Fans of Neverwinter Nights were ecstatic to learn that the much awaited sequel is being released very soon. Developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Atari, Neverwinter Nights 2 is due to be released in September 19 of this year. For sure, gamers of all ages are eagerly waiting on the edge of their seats for this day.
What are we supposed to expect from this sequel? When Obsidian president, Feargus Urquhart, was interviewed by Gamespot regarding the game, he was (quite understandably) reluctant to reveal any details. However, he was quick to emphasize that they didn’t want to stray far from the original game. He stressed that the elements gamers loved in the previous game wouldn’t be left out and instead they built upon those elements and added to them. Neverwinter Nights 2 uses a different graphics engine from the Neverwinter Nights, making modules from the previous version incompatible with the newer version, though.
Even as details are handed out in bits and pieces, Neverwinter Nights 2 looks to be a very promising game indeed. The graphics are more finely tuned and the player has more options when it comes to creating his character. There is also a new camera which has a zoom in function so that the action is even more lifelike. With the host of new characters, creatures, and battle options, you will really get a kick out of this new feature.
It is a common fear that sequels would not be able to live up to the huge success of the original game. With Neverwinter Nights 2, however, it seems that this fear might be ungrounded. Anyhow, we will all see come September.
