Neverwinter delayed into early 2013

It's no surprise to learn that Neverwinter has been delayed again, considering we've heard little from it since it was last delayed. City of Heroes developer Cryptic's free-to-play Forgotten Realms MMORPG is now slated to launch in "early 2013," publisher Perfect World announced at Gamescom.

The delay gives Cryptic "even more time to add additional content and extra features that the developer team would love to have at launch," Perfect World said in the announcement. "Such content includes a robust PvP system." That's perfectly reasonable, then.

Here's a new trailer for Gamescom, going on about the undead and some sort of fantasy guff:
