Neverwinter Weekender: 15 Million Players

weekenderlogoThe Neverwinter Weekender is our weekly column that contains everything you need to know to have some fun along the Sword Coast on the weekends! We’ll inform you guys about the events across all platforms, preview and review them as well as hand out some tips and guides. This is the perfect spot to start off your adventures!

15 million players

This weekend it’s time to celebrate the game and its community a bit! PWE announced that Neverwinter recorded a total of 15 million registered accounts! It’s a notable achievement and appropriate to acknowledge. Additionally as becky noted on our message board, they recognized the milestone by thanking the community rather than talking up the game. That’s a different tone than they’ve used in the past, and hence significant.

It also shows the game is as alive as it has ever been. It took 1233 days from open beta (2013-04-30) to 12 million accounts (2016-09-14). That’s about 9,732 accounts per day. Then it took another 225 days until 15 million, or 13,333 accounts per day. Although the game expanded to consoles to significantly improve its range, it’s hard to challenge that the brand is very much alive and rocking.

Shroud of Souls is right around the corner

Speaking of expansions, the PC crowd is one weekend away from the Shroud of Souls update. With the usual Double Experience bonus and Services Sale players can get their toons ready for Tuesday and can also stock up ZEN and keys for the upcoming lockbox. Consoles however probably look jealously towards PC gamers, because the Double Glory and corresponding sale is nothing to get excited about.

Driftwood Tavern #2

The community team will gather in two hours for the second edition of their new stream format. Here’s a timer so you have no excuse to miss it! Maybe StrumSlinger can explain why he featured one of the worst articles you can possibly find on the Arcgames website the other day? Apparently there is no other quality content around, or deliberately ignored 😈 .

We hope you guys will enjoy the weekend with our overview! In case you have any questions or remarks, make sure to put them in the comments or visit the corresponding thread on our message board!
