Cryptic Studios has announced that the upcoming Elemental Evil module for their free-to-play MMORPG, Neverwinter, may have been a bit more ambitious than originally thought. The new update, originally slated to release on March 17th, will add a level cap increase, the new Oathbound Paladin class, new stories, new zones, and new game changes but will have its release date pushed back a few weeks to April 7th.

Rob Overmeyer, Executive Producer for Neverwinter, had this to say about the delay, “Our Neverwinter team wants to ensure that we deliver our promise of a high quality expansion, and in order to do so, we need a few more weeks to fine tune the Neverwinter: Elemental Evil experience. Consequently, we have made the decision to delay the launch of Neverwinter: Elemental Evil to April 7.”

No one likes delays but with a game that has had its fair share of challenges with module launches, maybe a little more time for the biggest update to date isn’t such a bad idea.

  1. Yea i was so looking forward to paladin soon but delays are never bad as long as its not to long and a couple of weeks is nothing glad they are delaying if there are issues instead of rushing and there being tons of issues

  2. Sucks to see it delayed. Looking forward to play Paladin. It is a good thing though they want to deliver it with their expectations. Glad to see it not rushed.
