For one of Massively Overpowered’s “Perfect Ten” colums this month, Justin Olivetti ranked the ten healthiest live MMOs and Neverwinter made the list! Here’s what the author had to say:
In a way, the tenth pick for this list was the hardest of all, because it had to justify being there versus all of the others I had to knock off. However, I feel fine with giving Neverwinter a nod of MMO health approval for several reasons. It’s not just that it’s reportedly doing gangbusters on the Xbox One (although that helps) but that it keeps throwing in giant updates without charging for the new content or classes. That’s kept the players rolling in and willing to spend money elsewhere (companions, lockboxes, mounts). Other plusses in its favor are its casual-friendly approach and the always-trendy Forgotten Realms D&D setting. Yeah, I’d say that Neverwinter is a good place to be indeed.
Make sure to add your opinion as well. Do you feel Neverwinter is on a good way to establish itself on the market or won’t make a comparable list next year? Let us know!
