'Neverwinter Nights 2' Limited Edition Announced

Bards sing tales of heroes from ages past, but never have the Forgotten Realms so desperately needed a champion. Years have passed since the war between Luskan and Neverwinter, almost enough time for the wounds of war to heal. But the brief peace the Realms have known may be at an end. Tension growing between the mighty city-states means the Sword Coast again teeters on the edge of open war. Unnoticed, a greater danger stalks the City of Skilled Hands. Unbeknownst to the denizens of the North, deep in the Mere of Dead Men, dark forces from across the Realms have been rallied under the banner of a legendary evil. If left unchallenged, all of the North is doomed to fall under its power.

In development by Obsidian Entertainment, Neverwinter Nights 2 is set in the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Forgotten Realms universe, and will transport players back to the embattled city of Neverwinter. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS is under license from the Hasbro Properties Group, the intellectual property development arm of Hasbro. Neverwinter Nights 2 Limited Edition, which includes various collectible items that further transport gamers into the Forgotten Realms universe, is available for pre-order at participating retail stores nationwide.

Neverwinter Nights 2 Limited Edition includes :

  • A powerful new feat called Blessed of Waukeen will grant a bonus to all saving throws, two special items, access to a unique weapon, and a magical golden aura that surrounds players' characters.
  • Detailed cloth map showing in-game locations
  • Book of art, depicting characters and scenes from the game
  • Two silver antique rings: Good & Evil

"The Neverwinter Nights 2 Limited Edition offers consumers extremely rich and unique collectibles that will further enhance the Neverwinter Nights experience," said Stephen Baer, Senior Product Manager, Atari, Inc. "Atari is pleased to include these specially-crafted items, such as the exclusive book of art, in the limited edition."

The Neverwinter Nights franchise has sold more than two million copies worldwide, is translated into 10 languages, sold in more than 40 countries and features one of the largest and most active fan communities in all of gaming. To date, fans of the franchise, which includes Neverwinter Nights, Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of Undrentide(TM) and Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark(TM), have created nearly 4,000 modifications to the original game using the original, award-winning Aurora Toolset. A more robust toolset will be included with the release of Neverwinter Nights 2.

Neverwinter Nights 2 is scheduled for release in October 2006.
