Cryptic Studios is celebrating their 20th anniversary with content drops for Neverwinter and Star Trek Online along with free anniversary bundles for players. Champion Online players also get to claim an anniversary bundle by simply logging in to the game.
“It’s a proud moment for all of us at Cryptic Studios, to be celebrating our twenty-year anniversary,” said Cryptic Studios CEO Stephen D’Angelo in the official press release. “What the studio has accomplished through the years is nothing short of spectacular and humbling. We want to thank our fans for the amazing support they’ve shown us these past two decades. We are excited to continue our legacy of delivering epic gameplay experiences for franchises that players love, including the upcoming launch of Magic: Legends.”
The House Divided Klingon update for Star Trek Online is now live, kicking off the Year of the Klingon with a new Klingon-centered storyline, Martok from Deep Space Nine, two new episodes, a new 5-man Task Force Operation, three new patrols, and a month-long in-game event.
Neverwinter, on the other hand, continues the Infernal Descent storyline with the opening of the new Avernus zone. Here’s what to expect:
“Avernus sends players on a thrilling journey across the Wastes of Avernus, the first layer of the Nine Hells, where players will meet Lulu, a curious hollyphant and Archdevil Zariel’s old companion, who arrives in what remains of the Vallenhas stronghold. With a locked infernal puzzle box in the player’s possession, Lulu offers aid in opening it, the only problem is, she’s lost her memories. With the only hope of restoring her memories being to take an odyssey through Avernus, players must team up with two unlikely companions, Makos and the opportunistic merchant, Mahadi, to take on this dire quest.
Along the way, players can expect to explore new story content as they fight their way through hordes of demons to continue the Descent Into Avernus storyline and take part in a brand new Path of the Fallen campaign. This new journey also lets players drive infernal war machines, unravel the mysterious past of the Archdevil Zariel and experience how their actions directly impact and evolve the world of Avernus.”
