'Neverwinter Nights' Now Available on Console
For the first time ever, BioWare’s classic Dungeons & Dragons-based RPG Neverwinter Nights is available on consoles, ported by Edmonton’s Beamdog development studio and published by Skybound Games.
Not only does the port give gamers access to the classic RPG, it also provides 100+ hours of downloadable content, including expansions Shadows of Undrentide and Hordes of the Underdark. Not enough? How about 10 standalone D&D-based adventures with online multiplayer?
This is a game that I owned, but it was just too much for my computer at the time. Now that it’s totally redone for consoles, maybe it’s time to jump back in and create something?
Here’s the press release:
