A little preview of NWN:EE on mobile. “Plays pretty well!” ~ Trent

  • Patch 8183 for the Development branch of Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is out on Steam and the Beamdog Client.

Any testing, feedback, and criticism you provide is invaluable.
  • The Ravenloft - Prisoners of the Mist server for Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is kicking off a “Halloween Play A New Character” event. It’s a great time to get started on that server! Check out the details here.
  • The Arelith server for Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is continuing their project to put all-new art on their loading screens. A very cool touch on a very cool server.
“NWN:EE on Android might be coming out some time this year!” ~ Sarah
  • The 2.6 patch for Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, and Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition is reaching closer. It will be released alongside the Dice, Camera, Action! voice and portrait pack, and include multiple spell and rules fixes, as well as the ability to see DLC portraits in multiplayer.
  • Vote on your favourite features for Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition on our Input Trello board! Have a new suggestion not on the Trello? Share it on our forums!
  • We are planning to start looking at the backlog of requests for Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition after the big features have been shipped: NWSync, 64 bit, and the Android version of NWN:EE.
  • Before we can make a solid evaluation of audio improvements for Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition, we need to work around a few OpenAL limitations.
