Delve further into the Forgotten Realms with Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of Undrentide! Begin your adventure in the small mountain town of Hilltop as a student under the tutelage of a mage named Drogan, and then traverse the deadly Anauroch Desert to reach the ancient ruins of Netheril. Uncover a fiendish plot as you battle a multitude of new enemies through over 20 hours of original new gameplay. Play as any of the classes in the original Neverwinter Nights, or try out one of the five new Prestige Classes, which you can now customize even further with over 50 new spells and more than 30 new feats!
Co-developed by BioWare Corp. and FloodGate Entertainment, a studio comprised of former Looking Glass Studios employees, Shadows of Undrentide offers an all-new story-driven campaign, as well as new monsters, spells, skills, feats, classes, and items.
Shadows of Undrentide is the first expansion for the extremely popular Neverwinter Nights game, which introduces a new adventure designed for 1st level characters, although, there’s nothing stopping you from importing your 20th level character to bash heads with.
The expansion extends NWN by adding more goodies than you can shake a goblin at. The most interesting of which, is the inclusion of 5 prestige classes, these are essentially new classes specifically designed for multi-classing as they have certain requirement that must be met before you can access them. Sick of playing nice characters, want to let your inner evil out, then there are two prestige classes just for you which require an evil alignment.
If you like to drag a mercenary around with you to use as a meat shield, you can now use them as a pack mule as well. The expansion gives you access to your mercenary’s inventory which allows you to equip them as you see fit, and have them carry extra equipment when you can’t. You’re also able to control how your mercenary advances when they level up, simply talk to them and tell them what you want them to do, concentrate on a single class, or to multi-class.
The expansion also introduces more feats, spell, monsters, and items. Everything included can also be used in the original game except for the mercenary inventory control. That means you can create a new character and replay the original game with access to all the new feats, spells, and prestige classes.
Overall, an excellent expansion that also extends your options in the original game.
