Neverwinter MMO beta weekend begins Friday


8:00 PM on 02.06.2013



This weekend, beginning February 8, the free-to-play Neverwinter MMO will be opening its doors to select beta testers and will run until the February 10. You can sign up for a chance to get in on the official website, or you can buy a Founder's Pack and be guaranteed access. Founder's Packs begin at $19.99, and go all the way up to $199.99, with various benefits.

The beta weekend will include three playable classes, the Rogue, Cleric, and Fighter -- staples of the fantasy universe. Content up to level 30 can be accessed, including companions and mounts, which sounds like plenty for a weekend. I'm pretty excited for Neverwinter, so long as it resembles the older Neverwinter titles I've come to know and love.
