A slight delay everyone.

It seems the PC players have to wait a little longer to see Neverwinter: Sharandar, which was supposed to be released today. But it will be delayed with a new launch date set on February 16.

The Neverwinter team revealed in a post that while the decision was difficult, it was necessary. The team added that over the past weeks they’ve been getting feedback on the combat rework and have since been working on it. They’re also focusing on graphical changes to the game engine, which has affected the game’s performance on the console.

With extra time, the team shared that they should be able to ensure that the game is stable across platforms. Speaking of consoles, there’s no word on any changes in the schedule so the March 9 release should still hold.

For new Neverwinter players, Sharandar was first introduced in the game’s first module Fury of the Feywild back in 2013. There have been lots of modules released after.

The upcoming module is bringing players back to Sharandar. Three episodes are set to be released for this new module with the first one titled Iron Tooth. For the first episode, players are taken to the Ruins of Malabog where they need to discover the truth about an elven dignitary who disappeared. Besides the Feywild lands of Sharandar, players can experience the New Sharandar social hub along with the Ruins of Malabog Adventure Zone.

The second episode is The Soul Keeper while the third episode is The Odious Court. No release dates have been revealed for these episodes.

New Patch

While the release of Sharandar got delayed, the Feast of Lanterns is still launching on February 11. In support of this new event, a patch has been released to update the rewards and the art.

Going back to the delay of the Sharandar module, this resulted in a lot of schedule changes as well. Extended to February 16 are:

  • 2x Sharandar Currency
  • 50% off Sharandar Campaign Buyout
  • availability of the Forsaken Lockbox
