Perfect World Entertainment Inc. and Cryptic Studios are pleased to announce that the widely-acclaimed free action MMORPG Neverwinter, set in the Dungeons & Dragons® Forgotten Realms® universe from Wizards of the Coast, is launching its first content expansion, Fury of the Feywild, on August 22, 2013. This free Module allows players to explore the enchanted woods of Sharandar, play as Sun and Moon Elves, collect new weapons and items, earn new rewards, encounter new creatures, and much more.

"We're excited to announce the release date of our first free expansion - what we and D&D fans call a Module - for Neverwinter." said Cryptic Studios CEO, Jack Emmert.

Perfect World Entertainment Inc. is also pleased to unveil first details for the Neverwinter Knight of the Feywild Pack and Feywild Starter Pack. Starting today, Neverwinter fans can get their hands on two new packs that will help them on their quests throughout Sharandar.

The right hand is out of my pocket with coin, in goes the left.

That aside, its still a fun game til you reach max level, like so many of the others.

1) No content for another month and a half? How long did they really think Gauntlgrym would last? Also the current endgame seriously lacks challenge.

2) The monetisation is out of hand, the founders packs were fine, but now they are just taking the piss. Will they be having these overpriced packs with every module? Will it be exclusive classes next?

3) It has been well over 60 days, where is Drow?

 

Just far too greedy. The sad thing is people would have actually spent more cash on the game if the prices were reasonable, like $5 for bags, outfits and companions, $10 for mounts.

An expansion for 60 bucks? So short after release for mostly fancy? Are they drunk??

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

The expansion is free, but one of the two new races (Moon elves, actually the most common elf in DnD) is locked away in a 60 buck pack. Its on par with the original founder packs, but I agree it is in poor taste when the game needs so much work to get long term appeal.

I see they are following same content pack monetization plan as STO.

Game is barely two month old and they release another 60 dollar pack.

Fun game until you reach level 60, then I found it incredibly boring and lacking in stuff to do.

It's still close to robbery. People want the new races, like Drow before, and they only sell it with heaps of glittery trash nobody really needs, just to crank up the price!

ANYTHING in this game is overpriced!

Sometimes i feel glad that i have an old STO account with 3 alts. I make 1500 zen a week from dilithium. I won't spend a dime and buy this pack through zen i made from playing STO.

But still i couldn't help but /facepalm to see another pack sold for 60 bucks  just after 2 months of release.

I'm sure they're making more than enough money as it is. The packs are actually a good idea, optional additions for a fee but the actual content is free.

umm...one, you can't buy the packs with Zen. Two, you can't transfer Zen from one game to another. So either you are lying, or don't actually play either game.

Another toilet bound MMO, I actually liked the combat, but the greed is too much.

Still no Drow?  Whatever happened to Drow with the official release?  And I take it the $200 rip off founder pack has their Drow race enabled?

And with the Moon Elf unlock, whatever happened to all races will be free?  I can see fluff races like the tattoo Drow granted their racial ability wasn't advantageous being paid for, but iconic races?  Racial unlock should be looks only, like the tattoos of that Drow tribe.

Seems like horrible CS decisions continue thanks to PWE.

What I didn't expect is em going against their word.  They specifically stated that races will be free.  I can see fluff races like you want a tattoo Drow, even though it was massively overpriced, but an iconic race like the Moon Elf? 

At this rate when they do add Dragonbound it will be only via a "founder's pack" like the Moon Elf.

Same, I was gonna try the game later on whenever they finally release some classes that really intrested me like a War Priest, Avenger, Paladin, Druid, or something.  But after this I doubt I will ever touch the game with a 10 ft pole.  Thk god I'll be busy as hell with school when school kicks up again and the Spring semester which by then ESO or Wildstar will be out to keep my attention with a fresh new MMO.

It pays off to do some research before investing in an MMO. Always be weary about first-time MMO developers and MMO-developers with a reputation for dishonesty or cashgrabbing.

The $60 founder pack was a good deal for me as it covered the cost of a mount and top tier companion.  The new pack is less appealing to me because I already have a mount and one default striker companion.

They are clever with words like Turbine which has never made the players happy.  I believe they said any class or race released at launch will always be free, not every class and race will always be free.

The race and mount don't warrant a purchase to me, but would be nice to have.  The 600k AD is currently worth approximately $18.75 with a Zen to AD conversion rate of 1:320.  In other words if you bought 600k AD right now it would cost about $18.75.  The rate is a little higher (325 - 329) for smaller quantities so I estimated the price conservatively.

If the mount is "blue" quality like the original founder pack then it would be approximately $20 - $25.  If the companion is "purple" quality and not a striker it would cost approximately $35 - $40.  Even if it's a striker it would cost about that much, but since the Dire Wolf is already a striker the practical value goes down, not to mention strikers are considered the least useful pet overall.

The additional character slot is okay I guess as is the other fluff junk, but nothing that adds a lot of value in my opinion.  Character slots are $5 for 2.  I already have 2 spares that I'm not using because I'm not interested in playing the other classes right now.

So, if you don't have those features already from a previous pack, then the $60 pack is a good deal if you plan on playing.  If you have the previous pack then the practical value of this pack goes way down, but isn't entirely worthless.  Overall, they still charge too much for their game.  It's fun, but slightly confining.  It really is themepark in the most traditional sense in that your character is narrowly directed in what and how you participate in the game world.  The foundry is a great sanbox creation tool, but at the end of the day you're still just making more rides with lackluster rewards.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile
