Neverwinter Nights 2 expansion

Atari has announced Storm of Zehir, a second expansion for D&D beast Neverwinter Nights 2.

The 15-hour campaign, due for release in Q4 this year, promises a massive inventory of improvements and focuses on a quest-line directly after the original’s conclusion.

Probably the key change is the ability to explore a “vast” overland map, which basically translates to being able to move around the faithful old Sword Coast and new “xenophobic jungle nation” Samarach in a non-linear fashion, using skills such as ‘Spot’ and ‘Survival’ to pre-empt ambushes and discover hidden treasures and locales.

Storm of Zehir will also revert to a party model similar those seen in Icewind Dale and Baldur’s Gate, allowing full-party customisation rather than sticking you with the pre-rolled troupe of adventurers that populated NWN2.
