Do you fancy yourself a lore buff? Searching out every book, every note, every sign, and every single inscription ever laid on any medium within an MMO? If you do I say good on you! I for one cannot muster the mental focus necessary to read small text within an MMO. I’m here to loot and pillage dammit! But alas I do enjoy a dash of lore from time to time.
Cryptic studio hears my cries and produces from its depths a trailer that meets the needs of the lore masses. A trailer that showcases how a monastery can be more than just a place where bald individuals go to reflect and throw punches faster than the human eye can see.
Ok so not all monasteries are for reflection or honing superhuman combat skills. In the case of the monastery within Helm’s Hold in Neverwinter, it is a place where demonic horrors corrupt the souls of the recently deceased or dying. Yeesh, not a good place for a relaxing day at the spa.
For those fearing the trailer holds nothing more than a disembodied voice speaking over landscape pans and concept art, fear not. The trailer comes equipped with plenty of in-game action for us to scrutinize and make early judgements about.
