Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition Release March 27
Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition Release March 27. Beamdog has announced that Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition Steam, Official Site will officially release on March 27th and it’s coming with day-1 Linux support.
The developer—which is made up of former Bioware employees and handled the Enhanced Editions of Baldur’s Gate 2, Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment—revealed the release date in a livestream yesterday, where it also talked about how it will update the game going forward.
Players that have pre-purchased the game have been able to play early versions, and those same players will get first access to patches after launch. Individual patches will then be rolled into larger updates that everyone will receive. The team is “investigating” ways to add new content to the original game’s campaign but it hasn’t yet found a way to do it.
The Enhanced Edition will support resolutions up to 4K, offer more graphics options, and include many fan-requested tweaks to the original game. It comes with the base game, its two expansion packs and three “premium modules”, which are basically story add-ons. Any future new content will come in the form of those modules, Beamdog said, and the game will be compatible with existing user-made modules.
Here’s what’s going to be updated:
- Improved Display: Your portrait, combat bar, inventory, and other UI elements adjust in size based on your chosen resolution including 1080p and 4k.
- Advanced Graphics Options: Pixel shaders and post-processing effects make for crisper, cleaner visuals. Enable contrast, vibrance, and depth of field options as preferred.
- Community Endorsed: Original developers have teamed with key members of the Neverwinter Nights community to curate important fan-requested improvements to support players, storytellers, and modders.
- Backwards Compatibility: Works with save games, modules, and mods from the original Neverwinter Nights. A galaxy of community created content awaits.
It also includes all content from Neverwinter Nights Diamond Edition.
