Neverwinter Nights Opening Movie Available
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Gamers looking for every shred of information they can get on BioWare's upcoming role-playing game will be happy to know that gaming site giant GameSpot recently posted the entire opening movie from Neverwinter Nights. The movie is available as a download for registered users and in streaming format for those who wish to view it without having to pay.

Though the movie itself doesn't actually reveal anything about gameplay or features, it does show a nicely rendered fight scene between a sword-wielding warrior and a giant minotaur, interspersed with images of a sword being forged. The entire opening screams D&D and is sure to get the heart of many a fan pumping.

In related news, fan site Ladies of Neverwinter recently posted an interview with Sophia Smith, a coder on Neverwinter Nights. The interview takes a look at the game from the female perspective:

Q: What can you tell us about the variety of models for female characters? Are they all going to be grossly scantily clad females in Xena-like armor, or can we hope for more D&D flavored appearances?

A: I just browsed through the clothes available for female characters.  There is a large selection of clothing components that can be mixed-and-matched, and although some options are more revealing than others, these are in the minority. There are many choices, and having toyed with them briefly, I'm confident that attractive clothes can easily be created to satisfy a wide range of levels of both modesty and functionality. There's a good range of character portraits to choose from, encompassing different ages, races, and body types.

Those interested in the full interview can find it at the Ladies of Neverwinter.
