Go read the FAQ if you're interested, I have a turkey to prepare.

It's nice to finally get an x86 client (I know Owen actually had it working at one point, but they were never able to release it). The switch to modern shaders also means we get shiny water now.

Presumably the toolset will continue to work this way, or via your favourite VM.
(Old timers may remember the heroic efforts of the NeverEdit guy...what (futile) hope he gave us back in the PPC days.)

But the client seems to have feature parity (in terms of the new shader support), at least as far as they've said. So any new mods and stuff should work just as well on Mac.

Of course, the real draw is the persistent world stuff and the user-created content. I'm hoping that gets a healthy shot-in-the-arm with the EE release.

Thanks to Deekin!

HotU really was special, though.

I still hope they can manage to locate the source code for Icewind Dale 2 but that isn't looking too good.

10.9 or later is required according to the release notes. Congratulations!
Incidentally, the NWN:EE beta/early access is available via the 'head start' program. Details here.

Completely MIA from what I understand. That said, GoG sell a wrapped version of IWD2 for the Mac that works without issue. It's not an EE, but hey.

Yeah, I own the GOG version. I wonder if they ever got around to wrapping it up for Linux. I'm sure I can do that myself though if need be. Since I am well behind in the games I want to play, I'm content to wait and hope on this one but if it never happens I'll get to it one way or another assuming I live long enough.
Just checked. I don't think GOG's in any hurry to do it up for Linux. If I do, maybe I'll send it to them. Maybe... you know what they say about the best laid plans.
