'Neverwinter Nights' Limited Open Beta Test Announced

by Rainier on April 22, 2002 @ 8:25 p.m. PDT

Neverwinter Nights redefines the electronic role-playing game genre using the fully 3-D BioWare Aurora Engine and the Third Edition of the Dungeons & Dragons core rulebook. The game contains a 60- to 100-hour single-player campaign that is also playable in multiplayer mode.
"Neverwinter Nights will appeal to all types of gamers. This limited beta test will allow selected gamers, of every type and interest, an opportunity to find out why Neverwinter Nights is a ‘must own’ addition to every gamer’s collection," said Greg Zeschuk, Joint CEO and Co-Executive Producer of Neverwinter Nights. "We’ve never conducted an open beta test before," added 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," he concluded.

To enter the Beta test program, prospective testers must visit here, click on "Register Now" and complete the sign-up form. BioWare and Infogrames staff will select beta testers every week in a rolling acceptance process. The initial wave of Beta discs will be sent to the lucky first testers in early May.
