    How the D&D Next Public Playtests Will Work

    Mike Mearls discusses this here. As always, this has been added to our comprehensive compiled D&D 5E Info page.

    As a reminder, the public playtests begin on May 24th. The playtest is not a store only thing, so you will be able to do it at home and/or with your usual gaming group. You will not need a DDI account to participate in the playtest.

    You get the basic core rules plus a limited set of classes and races: fighter, cleric, wizard, and rogue, along with the human, elf, dwarf, and halfling.
    • The characters will be pre-gens.
    • As feedback comes in, more material will be released.
      • Starting by levelling the pre-gens up through 10th level
      • Followed by character generation
    • Starts broad, then zeroes in on specific option
    So, in just under a month you'll get to actually see the core rules of the next edition of D&D. Exciting stuff!
