curse, while protecting themselves and fending off Yuan-ti, undead and dinosaurs. Along the way, adventurers will team up with old friends Minsc, Boo, Celeste, the famed explorer Volothamp Geddarm, and an unexpected ally. A complete list of new features in Tomb of Annihilation includes:

  • Chult Jungle Adventure Zone: Explore the Soshenstar River Basin, locating clues and tracking the source of the mysterious Death Curse. Close encounters with prowling dinosaurs and deadly Yuan-ti await adventurers.
  • Port Nyanzaru Social Hub: The port will not only grant adventurers safety from the beasts of Chult, but also act as a home away from home. Vendors, quest-givers, and more await in this new destination.
  • Tomb of the Nine Gods Dungeon: An end-game experience is now available for seasoned adventurers with a knack for feats of daring. This dungeon features powerful bosses, ancient puzzles, and a challenge unlike any before in Neverwinter.
  • Monster Hunts with Volo: The famed explorer and all-around monster authority ventures to Chult as well, offering players the opportunity to track and catalogue local beasts. D&D game designer and all-around maestro, Chris Perkins voices the famous Volothamp Geddarm in Neverwinter.
  • Tomb of Annihilation Campaign: Following the conclusion of the Death Curse storyline, players will open up an end-game campaign exploring the Soshenstar River, leading into the heart of Chult.

The dungeon brings a huge change to the game. Rather than simply beating hordes of enemies to win, we will now need to face off against puzzles in order to complete our quest. No footage is available yet of the dungeon, but we are looking out for it for you. Item levels gear will increase, with gear level 500 items be available by purchase of Seal of the Brave. This is a new seal that will take the place of the Seal of Elements, which is being phased out of the game. Those Element seals you have can be exchanged 3-1 or Seal of the Protector before they are removed. The Seal of the Brave can only be earned in the Tomb of the Nine Gods new dungeon. 

We'll look out for the Xbox One release date, and let you know as soon as we hear. In the mean time, check out the launch trailer below.
