If this is really going to be "Baldurs Gate 3" then suddenly not taking much holiday this year (hopefully i can carry it over) is actually seeming a good idea. Clearly this will take over my life much as BG2 did.
"For the Doomguard!"
Sweet mother of god! Now this is a surprise, a welcome one!
They didn't really code name their mod tools Forge, did they?
Very surprised, PC exclusive, PC is dying, OH SNAP. Witcher 2, this, Star Craft 2, diablo III, Pc is not as bad off as people want you to believe.
Oh Cryptic eh, brilliant.
They can give up on the pretty 'meh' Star Trek: Online and make an average Fantasy MMO instead.
How is it an average MMO? Its not even an MMO, did you read? You play it yet? Love how people judge something without having a clue.
I wonder how long it will be until Activision send their lawyers in for infringing on copyright. Even if Atari had the license I wouldn't be surprised if they gave it a go. Maybe they'll send their security guards to the dev's studio and tell them they're all fired.
Seriously though, this sounds like it could be interesting. I imagine that the best part of the game will be whatever its modding community make, however.
Ooh, now this is good news!
I love the Neverwinter series, and if this is anything like the others it will be great.
why? Neverwinter Nights was published by Infograms/Atari anyway wasn't it?
Do want. NWN was pure crack.
if this is even anything like the first two, it will be a good game. That will absorb MANY MANY hours of my life.
They wouldn't have a leg to stand on. The city of Neverwinter existed in Forgotten Realms lore long before Bioware's 'Neverwinter Nights' was even conceived, nevermind released.
I'd go as far as to say this new game has absolutely nothing to do with Neverwinter Nights or Bioware aside from sharing the Forgotten Realms setting (along with countless other D&D franchises that do the same) and being an RPG.
I don't mean to dampen anyone's spirits, but the quality or fun of NWN has little to no bearing on this one beyond being from the same general genre.
Different developer, different publisher, different game, different take on the same setting.
News of a PC-exclusive D&D RPG is generally good news to my ears. I'll be eager to see how this turns out.
They have a lot to live up to..
Very nice, though I got fed up with Salvatore years ago.
"Neverwinter, an online co-op role-playing game"
Granted it may not be massively but it is multiplayer and on-line. Also I've had the dubious joy of playing Cryptics previous titles and they never seem to be able to focus long enough to finish anything.
Not sure how I feel about this.
On the one hand, Neverwinter Night YAY.
On the other, Cryptic GROAN.
I'm praying they prove me wrong though and its a pure crackfest ala 1, 2 & all the other great DnD RPGS of old.
How has the word 'Night' crept into this conversation?
This new game has nothing to do with the classic Neverwinter Nights. Absolutely nothing.
Cryptic are doing the trick of acquiring an intellectual property that cannot fail to attract interest (such as Star Trek) and cobbling together something to use it. It's dishonest and cheap in my opinion.
Whether the game will be any good or not we won't know til it comes out, but I'm a little peeved that Crptic would attempt this kind of two bit chicanery so soon after Star Trek Online. Have they no shame?
It's still based in Faerun, so not quite nothing.
With a Single player story where you can play alone with 4 NPC party members. So no, its not a mmo at all.
