Atari and Cryptic Studios have today announced a brand new roleplaying game set in the Dungeons and Dragons world, Neverwinter. The relatively successful MMO developer has pegged Neverwinter as a “co-op RPG” and it’s due out for PC in Q4 of 2011.
Neverwinter gives players one of five classic D&D classes to choose from. They can them team up with AI or human allies to create a co-op team of five characters. Players will also be able to create their own quests and stories using a new content generation system that has been given the working title of Forge.
This actually sounds pretty damn hot. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this one. Keep an eye on the game’s official site right here for upcoming news.
