Neverwinter is Cryptic and Perfect World’s proof that Western free-to-play videogames, when built from the ground up, can compete with even the biggest boxed subscription titles. Starting from today, the pair invites all gamers to put that claim to the test. There will be no character wipes or restricted access after the start of open beta, now available to all.
“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, 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.”
