For anyone with a little interest in role-playing games of all varieties – and specifically Dungeons & Dragons universe – Neverwinter should be a familiar place. In a few months you wil be able to pay the city a visit once again.
Atari Europe and Cryptic Studios have announced that an RPG with the simple title Neverwinter is in development for PC with an intention to launch in the fourth quarter of 2011.
The game will be a classic D & D adventure and developer Cryptic is working closely with Wizards of the Coast in the work of the game. Cryptic have previously been behind the titles City of Heroes City of Villains, Champions Online and Star Trek Online. Bioware is however not involved this tome around.
Neverwinter is a team-based RPG where you can choose from five D&D classes and form cooperative groups of five, either with friends or with CPU allies. Players can also create their own stories and quests using a system known as the Forge.
Something that bodes well for the game is that the best-selling author R.A. Salvatore has been involved in creating the backstory. Salvatore’s first book in a new Neverwinter trilogy, Gauntlgrym, is already available if you want to get in the right mood right away.
