Infogrames, Inc. and BioWare Corp., the creators of the four million selling Baldur’s Gate series, are pleased to announce that Neverwinter Night shipped to retail stores today under Infogrames’ Atari label and will be available for personal computer across North America this week. The highly anticipated Dungeons & Dragons(R) computer game has been rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB and has a suggested retail price of $59.99.

Neverwinter Nights redefines the electronic role-playing game genre using the fully 3D BioWare Aurora Engine and the Third Edition of the Dungeons & Dragons core rulebook, published by Wizards of the Coast, Inc. The game contains an amazing 60-100 hour single player campaign that is also playable in multiplayer mode. More than just a game, Neverwinter Nights breaks new ground as the first complete role-playing system for the computer platform, allowing its players to step into the shoes of the Dungeon Master to tell their own stories and create their own adventures in the spirit of the exciting pen and paper original using the powerful Neverwinter Aurora toolset.

From what we heard the game is actually already available .. in Israel .. go figure
