It brings a new adventure in which players will hunt a variety of deadly dragons and it will launch in June on PC and consoles.

Neverwinter has been diving deep into lore and quests related to dragons. Previously, we saw the Scaleblight Mythal module come out, bringing a dragon cult for players to contend with as well as a deadly curse that threatened to bring undeath to dragons across the land. With Dragonslayer, it looks like players are being offered new opportunities to chase after and more dragons to fight against in Smerdiuk's service. What’s more, players will find that the dragons are even more interesting in combat with revamped attacks, spells, and the ability to take flight during battle. Finally, the fan-favorite Temple of Tiamat trial has been revamped in both the Normal and Master difficulty.

With less than a month until Neverwinter’s Dragonslayer module comes out, dragons are about to become a threat in the game like never before. Stay tuned for more details and updates here at Shacknews.
