Mounty: Neverwinter Allows You To Ride The Sport Cow

By Jim Rossignol on March 4th, 2013 at 3:00 pm.


We knew that Neverwinter allowed players to ride giant spiders – that much was obvious – but a new trailer has revealed that they can also ride horses! And there was me thinking those wildly roaming quadrupeds were just for eating.

John had a rather good time with Neverwinter when he played it recently, and the game is currently in beta wot you can sign up for.

    Riding horses? That’s neigh fun.

  7. stiffkittin says:

    Funny. The horses are animated better than the humanoids in this game.

      My thoughts exactly.

      Actually it is probably just that you are more familiar with bipedal motion, you know what people are supposed to look like. Unless you work with horses every day you would not pick up on the mistakes in the same way causing equally well (or badly) animated models to seem different.

      EDIT: Watched the vid again. No, the horses are just as bad as the people.

    Why do these Neverwinter videos have these terrible joke voice overs? They seem really out of place.

    I’ve improved the soundtrack: http://bit.ly/XOjuHi

    Love the segue into an advertisement for VIP packages, this game really has its priorities straight.

    This trailer is ridiculous. The girth strap should be under the horse’s armpits. UNDER ITS ARMPITS. Its as if they don’t even want my money. IT MAKES ME SICK. I’m going to pirate it just to um… like… show them… something. OK bye.

    Horses are ugly. it needed to be said.

      SHUT YOUR FACE.

      Ahem, what? Did someone say something?

    I will keep posting this video as long there are horses involved:

    If I see any drow on the surface I will send them racist hate messages and goddammit if they ban me from the game, it’s totally within the universe lore!

  14. The First Door says:

    So… I am going to be totally unable to call horses anything other than ‘Sport Cows’ now. I’m blaming you for the funny looks I’ll get, Jim!

  15. PostieDoc says:

    I don’t like spiders.

  16. Otter says:

    Oh good gravy, I just got the “sports cow” line… so very very bad. But now I wonder if they come with leather seats…

  17. RakeShark says:

    Did… did I just see a matte shot?

  18. Bart Stewart says:

    Wait — so giant spiders can also ride horses?

    That is a world that must exist.
