Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios are excited to announce that the second episode of Neverwinter’s three-episode Sharandar module, Episode 2: The Soul Keeper is now available on PC (Steam, Epic Games Store and Arc), and will launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 May 13. Episode 2: The Soul Keeper introduces a new evolution of the revamped mystical land of Sharandar — originally introduced in Neverwinter’s first ever module, Fury of the Feywild — and has adventurers travel to the Mended Grove to learn why the dead haunt the lands. This new episode brings exciting new features to New Sharandar, including new areas to explore in a re-imagined adventure zone, a menacing new hag, new quests, new heroic encounters, new rewards and much more.
In Episode 2: The Soul Keeper, the blight has receded in New Sharandar, yet a new dark cloud has descended upon the forest and crept into the Mended Grove. One by one, graves long silent have been exhumed, with Eladrin elves long passed walking again as undead. Joining these reanimated corpses are Iliyanbruen elves corrupted by the Night Hag known as Mathilda Soulstealer, an ancient fiendish being who drains the life from any living thing she touches. To rid the Mended Grove of the undead, Neverwinter adventurers must band together to assist the elves of New Sharandar in defeating the soul-stealing Night Hag.
Across this new campaign, adventurers discover the Night Hag’s army haunts the Mended Grove. While exploring the vast grove, adventurers face some of the strongest of the Night Hag’s undead servants by taking on new bounties and challenging heroic encounters. The Waking Nightmares major heroic encounter tasks adventurers to strike down the powerful Keeper of Nightmares to free captured adventurers before they’re converted into undead. Adventurers strong enough to complete these deadly fights earn epic rewards from the Iliyanbruen elves of New Sharandar, including new companion gear and rings with new powers.
