An adventure campaign called Vecna: Eve of Ruin will be released on May 11, letting players engage in "a high-stakes adventure in which the fate of the entire multiverse hangs in the balance." The heroes begin in the Forgotten Realms and travel to Planescape, Spelljammer, Eberron, Ravenloft, Dragonlance, and Greyhawk as they race to save existence from obliteration by the notorious lich Vecna who is weaving a ritual to eliminate good, obliterate the gods, and subjugate all worlds.

A book called The Making of Original Dungeons & Dragons: 1970 - 1977 is being released on June 18 too. Wizards of the Coast described it as "the ultimate book showcasing D&D’s inception, including Gary Gygax’s never-before-seen first draft of D&D written in 1973."

The Quests from the Infinite Staircase adventure anthology will be released on July 16, weaving together six classic D&D adventures while updating them for the game's current edition (which will be compatible with One D&D). Exactly which adventures these will be hasn't been announced, but it will be targeted at characters between levels one and 13.
