Developers are implementing a brand new action focused combat system that is more fast paced, skill oriented, and steers away from many traditional MMO's tab targeting systems. Players will have to block, dodge, aim, and counter-attack their enemies. This will allow the player much more freedom in combat as they go up against all the classic D&D monsters.
Not only will Neverwinter present the standard MMO main storyline and daily quests, but Developers are introducing a brand new tool, called the "The Foundry," an adventure creation tool that will allow players to create, share, and play an infinite amount of new quests and adventures.
Are you ready for Neverwiner? The Neverwinter Beta has previously only held closed beta event weekends, only accessible to "Neverwinter Founders" - players who purchased certain Neverwinter "Packs." Now the Beta is opened to all, and from the gameplay I've seen it looks pretty solid.
