NWN Chat Reveals Mac Details
6:00 AM | Charles George | Comment on this story
Last night, developer BioWare and a group of Neverwinter Nights fans took some time to chat about this upcoming Advanced Dungeons and Dragon- based online RPG. The chat provided a great deal of information about the game itself, and some reassurance for Mac gamers looking forward to this title. While they would not commit to a Mac public Beta (one is planned for the PC) they did confirm that the Mac and PC versions are in lockstep, and a simultaneous release is expected. Here is an excerpt from the chat transcript:
Xander: How close is the Macintosh version keeping up with the code at this point, and are you expecting to provide a public beta for Mac at the same time as the Windows beta?When the chat ended, fansite Planet Neverwinter posted a complete and very clean transcript. If this is the first you've heard of this innovative online RPG, be sure and read our First Look at this title and our interview with Trent Oster of BioWare.

Don_Bioware: Howard is keeping the code up to date on a weekly basis. No plans yet for beta.
Rob_Bartel2: The Mac port is coming along nicely, as are the BeOs and Linux versions. We're aiming for a simultaneous, single-box release. Can't promise a beta of any sort at this point, though.
