Neverwinter will enter open beta on April 30, adds professions system on April 12


Neverwinter, the forthcoming free-to-play MMORPG set in the Dungeons & Dragons universe, will open its doors to all comers on April 30, when the public beta will begin. In the meantime, a fourth beta weekend is scheduled for April 12, beginning at 12:00 PDT, which is 20:00 GMT. This latest beta weekend will give players who purchased Founder’s Packs their first chance to try out the forthcoming professions system.

Those players will get sixty hours of play time in which they can get involved with things like Leatherworking, Mailsmithing, Platesmithing, the nebulously-named Leadership and Photocopying, though I may have made one of those up. Developer Cryptic Studios have said that there will be no character wipes once the open beta begins and they would like to remind you that it’s not too late to become a Founder.

If this appeals, or if you’d simply like to put your name down for the open beta, you can do sohere.
