Neverwinter FAQ, E3 Media

This batch of screenshots and artwork show off Neverwinter, the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons RPG still in development at Cryptic Studios, in spite of Atari's recent sale of the developer to Perfect World. A new About Neverwinter document outlines what to expect from the game, accompanied by this FAQ, which answers some questions. We also have the E3 teaser trailer from the game, which shows off a lot of characters and environments, though not much in the way of actual gameplay. The FAQ leaves questions about pricing and system requirements unanswered, but does give some detail on support for player-developed content. Here's a bit on that:

Q: Will I be able to make my own adventures and play through them with my friends?
Yes! It wouldn’t be a true Neverwinter game without a content-creation tool! Players will be able to shape and add to the world of Neverwinter by creating and building their own adventures or full-fledged campaigns from the ground up using The Foundry for Neverwinter.

Q: What is The Foundry?
The Foundry for Neverwinter is your chance to craft the world of Neverwinter your way. A robust and powerful toolset, you can use The Foundry for Neverwinter to create and build new adventures and campaigns to share with your friends and the entire Neverwinter community. Learn more by visiting our Foundry informational page on the official website.

Q: Will I be able to play adventures created by other players?
Yes! Making player-authored content available to the community is an essential feature of Neverwinter and The Foundry makes it happen.

The Foundry has been awesome for STO and there's been some missions in it that have rivaled or exceeded most quests in typical MMOs. When you put the power of creation into the players hands you often get results that you would never see be greenlit due to time invested or other reasons. Of course there is lots of garbage too but STO has done a wonderful job of letting the community police itself and filter the bad out.
