Well, it looks like this new game is really being made. For awhile, like the last two years, it was just rumor.

Well, that looks quite good I have to say! I was bothered by the fact that they put (again!) only D&D and no FR, but as we are already getting used to this unfortunate policy... The trailer itself looks nice.

The mention of "Cooperative online RPG" makes me think it might be closer to Guild Wars (i.e. sort of a party-based console RPG that happens to be online) rather than a true static world/grindfest MMORPG. With their "pricing yet to be determined" bit, I'm afeared it will be subscription model, much like the DDI or an MMO.

One usually has far more to fear from the soft-spoken wizard with a blade and well-worn boots than from the boisterous one in the ivory tower.

Guild Wars doesn't require any subsription fee, just the game purchace as does Diablo 1 & 2.

I don't believe this is going to be a full MMO. I remember reading somewhere, possible IGN, that the game will be playable with only one person. The emphasis will be on multiplayer though.

When I have been reading the articles on the game I was getting a hybrid Diablo/MMO style peeking through.

-The Diablos are relatively old, especially the first one. But, alright, it's good to see that there are still some popular online games that don't charge subscriptions. Me, I'm not really into online games. I played the Lord of the Rings for a few days like four years ago, when they were offering a free week/month around Christmas time, but was kinda boring being all alone (my cousins, who played it, were all high levels, whereas I was level 1, so I couldn't really play with them). I am looking forward to Knights of the Old Republic, though. I'm gonna give that one a try.

DDO doesn't require a subscrip any more either nor does Lord of the Rings. Plus even some of the Everquests have done away with it. They've turned some features into microcosts though but they are optional.

Actually, the majority of MMOs have moved away from the subscription model. I think WoW and SW:TOR will be the last of the breed. Most have moved to F2P with microtransactions.

Also:

"Easy-to-grasp adventure creation tools empower players. Bring compelling quests to life and build challenging levels! Share creations with the entire world in-game. Become a part of the existing Dungeons & Dragons universe... Then build a new one."

This looks like Neverwinter Nights 3 more than a full MMO.

Still rockin' the Fey'ri style.

But WoW has over a 60% market share, it totally dominates the MMO scene. I don't foresee Blizzard changing this any time soon, too much revenue is generated by WoW.

Actually, Blizzard just announced this week that it has partly free to play now. You can get up to level 20 as well as the use the races from Burning Crusade.

Well, looks like Perfect World Entertainment is turning this into another MMO type game now that they have bought out Cryptic.

Wow... with the Co-op play, I was sorta interested. Now that it's going to change into a F2P MMO with microcharges, I've totally lost interest.

Sad, really sad.

4E Realms was awful, but it's water under the Boareskyr Bridge. Let's make 5E Realms truly shine!

Has anyone tried the quick Neverwinter game featured on Facebook?? I was really skeptical at first but for a silly Facebook game, it's actually pretty fun. Espically with the ease and controls of the game, it's pretty entertaining.

I saw someone else comment on it, and the responses were that it gets boring after level 10. I don't know this for myself; I limit my time playing Facebook games.

I haven't gotten that far because I too limit my Facebook time, lol. Honestly though, I think it's a lot more fun than Farmville, Mafia-Wars, and.....Castle Age (I think that's the name).

Yea, not sure if I want to try another MMO with all the ones that are coming out this year or next. Ah well.

I have been, when I remember to get over there. I saw it when Brian was playing and he's on my friend list for the game but..... I dunno, it wasn't keeping my interest to much. I had to keep running the same dungeons over and over to get some exp and gold, otherwise I kept getting killed.

I've got quite a bit of hatred for that business model myself. I see why it is what it is, but it still sucks. Well, there that game goes as my plan B for when I start to get bored with swtor (once that @$%@##$@#$#@@$ thing finally comes out!).

Dont you think its too small if its just set in Neverwinter city? It'll probably become a Dragon Age 2 style disaster.

DDO does fine with one city. And the MMO will still have The Foundry. I, for one, am still excited.

Okay, I'm an idiot.

What is F2P?

I loved the Diablos, and am eagerly awaiting D3, which looks freaking awesome. I know all I am doing is clicking like mad, but its so addictive!

Haven't tried the FB Neverwinter game - I really should. Right now I am enjoying CastleAge on FB, but its getting boring (they all get that way after awhile). I thought their Vampire Wars was well thought-out, but they screwed it all up with the changes and I never played it again. I have to wonder, though, if that game inspired the Vampire as a PC race in 4e D&D - I had similar thoughts myself (converting the abilities in that game into 3e Feats).

I may try this Neverwinter game, or not - depends upon what I have going on.

Since when is DA2 a disaster? I love that game. As I see it, it's basically shaped like the first part of Baldur's Gate 2 (the majority is set in one limited locale, with side-trips for some important quests).

Free to play. It's a business model where you can play the game as-is, but if you want to add cool stuff like new races, items, areas, etc., you pay small charges for expanded content. WoW is close to this model, Diablo does it, etc.

Lord of the Rings Online does it, too, and I believe D&D Online went to that business model, before its demise.

DnD Online is going stronger than ever, with no sign of that changing. There was a new update with the artificer class, and a whole bunch of content a cfew months ago.d definately no demise, in fact it's got more players now than ever.
