Everything you need to know about Neverwinter photo
Everything you need to know about Neverwinter
by Patrick Hancock

There sure are a lot of free-to-play MMORPGs out there vying for everyone's attention these days. Even MMOs that begin with a subscription-based model tend to eventually offer some free-to-play version down the line. It's definitely proven to be effective and lucrative at times, however it's also proven to be downright scummy and sleazy at others.

Neverwinter is hard to classify as belonging to either of the two camps. Early on, you'll likely hardly notice that it's a free-to-play title at all. It plays well, doesn't overtly beg anyone for money, and it even has decent quests and voice acting! However, the stories I've read about the late-game free-to-play shenanigans have put me off a bit from experiencing any sort of end-game content.

I'd be lying, however, if I said I wasn't enjoying myself so far.
