If you're a fan of D&D inspired RPGs but you've never played the original Neverwinter Nights due to its age, you might be interested to hear that the remastered version will be coming this March 27th. It is being developed by Beamdog, the studio behind the fairly solid remasters of Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, so chances are high that Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition will be a quality game as well.

In terms of improvements you're looking at support for modern resolutions, as well as the ability to adjust the UI so you won't have to spend the entire game squinting at absolutely tiny text. There will also be a variety of seemingly minor improvements to the visuals, most notably to the shaders and post-processing effects, as well as the ability to mess around with the contrast, vibrance, and depth of field options. Since trying to explain visual changes through words alone is a bit of a silly task, allow me to share with you the original reveal trailer. Have a gander:

As far as gameplay is concerned, the Enhanced Edition will bring with it the original Neverwinter Nights campaign, as well as the Shadows of Undertide and Hordes of the Underdark expansions. There will also be three bonus modules, essentially mini-campaigns, to explore: Kingmaker, ShadowGuard and Witch's Wake. And if you're looking for even more content, there will also be three premium modules to purchase: Pirates of the Sword Coast, Infinite Dungeons, and Wyvren Crown of Cormyr.

You can learn a little bit more about the Enhanced Edition, as well as the premium modules, by heading over to either Steam or the official website. And finally, I'll leave you with a couple of images showing off the Enhanced Edition in action:
