We have great news for all of those that have not yet been able to access the closed beta for Neverwinter Online. Starting April 30th PC gamers will be able to access the free-to-play title’s open beta! Could this get any better? Well, Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment have announced that there will be no more character wipes after the start of the open beta.
Those who have been dedicated enough to purchase a Founder Pack will receive exclusive access in testing the new professions system on Friday, April 12th. This will mark the start of the 60 hour “Beta Weekend 4” event allowing the Founders to simultaneously advance in four separate professions: Leadership, Mailsmithing, Platesmithing, and Leatherworking. CEO of Cryptic Studios, Jack Emmert had the following to say:
We’ve never been in a better place launching a game. While the entire team is focused on launching Neverwinter’s Open Beta on April 30, we still wanted to thank those committed Founders who stuck with us. Since the beginning of Neverwinter’s Beta Weekends, our Founders have shown us that Neverwinter offers engaging game mechanics, unique features and a gameplay experience that is parallel to subscription or paid games. They have become our biggest supporters and we wanted to give them Beta Weekend 4 as a token of our appreciation.
Upset that you are not a Founder? Don’t you fret because anyone is still able to sign up and purchase a pack (here). Gaze at the new Dungeons and Dragons “What is Neverwinter” trailer below to see what new adventures await you.
