Neverwinter co-op RPG becomes Neverwinter MMO

0

If you have a fabulous memory you may recall that way back in 2009, there was a rumor floating around that Cryptic Studios might be handling a Neverwinter Nights MMO. You may also remember that there was a cooperative RPG Neverwinter coming from Cryptic Studios around the same time. Well, today we've found out that both of these ideas have merged together to form the upcoming free-to-play MMORPG Neverwinter

According to IGN, the game will not play like the Neverwinter Nights games but instead be more action oriented while still maintaining its Dungeons and Dragons roots. While the focus on action is definitely an interesting choice, I'm remaining cautiously optimistic on this one because I have a special attachment to the Neverwinter Nights series. As long as the game doesn't get too "Korean MMO," I think it could be a good distraction for a while.

You can watch the new story trailer over on IGN and keep up with news about the game on the official site. Neverwinter is scheduled to release in late 2012.
