Neverwinter: Unleashing the Blade Wielders

A new video spotlights two new melee roles in Perfect World's upcoming MMO


The focus on interesting, active combat is certianly prevalent in most new MMOs to be coming down the pipe in the next year or so.

And it's about time too.

Neverwinter is a strong example as demonstrated in the new video released by Cryptic and Perfect World. The importance of left and right mouse clicks and the dynamic nature of the activated abilities seem to point towards an engaging bout of hack and slash for players when the game is released.


My adoration of all things Dungeons and Dragons began 25 years ago -- good lord I'm old -- and Neverwinter is shaping up to be a fascinating addition to the stable of related properties. Alongside the robust looking combat is the vaunted player generated content that should add a lot of freshness and replayability to the game.


Check out the video below and let us know what you think. Does the combat of Neverwinter make you itch to go dungeon running?
