The Third Neverwinter Beta Weekend is Now Live - Grab Your Key from Curse!

In addition to making their presence known at PAX East this year, Perfect World Entertainment has kicked off the third beta weekend for highly anticipated D&D free-to-play MMORPG Neverwinter

"The response from the Neverwinter community and members of the press who participated in our previous Beta Weekends has been amazing so far," said Lead Producer Andy Velasquez. "On behalf of the entire development team at Cryptic Studios, I'd like to thank all Beta Weekend players for their feedback and support in making Neverwinter the best free MMORPG around!"

Players this week will be able to experience a wealth of new content, including the first opportunity to check out Neverwinter's PvP system and the chance to explore the Pirates' Skyhold and Icespire Peak Adventure Zones. In addition, players may take control of the new Great Weapon Fighter class. An increased level cap of 50, extends your play even further, so don't miss out!

We had a chance to test out several new features this week, and are now completely engrossed in the unique and satisfying combat system, the creative and captivating Foundry, and the ease of grouping up for both PvP and dungeons. Before you get started, though, here are a few tips on getting yourself set up:
