Neverwinter enters open beta stage
Cryptic? Not for much longer! That’s right, after months of internal testing, Neverwinter has finally entered the open beta stage.
The major drawing point for this announcement is the unrestricted access to the game and its content creation system, known as The Foundry. Character progress will no longer be wiped and all skills, upgrades and customisations are ready to shape your progress in the Dungeons & Dragons inspired MMO.
“After four successful beta weekends and many months of internal Alpha tests, we are thrilled to be in open beta,” said Cryptic Studios Executive Producer and COO, Craig Zinkievich.
“On behalf of the entire team at Perfect World and Cryptic Studios, I’d like to thank the Founders, Beta Weekend participants, Alpha testers, fans, and press for their feedback and continued support in making Neverwinter the best game we’ve ever launched.”
The open beta also allows players to access the Neverwinter Gateway; a portal for accessing all of your in-game status information via desktops, tablets and smartphones. Users can even participate in the Auction House, craft items and check their mailbox from this handy little tool.
