Neverwinter Online game
Is an MMORPG developed by Cryptic Studios using the same engine as their previous title, and published by Perfect World Entertainment. The game is set in the eponymous city of Neverwinter in the Forgotten Realms universe. Considered by Atari to be the continuation of the series, it is the first game in the series to be based on the 4th Edition ruleset. (The first and second NWN games used the 3 and 3.5 editions, respectively.)According to Cryptic COO Jack Emmert, Neverwinter is less of a traditional MMO and more of a story-driven game, "closer to things like or ". He was right.See also and, the single-player games to which NW is a sequel, and by RA Salvatore, part of series and set in the same time period.The game was released on Xbox One on March 31st 2015, and will be released on PS4 in September 2015.
Neverwinter provides examples of:
- Teleport Spam: Many of the Trickster Rogue's powers have this effect, with the Rogue jumping rapidly between targets or blinking in and out between attacks and leaving afterimages behind. Heck, the Rogue in the intro cinematic even does it (and eats an Offhand Backhand for her trouble at one point).
- Wake-Up Call Boss: Chartilifax of the Lair of the Mad Dragon dungeon. The previous dungeons can easily be done through brute force, whereas Chartilifax reminds the players why teamwork and strategy are necessary.
