Neverwinter Nights is a new Advanced Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game from BioWare, the developers of Baldur's Gate. Neverwinter Nights has not only been designed specifically for the online, multiplayer environment and the latest in 3D technology but it also allows you to experience all the magic of pen-and-paper Dungeon-Mastering on your home computer. Using Neverwinter Nights' powerful and user-friendly Solstice Toolset, you can create and populate entire new modular worlds and stories for others to adventure in. Even better, enter a multiplayer module as a Dungeon Master (DM) and you can alter the plot, possess characters, and manage combat from behind the scenes, all in real-time.
While Neverwinter Nights is a multiplayer online game, this is not the same as a massively multiplayer, persistent online world such as Ultima Online or EverQuest.
Neverwinter Nights has modeled its gameplay on the rich experience of pen-and-paper roleplaying: a small group of adventurers huddling around a table as their Dungeon Master weaves them into a tale of suspense, intrigue, and great daring.
With this goal in mind, Bioware has chosen to tell the Neverwinter Nights story through a series of self-contained, tightly crafted modules, each of them representing an evening's play. These modules are not linked into a linear chain, like beads along a string. Instead, they have been grouped into four clusters or 'environments.' Within each environment, you are free to play whichever modules you want, whenever you want, and in whatever order. If a bunch of friends are getting together to play 'The Bloodsail Conspiracy' module, go join them. Or if you've been wanting to try the 'Of Sons and Fathers' module instead, give it a shot.
Neither module is required to complete the story but each will give you different insights into the plot and may have an impact on how charactersrespond to you later in the game. Once you have completed enough modules within the environment, a special Hub Module will become available to you. This Hub Module serves as a portal between environments and completing it opens up a new cluster of modules for you to choose from.
Many people believe that multiplayer gaming and a strong focus on story exist at opposite ends of a spectrum. Yet Neverwinter Nights features a recurring cast of complex and memorable characters in an epic story that's rich with hopes, deceptions, and trials of faith. At the same time, our entire tale has been built from the ground up to provide an unsurpassable multiplayer experience. In Neverwinter, you get the best of both possible worlds.
Neverwinter Nights Expansion Pack: The Shadows of Undrentide
Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of Undrentide is the first official expansion pack for Neverwinter Nights!

Neverwinter Nights Expansion Pack: The Hordes of the Underdark
Please note that this is an Expansion Pack and requires the original Neverwinter Nights to play.
Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark is the second expansion for the revolutionary role-playing game Neverwinter Nights. BioWare has created a dark and dangerous world of adventure set in the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Your hands are callused from many years of weapon play, your mind is sharp from hundreds of books studied, your feet are nimble from slipping unseen and unheard past thousands of guards and your faith is unshakable in the gods you worship... but will it be enough for this final terror? Will you stand once more for those who cannot? You are the last hope for the Forgotten Realms, you must face the unstoppable, you must decide the fate of all. You are a hero... but are you a legend? Epic levels, new prestige classes, new creatures, spells, feats, weapons and new tilesets to explore... endless adventure!
The world is ignorant. Most will sleep away the blackest night and awake to welcome the new light of dawn secure that the light always returns. Not for all. Deep under the crust of humanity and civility is a place where nightmares never rest. Where the light of day cannot shine and slithering horrors dwell in the pits only seen in the visions of a madman. An entire world waits to be explored. An entire world waits for a bringer of light. The Underdark waits.

Epic levels allowing for characters up to level 40
6 new Prestige classes
4 new tilesets
16 new creatures

Over 40 new spells

Neverwinter Nights 2
Bards sing tales of heroes from ages past, but never have the Forgotten Realms so desperately needed a champion. Years have passed since the war between Luskan and Neverwinter, almost enough time for the wounds of war to heal. But the brief peace the Realms have known may be at an end. Tension growing between the mighty city-states means the Sword Coast again teeters on the edge of open war. Unnoticed, a greater danger stalks the City of Skilled Hands. Unbeknownst to the denizens of the North, deep in the Mere of Dead Men, dark forces from across the Realms have been rallied under the banner of a legendary evil. If left unchallenged, all of the North is doomed to fall under its power.
Even in this darkest hour, hope remains. A mysterious relic is borne to Neverwinter in the hands of a lone hero so that its secrets may be unlocked - secrets that carry the fate of all the North. So begins an epic tale of shattered alliances, noble acts and dark deeds to be told across the Realms for generations to come.
