Neverwinter entering open beta April 30

Neverwinter has been in development for quite a while, and the free-to-play MMO is finally getting ready to repay fans for their patience. Perfect World and Cryptic Studios announced today that the game will enter open beta on April 30.

The companies promise no character wipes or restricted access after the open beta begins. Founders Packs are still available, ranging from $19.99 to $199.99. Those will grant you access to the remaining beta weekends, and some items and perks. The announcement also noted that Founders will get an extended 60-hour beta weekend starting April 12, and a chance to test the new professions system. It features four different professions: leadership, mailsmithing, platesmithing, and leatherworking.
