Neverwinter MMO open beta begins April 30

There be Dungeons & Dragons for all when Neverwinter enters open beta on April 30. From that point on the MMO's players need never fear more character wipes, developer Cryptic Studios announced, and it's free to play, so... This is basically launch, right?

Players can get in a few days early if they purchase one of several packs, including access to the final beta weekend from April 12 to 14. Either way, everyone will be able to try out Neverwinter's action-focused combat and player-created quests later this month.
