Exclusive Video Reveal of Neverwinter's Mount Hotenow Region

Updated Mon, Feb 11, 2013 by gunky

We had a blast with Neverwinter's first beta weekend, logging all the play time we could manage over the course of a hectic few days. During those few days, Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment gave us an exclusive video look at the high-level region, Mount Hotenow, which lies east of the fabled city of Neverwinter.

Even nature itself besieges Neverwinter. Several decades ago, nearby Mount Hotenow erupted, nearly destroying the city and carving the Chasm deep into the ground. A group of fire giants now plans to ignite a second eruption – unless they can be stopped by the heroes of Neverwinter.

This adventure zone is geared towards high-level characters, and heroes will have to contend with some of the most iconic enemies from Dungeons & Dragons lore. The fire giants can manipulate the fire of their environment, creating powerful area of effect strikes to sear the slow-footed. Keep an eye to the sky as well, for the volcanic heat of Mount Hotenow is the perfect home for a red dragon...

Worse still, the true source of the Mount Hotenow’s eruption was the stirring of an ancient Primordial. Once they fought the gods themselves; now this one sleeps fitfully under the mountain, its power waiting to explode. Without the intervention of heroes, the fire giants will awaken the Primordial and wreak destruction on the entire Sword Cost. Will you answer the call to arms of Neverwinter?

The next Neverwinter Beta Weekend is March 8 - 10.


Don't feed the trolls folks.

Wow, it is AMAZING how much that reads like those newsletter offers we get in the mail and online. Well I promise not to judge you. I shall let TTH do that. Consider this conversation over, and I hereby give mods permission to delete my replies if AfterFX's replies are edited or removed.

I want to say "TEN TON HAMMER IS AWESOME!!". This is one of the only few websites, that Perfect World wasn't able to convince to cause problems for me. Ten Ton you have definitely got a new reader, especially when it comes to all my gaming reviews and needs. THIS WEBSITE (www.TenTonHammer.com) IS TRUST WORTHY AND AWESOME!! By the way, SCREW MMORPG.COM, that website is heavily linked to Perfect World. They just are somehow. Erased me after 1 comment, and called it spam. That website (MMORPG.COM) is biased bull sh*t.

MMOG developers love infographics. They love blowing our minds with statistics such as "2 billion characters made! That's as many McDonald's have been eaten in the last 5 minutes!. Sure enough, Neverwinter now has one.
