Going Fourth: Neverwinter Announced

Confirming rumours from a previous point in our temporal existence, Cryptic are "do"ing a new Neverwinter game. Specifically, called "Neverwinter". From the details in its press release and about page, it's a persistent world Neverwinter Nights (Including content creation tools) based around co-operative groups of five (with the computer controlling the NPCs if you haven't got the right number) plus fourth edition D&D rules (which is a definite plus for Co-op groups, I suspect) and all the character customisation that Cryptic excel at (though you are kind wonder how much variety can you get out of dudes wearing leather). Interestingly, it's also a "multi-platform event". Except it doesn't mean consoles. It means a trilogy of novels and a tabletop roleplaying game. Man, I hope we don't have to dumb the game down for those readers. It's planned before the end of next year and I find myself tentatively excited. Yay? Yes, yay.
