More Neverwinter Nights Details
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

PC Game Central recently interviewed Greg Zeschuk, co-Executive Producer of BioWare's upcoming role-playing game Neverwinter Nights. The focus of much scrutiny from the game-playing community, Neverwinter Nights is expected to be one of the hottest RPGs released this year, particularly if the legions of Baldur's Gate fans have anything to say about it.

Though the interview covers much information that's already known, a few new details did manage to surface during the questioning. As far as game play goes, Zeschuk explains that the Neverwinter Nights campaign will focus largely on a player's single character rather than on a party. Players will be able to hire retainers and so forth, but the emphasis will be on that one character.

Of course, the main question rolling around for most gamers is the estimated release time for this title. As far as progress goes, Zeschuk notes:

The game is coming along very well — overall we're very happy with how it's going. The main thing we're working on now is making it fun — the real challenge in making roleplaying games is tuning them to be a fun experience rather than just a direct implementation of a rules system with some content tossed in for good measure.
Further into the interview, Zeschuk adds that BioWare is planning on a summer 2002 release.

For more information on Neverwinter Nights, including the possibility of a beta test for the multiplayer aspect, the full interview can be found at PC Game Central. Also be sure to stop by the BioWare web site, which recently posted two new screenshots of Neverwinter Nights in action.
