NWN 2 - On The Horizon!
It's so close, I can taste it!
The long awaited release of Neverwinter Nights 2 is drawing near... Despite the fact that it was supposed to be released Sept. 19th, 2006 - the release date, according to the 'online stores' is set to October 31st, 2006. This project has been pushed back several times, but initial previews of the game look GREAT!
I was a huge fan of NWN 1 - and all of its modules. I've finished them all, and since then, I've been pretty much empty! Oh sure, I've gotten my kicks with Guild Wars and Oblivion, but game-play in NWN is amazing, and captivating. I really hope that the developers and producers of this game managed to maintain the excellence in story-telling that made NWN1 so popular.
Neverwinter Nights 2 continues the tradition with an even deeper and more engrossing storyline, tremendously immersive character development, stunning graphics, and, an expansive multiplayer experience. The player's journey not only expands their personal power, but also their political power, as he rises through the ranks of Neverwinter society and can even becomes a lesser noble of Neverwinter Cities are alive in the game, teeming with the life of children play through the street, farmers lead their animals around, and passersby walk on their mysterious business. In addition, frequented locations change rather dramatically between chapters. Past the campaign included with the game itself, Neverwinter Nights 2 also gives you all the tools you need to build your own modules, campaigns, and adventures.
If it's all they promise it to be, I'm dying to get my hands on it! I just hope they don't push the date back again.
