NWN 2 for Mac ships
Aspyr Media today began shipping Neverwinter Nights 2 for Mac in North America. The computer role-playing game set in the fantasy world of the Forgotten Realms, one of the popular campaign settings of Dungeons and Dragons, was licensed from Atari and developed for Mac by Aspyr Studios. "Rise from a peasant to a full-fledged hero as you defend the Realms against one of the greatest threats of the age!" The game is priced at $50, and requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later.
Players build a character that suits a particular style of play -- good or evil, chaotic or lawful -- with any number of skills, feats, and professions to personalize gameplay.
"Whether lobbing fireballs and researching forgotten spells as a powerful Wizard, hacking a trail through legions of orcs as a Fighter armed only with a battle axe and your courage, or taking on the role of a Rogue that can slip into the shadows at a moment's notice, the choice is yours."
Players can recruit companions along the way as they work to discover the truth behind changing times and darkening days. The game features a 3D view that players can rotate as well as zoom, accessing game features through a simple and intuitive graphical interface.
