BioWare and Infogrames have announced the upcoming limited beta test of Neverwinter Nights, their upcoming Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. The companies are now accepting applications for the beta test, and they will select new testers every week in a rolling acceptance process. The first group of beta test discs will be sent out in early May. To sign up for the beta test, visit Betatests.net and complete the registration process.
"We've never conducted an open beta test before," said Ray Muzyka, BioWare's joint CEO and co-executive producer of Neverwinter Nights. "We'll be testing module designs, connectivity, and other technical aspects of the game, as well as offering the growing Neverwinter Nights community a snapshot of what we've been working on at BioWare these last five years."
Neverwinter Nights is set in TSR's Forgotten Realms--the most popular medieval fantasy setting in the Dungeons & Dragons universe. The game will feature an innovative dungeon master system that will let players create and run their own adventures for up to 64 players per server, as well as a complete single-player campaign. Neverwinter Nights will be available in stores this summer. For more information, take a look at our in-depth previews of the game.
