Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition gets a release date

DND.

Beamdog's Enhanced Edition of BioWare's quite-old-now role-playing game Neverwinter Nights will be released 27th March on Steam.

It's $20 but for that you get both NWN expansions - Shadows of Undrentide and Hordes of the Underdark - plus paid modules Kingmaker, ShadowGuard and Witch's Wake. If you splash out on the $40 Deluxe Edition you also get the paid modules Pirates of the Sword Coast, Wyvern Crown of Cormyr and the procedurally generated Infinite Dungeons, which scales up to character level 40.

NWN being enhanced means Beamdog has brought elements of the game up to date, including a UI which scales right up to 4K, and advanced graphics options to clean up and beautify the game. It's the same sort of treatment Beamdog has given Baldur's Gate 1 & 2, Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment in the past. The only original work Beamdog has done, so to speak, was to make Baldur's Gate expansion pack Siege of Dragonspear.

Buying the Enhanced Edition of Neverwinter Nights isn't the only way to play the game. The un-enhanced Neverwinter Nights can be bought with both expansions on GOG for Ł7.60.
