Neverwinter Nights: ‘Enhanced Edition’ Revealed!

Neverwinter Nights: ‘Enhanced Edition’ Revealed!

Comprised of ex-BioWare employees and known for bringing classic RPGs into the current generation, developer Beamdog has just announced an upcoming ‘Enhanced Edition‘ of the over 15 year old Neverwinter Nights  CRPG.

Neverwinter Nights – Enhance!

Originally launched in 2002, Neverwinter Nights  was developed by studio BioWare and was met with critical-acclaim. The game was praised for its campaign, gameplay and graphics at the time.

This remaster will feature improved visuals, UI scaling and support for old save data, mods and modules from the original release.

Beamdog has also shared that pre-order for the Enhanced Edition begins today  with its “Head Start” programme, which allows players to try out an early version of the game with a price tag of $19.99 USD.

Furthermore, the developer will be hosting a live-stream on Twitch later today at 12:00 PST, showcasing Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition.

More details on Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition  will be revealed later.

    But I dread ruining my memories by re-launching it. I’ll wait until they make some graphic retouchs. We all know its coming :P

    I played the original NWN1 for about 15 yrs consistently, including all the Official Content, around a hundred or so mods, a 5 yr on-line campaign, and a few Persistent Worlds. I know of a few Players that have excelled at creating, adapting, and making new content, and if this version can regenerate interest to my Fave Game of this new Century, I applaud them for it.

    FWIW – While NWN2 may have had some updated graphics, I much prefer the content of the first title.

    Honestly I never got into the story of any of the Neverwinter games. I played through all of them and forgot about them shortly afterward. The best thing they had going for them was a thriving community of people creating their own campaigns via Neverwinter’s toolkit (indeed there are still people making NWN2 modules to this day).

    Visually NWN hasn’t aged well (as other commenters noted). This is because it was the first "true 3d" D&D game. By comparison the "infinity engine" games like Icewind Dale, Baldur’s Gate and Planescape Torment, with their 2d background still look decent, and the "enhanced edition" of them supposedly looks even better with those backgrounds rendered at modern high resolutions.

    The NWN OC was rushed out the door due to pressure from that published (ie; Atari, if I recall correctly). This is why I guess they may wish to complete it as originally envisioned. SoU was OK; introduced Deekin the Kobold Bard which was the highlight for me, but Hotu remains top notch, and I still play occasionally.

    But agreed, the best thing about NWN1 is that the Toolkit and DM Client allow for player created content in modules and Persistent World’s, which are still active. And if I read correctly, this new title will be compatible with older materials which includes player enhanced content. Some may be able to find out more at the Neverwinter Vault; uncertain.
