Developer Cryptic Stuidos
just announced they will be hosting a closed beta for their upcoming MMORPG Neverwinter
. The Forgotten Realms is by far one of my favorite settings when reading books and playing video games, Baldur's Gate
anyone? It's good to see that there is a developer who is still making games in this setting. The beta, if you are invited, will take place February 5th through February 8th. You can sign up for the beta by going to http://www.playneverwinter.com/xbox
was first announced
last year, it was tagged for a timed release with the Chinese Xbox One launch. Since then, the game has only seen a grand total of 6 players, if you go by tracking on TrueAchievements. Here's hoping that this closed beta gets some interest in the game and more players will join the fold. The game will feature all previously released content for the PC when it releases.
Here is a brand new video showcasing the Xbox One version of the game:
As well as some new screenshots:Nevewinter
is expected to launch sometime in "Early 2015". Will you be signing up for the beta? I know I will be! Here's hoping that we'll be able to transfer our beta characters over to the release version.
