Neverwinter - Campaign System Plans
A new update on the Neverwinter website has details on a new campaign system being developed for release later this summer.
When we revealed the new content expansion Module, Fury of the Feywild, we revealed more details about Malabog Castle, an upcoming dungeon delve, and the Module's development in our dev blog. We're also ready to unveil new details about the Campaign System, a new meta-quest feature that allows players to unlock three distinct regions of Sharandar as you progress in Neverwinter.
Once Fury of the Feywild is live in Summer 2013, Sergeant Knox will advise players to travel to the new adventure zone of Sharandar where a new quest line will be introduced as well as the Campaign System. The system itself will be a new UI (user interface) window similar to the Queue or Professions window. In it, players will find Projects that they must complete in order to unlock Sharandar's other neighborhoods, the new Malabog Castle dungeon delve, and new passive powers for their characters.
How do players complete Projects and progress? The Sharandar zone itself will have many repeatable quests that give rewards which players will use in the Campaign System window. Also, players can complete solo instances and the five-man Malabog Castle to speed up progression within the Campaign System. Malabog Castle is unlocked via an early (and relatively quick) Campaign System Project before players are able to enter it. For solo instances, players can acquire a one-time use key that they can acquire while doing repeatable quests in the zone or purchase in game with a new currency that comes from the adventure zone.
