Neverwinter Launch Date Set, First Expansion Revealed
After a remarkable Open Beta period, Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios have announced today that the Forgotten Realms based MMORPG Neverwinter will officially launch June 20th.
Neverwinter has garnered critical acclaim since entering Open Beta on April 30th, earning attention and praise for the fast, visceral action-based combat, as well as the user-creation tool, The Foundry which allows every player to create their own quests and content.
Along with a set launch date, Perfect World and Cryptic have announced the release of end-game PVE and PVP content, entitled Gauntlgrym and Neverwinter’s first expansion, Fury of the Feywild.
Gauntlgrym’s focus is a massive battleground, with both PVP and PVE, where players will fight for treasure unimaginable hidden within and ancient Dwarven city.
Fury of the Feywild is set to be the first free expansion Module for Neverwinter, which sets tells the story of the Fomorian Giants as they attempt to lay siege to the city of Sharandar. Additional news and details on Feywild will be released as Neverwinter gets closer to its launch date.
