Neverwinter's First Beta Weekend Details

The folks at Cryptic have sent us a press release containing the details for the first beta weekend for the title, which is apparently supposed to include content until level 30 and even some Foundry (the game's adventure toolkit) content that has been created by "players that have been working on them for months".

All the details:
Here's just a taste of what you and select beta testers will have the chance to see starting this Friday:

Three of Five Signature D&D Classes Before Neverwinter's Release
o Trickster Rogue - Master of stealth and misdirection, and maneuvers across the battlefield and strikes from the shadows with paired daggers.
o Devoted Cleric - Devout healer, committed to preventing injury, restoring health, and a faith in the divine.
o Guardian Fighter - Courageous and stalwart, superior at defensive maneuvers, and no stranger to hand-to-hand combat.

Content up to Level 30
Experience a variety of zones, dungeon delves, and large-scale group events as you adventure through the city of Neverwinter and its surrounding areas in the realm of Faerun, including the Protector's Enclave, Blacklake District, Tower District, Blackdagger Ruins, and the Neverdeath graveyard.

Companions and Mounts
During your journey, don't forget to pick up your first companion quest at level 16 so you never have to fight alone - and be sure to take on your first mount quest at level 20 so you can ride through town in style.

Play Foundry Content
The Foundry, a powerful and easy-to-use adventure creation tool allowing users to create, share, and play user-generated content from the Neverwinter community. For the purpose of Beta Weekend 1, players will have access to dozens of adventures brought to you by players that have been working on them for months. Visit a Well-informed Bar Maid, like the one in the Driftwood Tavern, or check out one of the many Job Boards scattered throughout the city of Neverwinter . Your chance to create your own adventures using Neverwinter's Foundry will be available in subsequent Beta Weekends.
