Hold on to your hats, kids, because we've got some new Neverwinter screens to check out!
That's right, Neverwinter screens! In case you haven't been paying attention, Neverwinter is a free-to-play MMO in the works over at Perfect World, which acquired the property from Atari back in late 2011. The new screens show off some of the dangers that will be faced in in the Blackdagger Ruins and Vellosk zones.
I can't say I'm really getting a D&D "vibe" from these screens, especially the one with the guy in a silly pirate hat who looks like a Scooby Doo villain, but my love of the game is admittedly rooted in a different era, when we clattered through a cave dug into a hill somewhere, snuffed a few kobolds and a maybe a bugbear, and called it a day. But even if it turns out to be just another generic Warcraft wanna-be, it's free-to-play so there's no risk, aside from some lost time, in giving it a rip.
And with that ringing endorsement done, I'll leave you with this: Neverwinter is slated to come out early this year, and you can find out more about the game (and decide for yourself whether I'm being insightful or cranky) at nw.perfectworld.com.
