Cryptic Studios and Perfect Worlds' MMORPG Neverwinter has finally reached the open beta phase of its development, with Cryptic cautioning fans that it will be treated as such and they want fan feedback.
It's a free-to-play MMO that lets you select between five classes and level them all the way to 60. Also accessible is the Foundry, the game's content creation system.
All characters created during the open beta will be transferred into the fully live version. Naturally the online D&D-inspired game has micro-transactions.
"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 PC crowd is quite hungry for Cryptic's Neverwinter and its led to some lengthy login queues, which the studio says they are addressing with maintenance tweaks. A new CG trailer has been released.
