Neverwinter's Latest Module, Dragonbone Vale, Takes Players Back To The Sword Coast

Neverwinter is launching its next module taking players back to the iconic Dungeons & Dragons location of the Sword Coast in Dragonbone Vale, set to release on PC January 11th. Console players will be waiting until February 8th.

The upcoming module brings with it a new adventure zone, the Sword Mountains, as they try to stop the moon elf lich Valindra Shadowmantle, who has returned to work alongside the Cult of the Dragon.

Via this morning's press release:

"In Dragonbone Vale, the evil moon elf lich Valindra Shadowmantle has returned to threaten the Sword Coast alongside the Cult of the Dragon, who have gathered in the Sword Mountains as they plan to invoke the Rite of the Dracolich to bring undeath to dragons across Faerûn and beyond. To make it to the Scaleblight Summit and stop the Cult of the Dragon once and for all, adventurers, alongside the Heroes of Neverwinter and allied forces, will need to make their way through the four distinct neighborhoods of the Sword Mountains."

Alongside the new zone, players will have a new mechanic to traverse the landscape: a grappling hook. Cryptic states that this will make getting around the world a bit faster, as well as "more epic than ever before." Players will also have the chance to take on Valindra herselve as well as the bronze Dracolich, Palhabroithyn, in the upcoming 10-player trial, The Crown of Keldegonn. 

Coming also with Dragonbone Vale is an Enhancement and Refinement overhaul that is aimed at improving quality-of-life as well as bring all new enchantments to the MMO. Finally, more content is already announced to tie up the end of the Dragonbone Vale story in Scaleblight Mythal, which will hit on February 8th for PC, consoles on March 8th.
