On Thursday evening, 28th September 2023, the new Module 27, went live on all available Preview servers for early testing. This module is based on the Spelljammer Table Top campaigns. There is no official announcement for the module's live release date, as yet the content is still in developer mode.

The NWN team has taken a quick look at the new content and for those who haven't access to the Preview servers, we also grabbed some images and footage from the early intro quests for you all.
As with many new modules, the Light of Xaryxis campaign begins with Sgt. Knox and the quest, "Falling Stars"...

Well, this looks a little familiar.... Siege anyone?

What enemies will we face? One's with alot of Control effects!
Control Effects you say??.... Yep! Especially on some bosses.... Here is a summary run through of the first few quests going into the new campaign:

To gain access to one of the console servers, you will need to contact Julia (Nit0cris) on the email below
Make sure you note which console platform you wish to access somewhere in the subject line and also include your Xbox Gamertag/PSN ID in the email.
