Perfect World Entertainment today announced that Neverwinter, a online role-playing game based on Wizards of the Coast's global property Dungeons & Dragons and the beloved city of Neverwinter, will be showcased at Gamescom, 15 – 19 August, 2012. In Neverwinter, players choose to become one of five classic D&D classes and team up with friends or computer-controlled allies to form five-person co-op groups. Players also create their own storylines and quests utilizing an extremely user-friendly content generation system, tentatively codenamed Forge.
Those who visit the Perfect World booth will get an exclusive first-look at unseen content with new features being revealed. Attendees can look forward to playing Storming the Keep, one of the game's many public events designed to offer players something new every day. Set in the Black Dagger Ruins zone, players will band together to reclaim a fortress that has fallen into the hands of an ill-intentioned group of bandits.
Neverwinter for PC is scheduled to release in Q4 2012 and is part of a multi-platform event, including a book trilogy from New York Times best-selling author R. A. Salvatore and a tabletop role-playing game from Wizards of the Coast.
