The last entirely new entry in the Neverwinter series was four years ago. But if things go according to plan, we will have an all new title in the series by quarter four 2011. Cryptic Studios, developers behind the City of Heroes and Star Trek Online MMOs, will be taking the development helm.
Few details have been released, but we do know that the game will allow for five player co-op, and that there will be five different Dungeons and Dragon classes to choose from. If five players seems like a lot of effort to recruit, a computer AI will take over any empty spots left in the party.
As for the plot, Neverwinter is in Chaos as the dead have started marching upon the city. Oh, no!
Stay tuned for more details in the future.
