From what I hear this will be nothing like the 2006 Bioware World Builder Neverwinter Nights 1 (NWN1). Neverwinter Nights achieved fame because it was the first 'mmo' that allowed people with the time and inclination to start at square 1 and build a world from the ground up. And if you had a bit of scripting knowledge you could change every aspect of the world. Then host the world either under Windows or Linux as a public server. Another company tried to recreate the fame of NWN1 with Neverwinter 2 and it fell flat on its face.
From reports the only 'building' you will do in Cryptics Neverwinter ( 'NW 2012' ) is minimal. There will be no world building. Supposely you can make 'mods' but only from their on program (there will be no Community Expansion Packs). There will be no scripting, no hosting. You will have a 'door' you can go into to make your own private instance on thier server.
IMHO Bioware NWN1 did it right, if Cryptic/PW want to have a decent turnout for Neverwinter, they should make it a personal world builder with a modern day Aurora Toolset. Allow server hosting and full world scripting modification.
I should know what I'm talking about since I MADE a huge world in Neverwinter 1. Incorporating community addons for content and database functionality.
