[Update #2]: Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition update has significantly improved the visuals!

[Update]: Neverwinter Nights has now received another hefty expansion - Tyrants of the Moonsea!

After only a few months since the original announcement, the remastered version of the classic cRPG Neverwinter Nights has now made its way to Steam. It has brought with it support for modern resolutions and the ability to actually read the text on today's monitors, a variety of minor graphical improvements, backwards compatibility with the original game, as well as some fan-requested improvements to both the storytelling and gameplay.

Unfortunately, the impressive graphical improvements Beamdog showcased a few weeks ago are currently not a part of the Enhanced Edition. Whether they will actually arrive or when they will do so, I'm afraid I simply don't know, and that is somewhat disappointing since Neverwinter Nights is one of those games that could really use a visual upgrade!

If you're wondering why I'm saying that, allow me to share with you the announcement trailer for the Enhanced Edition. It's fairly brief, but it'll get the point across:

The visuals aside, Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition comes with the original Neverwinter Nights campaign, the Shadows of Undertide and Hordes of the Underdark expansions, as well as three bonus modules/campaigns: Kingmaker, ShadowGuard and Witch's Wake. If you're looking for even more content to chow down on, there are also three premium modules to purchase: Pirates of the Sword Coast, Infinite Dungeons and Wyvren Crown of Cormyr.

The Infinite Dungeons DLC can easily be skipped since it's just a simple dungeon-crawler, but the other two are more like mini-expansions, so if you're really into Neverwinter Nights they might just be worth checking out. And if you don't feel like spending any extra money, there are also plenty of community-made campaigns to explore given that the Neverwinter Nights modding scene has been active for quite a while now.

You can learn more about Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition, as well as the three premium modules, by heading over to either Steam or the official website. Have fun!
