Floodgate Shadows Neverwinter

First of two expansions announced

BioWare is combining its efforts with those of Floodgate Entertainment (a developer comprised mostly of former Looking Glass employees) to produce an official expansion to just-plain-massive RPG Neverwinter Nights. Shadows of Undrentide is due out in spring 2003, and offers "all-new content" for the lone player as well as "the tools to push their own creations to the next level" with the NWN Aurora Toolset.

Shadows of Undrentide continues BioWare's trend of promising a certain amount of game-time, claiming to pack in 40 hours of single player adventuring, integrating additional D&D skills, feats, classes, monsters, weapons and spells.

A second expansion is due out in summer 2003, with development exclusively by BioWare this time.

Of course, exciting though news of Shadows of Undrentide's development undoubtedly is, we're more interested in the latest unofficial NWN module from former Eurogamer editor John Bye, The Lord of Blight: Chapter One. Available (almost exclusively) via the Eurogamer forums, Lord of Blight is described as a non-linear, single player module with plenty of plot and dialogue, and at 800KB in size it's hard to say no. It is but a work in progress though, with more promised in the wake of the soon-to-be-released v1.27 patch.
