Neverwinter Open Beta Begins April 30th, Beta Week 4 Previews Professions
The open beta for Neverwinter has been confirmed to begin on April 30th.
Neverwinter has been impressing the masses thanks to a spade of closed betas, and now the public will be able to sample the latest free to play MMORPG. We recently spent to time in Neverwinter and were impressed by its impressive Foundry feature along with the core gameplay.
“The direct response and support from the Neverwinter community during our Closed Beta Weekends have pushed us to make Neverwinter the best free-to-play MMORPG anyone has yet seen,” said Cryptic Studios Executive Producer and COO, Craig Zinkievich. “On April 30, we go into Open Beta. That’s when the world we’ve labored for years to build comes to life — that’s when every gamer can login and play what we’ve worked so hard to create. We could not be more excited.”
“We’ve never been in a better place launching a game,” said Jack Emmert, CEO, Cryptic Studios. “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.”
Founder members of Neverwinter will be treated to a early preview of the profession system present in Beta week 4 (Starting April 12 at 12:00pm PDT). These professions include: Leadership, Mailsmithing, Platesmithing and Leatherworking.
The Founder program is still open, new founders will also gain access to the Week 4 beta.
