Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition Announced

Beamdog has announced a new version of the classic CRPG Neverwinter Nights.

The new version is naturally called Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition, and it comes with all of the content from the game’s Diamond Edition release, as well as all-new enhanced features. Featured above, you can view the game’s announcement trailer. A release is tentatively “coming soon” across PC, Mac, and Linux.

The Enhanced version of the game includes things like advanced graphic shaders, 4k support, updated translations (French, German, Italian, Polish and Spanish) and the fan community’s most requested bug fixes, alongside familiarity of the Forgotten Realms.

It’s worth pointing out the game is getting a Digital Deluxe bundle, which includes: three of the original premium modules (Pirates of the Sword Coast, Infinite Dungeons, and Wyvern Crown of Cormyr), two soundtracks featuring all of the original music, and a new portrait pack. All of the DLC content will be available separately on Steam.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Beamdog:


Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition Combines all the content of Neverwinter Nights Diamond Edition with all-new enhanced features. Includes 100+ hours of award-winning adventures and the tools to create your own! Play alone, with a friend, or join up to 64 others online! Step into a fantastical world filled with magic, wonder, and adventure at every turn.

Key Features:
  • Improved Display: Your portrait, combat bar, inventory, and other UI elements adjust in size based on your chosen resolution including 1080p and 4k.
  • Advanced Graphics Options: Pixel shaders and post-processing effects make for crisper, cleaner visuals. Enable contrast, vibrance, and depth of field options as preferred.
  • Community Endorsed: Original developers have teamed with key members of the Neverwinter Nights community to curate important fan-requested improvements to support players, storytellers, and modders.
  • Backwards Compatibility: Works with save games, modules, and mods from the original Neverwinter Nights. A galaxy of community created content awaits.
