In addition to the above, which comes by way of a recent press release, Perfect Word and Cryptic also revealed Halloween events for Neverwinter set to kick off on Tuesday, October 29th, 2013. The Neverwinter festivities will last for six days and include the Masquerade of Liars festival.

"The Masquerade of Liars is a festival of frivolity and misrule. It celebrates costumes, treats, and the freedom of appearing to be someone or something you're not. Illusionists wander the streets and entertain the crowds with phantasmal transformations, appearing as monsters and notables to the delight of all. If you are a prankster or jester, you'll enjoy tricking friends or strangers – and possibly scaring them!"

Additional deatls about the upcoming Neverwinter events will be revealed in a new blog soon, presumably prior to its release tomorrow. But in the meantime, you can check out the other events above by visiting each game's respective website.
