While Cryptic Studios’ upcoming free-to-play MMORPG Neverwinter is set for release this coming July 19, antsy players can get their sword and sorcery on a week early if they’re willing to pony up $20 for an Onyx Head Start pack.

In a press release, Neverwinter publisher Perfect World Entertainment announced that the game will be available today for those who purchase the Onyx Head Start pack. Check out the contents of the pack below, as well as the official press release details.

The Onyx Head Start pack will include the following items and is available today for $19.99:

  • Fragile Onyx Weapon Pack
  • Onyx Keyring with 20 enchanted keys
  • Adventurer’s Helper Pack
  • Graycloak’s Legacy weapon
  • Onyx Horse mount
  • “The Onyx Adorned” title

Transporting players into a fully realized roleplaying experience based on Wizards of the Coast’s storied franchise, Neverwinter PlayStation®4 will feature all existing content from the base game, including eight playable classes and nine expansions. This includes the game’s latest update, The Maze Engine, allowing players to experience the latest Dungeons & Dragons adventures with their friends. Neverwinter is available today through the Onyx Head Start pack, which can be purchased for $19.99 on the PlayStation®Store and features controls optimized to incorporate the DualShock 4’s touchpad, Party Chat integration and more.
