Neverwinter has gotten one of those newfangled open beta launch dates. The kind where it’s officially out, but not really. I always chuckle when a game goes into open beta release and a major issue (or lack of feature) crops up and people say “but its still in beta!” Meanwhile the developers are busy collecting that sweet sweet cash shop money.
In any case the launch date is set for April 30th and players can expect to progress through the world of Neverwinter with nary a character wipe in sight. Those who purchased a Founders pack will be granted access to an additional beta weekend starting on Friday, April 12th. The beta weekend will be focused on allowing players to try out the game’s four different professions: Leadership, Mailsmithing, Platesmithing and Leatherworking. Keep in mind this will not be a part of the open beta and characters made during this beta weekend will be wiped.
