MMORPG Info Logo Neverwinter Nights: MMO

This time last year a Neverwinters Night MMO was announced by Perfect World and Cryptic (previously, Atari was to be the publisher), as publisher and developer respectively. The game has had very little information released since that date, but a few key bits of information have been released.

Classes

It has been stated that there will be 5 classes, which, in keeping with typical Dungeons and Dragon’s roles, will most likely be Fighter, Barbarin (or Paladin), Wizard, Cleric and Rogue. No further information has been given on this matter.

The Foundry

Perhaps the most interesting feature announced as of now, is the fact that people will be able to design their own quests and dungeons, with traps, encounters and NPCs, among others, utilising “The Foundry” which will launch as part of the main game. No details have been given on whether rewards such as gold or experience will be available for these custom dungeons. You can see some (rather small) screenshots here if you are curious.

Backstory

The overarching plot of the MMO will be based off a trilogy of books by renown author R.A. Salvatore, with the first book, “Gauntlgrym”, already out. This should give player a rich story to go along with the rich city of Neverwinter, which has been in use in both the RPG games Neverwinter Nights 1 and 2, as well as the 1991 AOL MMO, by the same name.

Hopefully more details will come soon, as well as a release date, but until then you can keep track of the game and discuss it with other fans at the site and forum located at http://www.playneverwinter.com.

    According to an August 23, 2010 press release, players will become one of five classic Dungeons & Dragons classes and form a group of up to five; including other players or computer-controlled non-player characters. A player-created content system codenamed “Foundry” will allow players to create their own stories and quests.
