On March 17, evil has a new name. Well, technically it doesn’t, it just has a new adjective: Elemental. As in Elemental Evil. As in the sixth expansion for Neverwinter. Which comes out March 17. Gee, this all sounded better in my head…
Yes, Neverwinter: Elemental Evil drops March 17, featuring villainous cultists, the new paladin class, a level-cap raise, from 60 to 70, and — I’m going to quote directly from the press release here — “the return of Minsc & Boo – the ranger and miniature giant space hamster from the Baldur’s Gate series.”
Miniature. Giant. Space. Hamster. Hey, I think I saw them jam at Reggie’s Crab Shack last Friday.
Perfect World’s expansion ties into the overall plan for the Dungeons & Dragons property in 2015, which is featuring a bunch of Elemental Evil-related stuff, calling on fans of tabletop and video games alike to “Uncover the deception.” How will players do that? Elemental, my dear miniature giant space hamster!
