The Dungeons & Dragons-flavored, free-to-play MMORPG, Neverwinter, is getting its seventh free expansion next month. Strongholds challenges players to build up their own bases and defend them against onslaughts from enemy players, complete with a new PvP mode.

Strongholds contains the biggest zone Neverwinter players will ever explore, and it's filled with crafting materials you'll need to build up your own hall. Players can level up their buildings by performing quests, which will then feed back into their characters to make them stronger. Strongholds also introduces a new MOBA mode, where players will attempt to take down bases with the genre's traditional three-lane gameplay. For more info, watch the trailer below and check out the screens in the gallery.

Publisher Perfect World and developer Cryptic Studios released Neverwinter on PC in 2013 and on Xbox One earlier this year. The Strongholds expansion will be available August 11.
