Beamdog announced today that its next project will be Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition, sticking with classic Bioware RPGs, but moving forward into the 3D space. Neverwinter Nights was originally released in 2002 and the game is close to Beamdog's heart, as founder Trent Oster directed the original game. The company announced that the full reveal of the game is happening on Twitch at noon PST today.
One of the major enhancements coming to the game is 4K resolution support.
"We’ve added an improved display that looks great on modern 4k monitors, UI elements now adjust in size based on chosen resolution, and post-processing effects make for crisper, cleaner visuals. Save games, modules, and mods from the original Neverwinter Nights work in the Enhanced Edition," said the developer in a statement.
According to information from GameInformer, the game will see other enhanced graphics options, including "Pixel shaders and post-processing effects" and "contrast, vibrance, and depth of field options". Beamdog has also been working with the fan community on improvements for players and modders.
No release date for Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition has been given yet.
Beamdog was suspected of working on a new Planescape title, but the developer said that was just an exploration of some ideas and not a full product.
"The Beamdog creative and art teams often explore concepts, pitches, and designs touching on different Dungeons & Dragons and unique settings. This was the case of the Planescape: Unravelled character concepts shown in the recently released Next Level documentary," Beamdog founder Oster told Eurogamer. "Does this mean a new Planescape game is currently in the works at at Beamdog? Afraid not, the team is hard at work on other projects at this time."
