Some of the improved features you will find include:

  • Advanced Graphics Options: Pixel shaders and post-processing effects make for crisper, cleaner visuals. Enable contrast, vibrance, and depth of field options as preferred.
  • Community Endorsed: Original developers have teamed with key members of the Neverwinter Nights community to curate important fan-requested improvements to support players, storytellers, and modders.
  • Backwards Compatibility: Works with save games, modules, and mods from the original Neverwinter Nights. A galaxy of community created content awaits.
  • Restored Multiplayer: A completely rebuilt multiplayer system makes it easy to find online persistent worlds and game with friends
  • More Modder Opportunities: Toolset quality-of-life improvements, shaders, filters, texture maps, and a new material systems allow creators to make amazing looking models and modules.

There's plenty more little tweaks everywhere, with it being supported well and updated regularly. It does also include all the content from the Neverwinter Nights Diamond Edition too, so there's a lot on offer for RPG fans.

Really great to have Beamdog as a developer who supports Linux. Looks like they've supported it well for Linux gamers so far, with a few Linux improvements arriving with the latest patch

Check it out on GOG now.

This would be a lot more tempting as a Linux purchase if the Aurora toolset wasn't Windows-only.

Played this so much back in the day Btw gog is the only one with nwn2 since it got removed everywhere else.

Why so long? On Steam they release this game few months ago...
Anyway, game is now on small smale -25%, but for owners of classic Neverwinter Nights is for -50%.

Diamond Edition was my first Linux game! Does any one know if the original still runs on Linux?
Shmerl 12 October 2018 at 4:51 pm UTC
Is the game 64-bit?

UPDATE:

Oh, I see it's not:

Not really my kind of thing, not an RPG fan (enjoyed torchlight quite a lot though)

Still though, always great news to see more native linux games on GOG.com!

Yup, still run fine - tested few weeks ago on OpenMandriva Lx 3.

character models need updating also, and increases to textures, I wish companies would go to that effort, would be awesome. Atm the enemies look a bit hilarious and hard to take serious
