Earlier this week, Kotaku was approached by a marketing firm working for the publisher Perfect World. They wanted us to help sell two of their games. And in the process, they inadvertently gave us a behind-the-scenes peek at what it looks like when YouTubers shill for game companies.
Wizards of the Coast is calling the next big global Dungeons & Dragons storyline “Rage of Demons,” but the theme running through D&D tabletop, board and video games later this year is a dark elf wielding a pair of scimitars and his pet panther.
The North American Xbox One got its first MMORPG today, in the form of a two-year-old free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons PC game. Check out character creation and the opening tutorial for Neverwinter.
Whenever I think of BioWare's Baldur's Gate series, one line of dialogue springs immediately to mind: "Go for the eyes, Boo!" We might soon hear those words again, as Minsc and Boo will play a big role in Neverwinter's Elemental Evil expansion when it launches for PC March 17.
Considered by many to be the greatest D&D adventure of all-time, "The Temple of Elemental Evil" gets a major nod this March when the latest storyline, simply titled "Elemental Evil", hits the MMO Neverwinter, the tabletop game and beyond.
It's been years since I've walked the streets of Neverwinter, rapier swinging with every step, ready for whatever dangers lurked in the alleys of one of Dungeons and Dragons' most notable locales. It's also been awhile since I filled out a good old paper character sheet. Why not combine the two?—>
Perfect World Entertainment is prepared to open a portal to the Forgotten Realms next month with the first of three beta weekend events for its upcoming Dungeons & Dragons MMORPG, Neverwinter, and there's one sure way to get in—spending $49.99 or $199.99 on a Neverwinter Founder's Pack.
Every time the terms "Dungeons & Dragons" and "story" appear together and I don't find myself in a 10x10 room with four other people, checking for traps, I'm just the tiniest bit disappointed.
I sat down in Perfect World's E3 demo room on Tuesday unsure what I should expect from Neverwinter. I remember trying Dungeons and Dragons Online back in 2006 when it was new, and I've poked ineffectually at Neverwinter Nights a few times in my life, but neither ever captivated me. I respected those games' goals, but…
It's no Neverwinter Nights, but the upcoming Neverwinter online game is still Dungeons & Dragons and it's still Neverwinter. So a first decent look at the game's engine since E3 (albeit via a rather cinematic trailer) is still in order.
Hoping to capture the attention of both traditional pen-and-paper role-players and video game RPG fans, Wizards of the Coast wants to put the city of Neverwinter on the minds of fantasy fans everywhere. That's why they've called in the big guns: author R.A. Salvatore and his most famous creation, Drizzt Do'Urden.
The Forgotten Realms depicted in this new trailer and screenshots for Cryptic Studios' online co-op role-playing game Neverwinter could have been torn from the scribble pad I kept next to my character sheet back in my Dungeons & Dragons days.
Atari and Cryptic Studios return to the Forgotten Realms Dungeons & Dragons setting next year with Neverwinter, an online co-op role-playing game based on an upcoming series of novels from R.A. Salvatore.
