Neverwinter Nights Preview
8:31 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A quick new look at Neverwinter Nights has been posted at GameLoft. If you're unfamiliar with this upcoming 3D RPG from Bioware, have a read through the preview to get some basics on its gameplay, included magic spells, and multiplayer aspects. Bioware promises to include support for Mac, Windows, Linux, and even BeOS in the game. Here's an excerpt:

More than 200 spells will be available to magic users, while new skills, weapons and features will be the icing on the cake for fighters. Neverwinter Nights single player campaign will contain some 60-100 hours of action and adventure, but where the game is set to shine will surely be its multiplayability. While Neverwinter Nights' was originally slated as an MMORPG game, developers are at this stage focusing their attentions on creating a
world of 64 player dungeons which can be linked to one another via 'portals'. Players will be able to adventure through a number of different dungeons, solving the dungeon masters' quests, as well as interacting with each other.
While the preview lists the game's release as Q4 of this year, Bioware has yet to actually give a firm release date. Reports indicate that while they have completed most of the game's engine, there is still much of the content to generate and then extensive testing to be done. We certianly hope to see Neverwinter Nights before the end of the year, though, and we will keep you posted on any new info.
