Cryptic summons open beta for the Neverwinter MMO

Clean your dungeons and feed your dragons, kids — Neverwinter is about to enter open beta next week.

Publisher Perfect World Entertainment announced today that Dungeons & Dragons Neverwinter will open up to millions of gamers on April 30 with an unrestricted beta. Neverwinter is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online role-playing game for the PC set in the Dungeons & Dragon table-top gaming universe.

“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,” Cryptic Studios executive producer Craig Zinkievich said. “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.”

Neverwinter Founders, players who already committed to in-game purchases, will also get another 60-hour trial weekend beginning on April 12. Gamers that bought one of the Founder packs will also get early access to the open beta.
