Neverwinter Nights Set for Summer Release
10:25 AM | Richard Porcher | Comment on this story
Game publisher Infogrames recently sent out a press release confirming its intention to publish the hotly anticipated Neverwinter Nights, a groundbreaking role-playing game from developer BioWare.
The publishing rights had been under some contention lately between BioWare and license holder Interplay, but matters appear to have been settled, and Neverwinter Nights is slated for a worldwide release in the summer of this year. This is excellent news for RPG fans, especially for fans of BioWare's previous Mac hits Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II and of Icewind Dale, coming soon to the Mac from MacPlay.
Bruno Bonnell, Chairman and CEO of Infogrames, had this to say:
We are thrilled to add a product like Neverwinter Nights to our global catalog. The Dungeons & Dragons franchise has been a major force in defining the RPG genre and with Neverwinter Nights, BioWare has created a new standard of excellence. Retailers around the world are already eagerly awaiting this game and we are putting our full worldwide distribution network of 50,000 retail outlets behind this title to meet the demand this summer.Neverwinter Nights is highly regarded for its promise to be the closest possible experience to pen-and-paper role playing. With its modular nature, allowing players to design and play their own modules, and its "Dungeon Master" feature, which lets one player control the game while others play, Infogrames promises that Neverwinter Nights "will change everything you thought you knew about computer role playing games."
