Los Gatos-based Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment Inc. have  announced that the widely acclaimed free-to-play action MMORPG, set in the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast, has launched its second free module, Neverwinter Shadowmantle.

In this module expansion, players can travel to Neverwinter Woods' deepest region and fight through the Dread Ring campaign, play as the new Hunter Ranger class, explore a whole new Paragon Path and collect artifacts on their way to glory.

"Delivering new free content to our players is and always will be our highest priority," said Cryptic Studios Executive Producer and COO Craig Zinkievich. "To see Shadowmantle go live less than six months after official launch is incredible, and we couldn't be more excited to release this new content to our players. We also want to hear feedback about the highly anticipated Hunter Ranger class, so we encourage fans to try it and let us know what they think."

"Shadowmantle continues to fuel excitement and great adventures for D&D fans. Supporting great storytelling through our digital partners continues to be a priority for the brand and this latest module delivers on that promise," said Nathan Stewart, brand director for D&D at Wizards of the Coast.

Shadowmantle, the second module for Neverwinter, is a free content expansion in which players tackle the Dread Ring campaign. Deep within the Neverwinter Wood lays the Dread Ring, a massive structure built for ritual magic. Players explore this broken but still powerful region and fight Valindra Shadowmantle's army, including an epic battle with the lich herself. In addition to the Hunter Ranger class and new playable content, Shadowmantle features new collections, artifacts, and Paragon Paths.

Neverwinter is an action MMORPG that features fast-paced combat and epic dungeons. Players explore the vast city of Neverwinter and its surrounding countryside, learning the vivid history of the iconic city and battling its many enemies. In Neverwinter, players can create their own quests and campaigns with the Foundry, a powerful content creation tool that allows players to seamlessly integrate their adventures into the live game world.
