Neverwinter founder early access begins today [Updated]

Shawn Schuster

If you're a diehard Neverwinter fan (i.e., you threw down $200 for the Hero of the North founder's pack), you're probably sitting at home in your PJs, notebook full of character names in hand, ready to hit the Neverwinter open beta running. Or you might be at work/school wishing you played sick this morning.

Either way, Cryptic Studios' and Perfect World Entertainment's D&D-based MMO Neverwinter is celebrating a soft launch this morning as the open beta early access period will begin at 12 p.m. EDT (9 a.m. PDT). For those who purchased the Guardian of Neverwinter founder's pack ($60 US), your early access begins at 12 p.m. EDT (9 a.m. PDT) on April 27.

Good luck to everyone and watch the open beta trailer after the jump below to get you pumped up!

[Update: We've altered this post to remove a bit about stressing over character name reservations since Neverwinter allows you to grab any character name you want under your global handle. Sorry for the confusion!]
