BioWare has announced that it will be conducting a limited open beta test for its upcoming RPG, Neverwinter Nights. This is the first open beta that the company has ever offered to the public. BioWare hopes to give select fans the opportunity to test technical, gameplay and balance issues in the game. Those interested can sign up at the company's Betatests.net web site.
Neverwinter Nights, developed by the makers of the Baldur's Gate series, has been in production for years. The game takes advantage of the third edition Dungeons and Dragons rule book and allows gamers to play in a single-player mode and online with other players. The game is expected to be released this summer in North America for the PC.
