Neverwinter Nights Is Getting An Enhanced Edition


Beamdog is working on an enhanced edition of Neverwinter Nights, the 2002 PC RPG from Bioware that famously let players create their own D&D servers, adventure modules and campaigns. 

It's a fitting announcement not just because Beamdog made its name remastering classic PC RPGs like Baldur's Gate and Planescape: Torment but because Beamdog founder Trent Oster served as director and producer of Neverwinter Nights.

Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is already up for pre-order for about 20 bucks and will add 4K support, pixel shaders and modern graphics post-processing effects to the game. But the real clincher is that it is intended to be compatible with all the content and mods created for the original release. 

The passionate and yes, still active community of Neverwinter Nights will be involved in suggesting their own updates and improvements. That's great news since bespoke projects by devoted users have been an essential component of that game's legacy.
