Digital gaming veteran Atari brought back 20-sided dice with the open-beta release of Facebook game Dungeons and Dragons: Heroes of Neverwinter.
Heroes of Neverwinter doesn’t stray far from the formula — as Atari summed it up in a press release, “Players explore, kill monsters, and gather treasure.”
However, the game accounts for the short attention spans of the Facebook generation by providing what it calls “bite-sized play sessions,” as well as offering extensive player customization, and the ability to recruit others via the social network.
Atari’s description of the game says:
Legions of Halflings, Dragonborn, and Eladrin will sharpen their blades and ready their spells as Facebook players around the world create their unique heroes and set forth for adventure! Explore over 50 dungeons, battle over 40 unique monsters, learn over 30 unique skills, and discover hundreds of powerful magic items. Gamers can even take on the role of Dungeon Master and create their own adventures for friends and other players to explore. Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes of Neverwinter will be the deepest RPG experience ever to reach the Facebook platform.
