Neverwinter Nights 2 Preview

The folks at 1Up have posted a short preview of Obsidian Entertainment's upcoming Neverwinter Nights sequel.
Further, the party system is being expanded, allowing up to four characters to join your quests, and up to seven summoned creatures to be under your control, in addition to specific story based characters which will pop up from time to time. The game will utilize the Knights of the Old Republic 2 character influence system, which will affect how the party members will work with you.
