Are you ready to hunt the most epic of dragons? Neverwinter’s latest module will have you doing just that.
Available as the twenty-third addition to Neverwinter, launching on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC (Arc, Epic, Steam) is the new Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons-inspired content. And not only should you be excited by that, but you should also finally raise a glass as we see the Dragonslayer module hit console and PC on the very same day.
But what exactly does it bring? Well, it’ll let Neverwinter players become one of Smerdiuk Dragonbane’s mighty dragonslayers as they will enter epic lairs and hunt down chromatic dragons from the D&D universe. It’s something which should well appeal to both longtime veteran players and new players, with plenty of thrilling adventures to look forward to in Dragonslayer.
There’s a new Dragon Hunt system added in too, letting adventurers go up against all manner of dragon – from the icy White Dragons to the Red and over to the Green Dragons, all of various ages. Each of these comes with its own challenges to overcome, lairs to explore and rewards to gather up.
But that’s not all and you’ll find that in this free-to-play action MMORPG, Neverwinter’s deadly creatures have been completely revamped with all-new attacks, spells and the ability to take to the skies. In addition, the D&D fan-favorite “Temple of Tiamat” trial featuring the beloved dragon queen, Tiamat, will get a major content update bringing new mechanics and challenges, along with Normal and Master difficulty options.
“It’s time for Adventurers across all platforms to join the hunt and become a dragonslayer,” said Brett Norton, executive producer for Neverwinter. “With Dragonslayer, we’re making Neverwinter an even more epic D&D experience by bringing Fizban’s new adventures to life. We’re introducing new content and remastering our existing dragons, including our epic trial against the dragon god Tiamat. Thanks to Dragonslayer, now is the perfect time for D&D fans, both new and old, to explore the Forgotten Realms.”

- Dragonslayer Campaign – Become a dragonslayer as you join Smerdiuk Dragonbane’s crew to hunt corrupted dragons threatening the Sword Coast.
- Dragon Hunt System – Adventurers can make progress in the new campaign by taking on dragon slaying adventures with the new Dragon Hunt System, which offers the following new content:

- Hunt Modifiers: Make hunts more or less challenging by applying hunt modifiers.
