Neverwinter Nights 2 Preview has put together a short preview of Neverwinter Nights 2, complete with commentary from Obsidian Entertainment's Feargus Urquhart and Chris Avellone.
So far, so impressive, but what's really moistening our lips is the game's all-new Stronghold System. Starting off with just a smallholding, you'll soon find yourself presiding over a burgeoning fortress that can be upgraded in a variety of aesthetic and military ways. You'll also be able to bolster its defensive capabilities by recruiting new warriors to your cause, which is just as well given that your stronghold will become Neverwinter's last line of defence against the tide of darkness that threatens the city's very existence. "Who you meet, how you treat them and how you solve their problems determines what recruits you can gather to help defend your stronghold," remarks Avellone. "You can also have miners, farmers and architects join your ranks to improve your home base."
