Default Neverwinter



Beta sign ups are happening, and they're having CBT weekends right now. Release date is supposed to be early 2013.

F2P MMOARPG based on D&D. I thought introducing an action element to something like D&D would be really stupid, but seems like they did it well. A lot of information about the game is still kept under sheets, but from what's been released so far, it seems really polished surprisingly, especially for a F2P. Saw a lot of thoughtful features, and the content so far seems true enough to a D&D base. Definitely something to keep an eye on.

Known of it for awhile but been too lazy to look at it more. Been planning on getting my 4E group to get into it assuming I can make my old GWF Dwarf Fighter so it can live up to the legend it created with his Knee Breakers.

If the race selection is expansive enough, I'll rush to try this game.

Open beta now.

Right, so the D&D lore is there, but the gameplay is only faintly D&D 4.0. If you expect close D&D gameplay, you'll be disappointed, but otherwise, it's at the very least decent. A huge amount of polish in the game, really surprising. I was cautious coming into something from PWE, but 15 levels in and smooth sailing so far.

I suppose the only downfall I can find is that the combat may become shallow.

The queue is ridiculous. What is this sht, 1998 North Korea?

Having a queue in this day and age is inexcusable.

Combat does drop off. 3 skills just isn't enough.




At least it's pretty. And seems to be really well coded...

Inventory space is a ***** though. I mean, you COULD play through the game with your shitty 16 slot bank and 2 inv bags...but you could also not shower. Buying inv bags currently cost about 500K AD, or $10 in the cash shop, or you can try the guild bank...which is 150 AD. God damn.

I play on medium setting, it looks really shatty. The background and everything else are pretty though. My character looks like it's from a Japanese pron with all the pixels.

Well, you get 12 more inv slots at level 30. Makes it more bearable. You still eventually will want at least one additional 24 slot bag though, for sure.

The engine is alright. Ok on the optimization, and has funtastic physics, including cloth! It's technically average, but they use lighting and the likes very, very well. Combined with good art and area design, the environments are really nice.

I'm liking the game so far. Playing on the Dragon server, but trying to avoid dungeons. Even though I have the graphics on very low I still lag bad when going with a party

The combat is more shallow than Vindictus, I doubt this game will last that long. The Foundry is the only remarkable thing about this game and even that has a pretty strict lack of customization. You can't actually make your own dungeons in the Foundry, you can only pick from pre-sets and then add mobs/NPCs where you will.

Meh, graphics are beautiful but the gameplay gets pretty boring with only the couple of skills. It's like they took LoL/Dota and tried to make it a MMORPG or something.

Don't think it's working out imo.
