Late last year Cryptic teased the Neverwinter community by promising them the ability to play a mini game of sorts with combat companions through the Neverwinter Gateway.  

For those of you unfamiliar with the gateway it is a web portal that allows players to access their account from any HTML enabled device. Within the gateway you can:

  • Access all of your characters and their characters sheets
  • Search your inventory
  • Perform crafting with your professions
  • Use the Auction House
  • Use the Astral Diamond Exchange
  • Use the Zen Market
  • Manage your guild
  • Access your in game mail 

I personally used the Gateway a lot to level up my crafting to avoid paying heavy astral diamond fees.

Now players will be able to send their companions on adventures when you cannot be in game. Sword Coast Adventures is a dice rolling game that by playing you will be rewarded with companion experience, items that include potions, runes, crafting materials and tokens for gear in game. 

There are even special adventures that award companions upon completion.

This is a smart move by Cryptic and finding ways to keep players engaged with their game even when they cannot play Neverwinter from their computer can only be good for business.

If you already have a never winter account follow this link to log in and get playing Sword Coast Adventures:

Didn't try this mini game on my phone yet but I know the normal stuff wasn't a real pleasant experience in my phones browser sadly. Thu Jan 09 2014 10:29PM Report
