Neverwinter Nights 2 Downloadable Expansion Set for Fall Release

Publisher Atari today sent word that the first Neverwinter Nights 2 Adventure Pack--a cute way of saying "downloadable content"--is on its way to the web, under the title Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate.

Set in the Forgotten Realms city of Westgate, players will begin the story with a "cursed treasure that threatens to destroy them," not very much unlike a World of Warcraft subscription. Defeating the treasure and completing the content will keep you busy for approximately 15 hours, according to Atari.

The pack was developed by the creators of the Neverwinter Nights mod Darkness over Daggerford, but this new project is no amateur effort, sporting full professional voice acting and music.

Players who own Neverwinter Nights 2 can buy and download the pack from the official Neverwinter Nights 2 website sometime later this fall.
