As previously reported, Neverwinter‘s Open Beta begins on April 30th and that’s open to everyone (hence the name, Open Beta.) However, there are opportunities to get into the game even earlier, if you just absolutely have to play before it’s the cool thing to do. All you have to do is be a Founder! Here are the details on the tier breakdowns and access dates:
- Hero of the North, play starting April 25, 2013 at 9 A.M. PDT
- Guardian of Neverwinter, play starting April 27, 2013 at 9 A.M. PDT (Pacific)
- Non-Founders play starting April 30, 2013 at 9 A.M. PDT
You can preload the game starting today by heading over to the download page, or opening up the client and patching if you already played in Closed Beta. It’s worth mentioning that there will not be a character wipe after Open Beta, so all of the progress you earn will carry over – start working towards that newly raised level 60 cap! If you’re new to the game, check out the registration page here and the download page here.
