The Sword Coast is a hotbed of adventure and activity these days. First there was the whole Baalspawn saga revisited with Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition–and now it’s time for another classic D&D CRPG to get Enhanced. Come join everyone’s favorite NPC follower: Tomi Undergallows as we return to Neverwinter Nights.
That’s right, the only D&D computer game that sounds like it should be a prime-time action-packed cop show returns with an Enhanced edition this week. Courtesy of Beamdog, we have a look at a return to Neverwinter Nights.
There is no way this isn’t a D&D beach cop show.
One of the biggest things about Neverwinter Nights was the modding community, and it sounds like Beamdog is really leaning on that community as well, gathering some of the more popular fan-made mods like Kingmaker or ShadowGuard to try and show off what’s possible with the fairly extensive aurora toolset.
The game is an update of the classic adventure–so the 3D graphics are…well they’re still very 2002, if that makes sense. So, lots of polygons–but if you can get past that, there’s a lot to play around with here.
