We stopped by Cryptic's booth at E3 to talk with them about Neverwinter's user-generated content.
Cryptic revealed Neverwinter at E3 this week, and we stopped by their booth to get some details on the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons MMO. The team mainly focused on The Foundry, which will allow you to build and share your own in-game adventures.
The Foundy basically lets you become the Dungeon Master of Neverwinter. It gives you the tools to builds NPCs, maps, dungeons, castles, and everything else you need to create your own epic adventures and share them with other players.
The Foundry is currently in development, so Cryptic gave us some general details regarding the system. Here are their main points:
- There will be a complete set of standalone content that Cryptic will create for the game.
- When the game launches, there will be a robust set of tools on The Foundry for players.
- They're trying to design it to be an easier version of the Aurora toolset while maintaining a high level of customization.
- They're still trying to work out exactly how much they want to allow users to be able to do with it.
From our time at Cryptic's booth, it honestly feels like they're trying to embrace the essence of Dungeons & Dragons in this MMO. We'll be keeping our eye on this game as more details are released. In case you missed them, be sure to check out the Neverwinter trailer and screenshots!
