GB Feature: NWN2: Storm of Zehir Interview

Several members of the Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir development team took some time out of their day to answer another round of our questions about the expansion pack. There’s some good information to be found within, including what sort of release schedule we can expect for not just SoZ, but Mysteries of Westgate, as well.

GB: Storm of Zehir, Mysteries of Westgate, and Patch 1.14… what order do you anticipate these being released in? Are there any additional tweaks that you’d like to make that aren’t going to make it into v1.14?

Rich Taylor: The next Neverwinter Nights 2 product to be released is going to be Storm of Zehir. The version of the game that will be on the DVD is going to be called 1.20. This release will include the authentication system that was determined to be a pre-requisite by Atari before Mysteries of Westgate could be released. Last I heard from Atari’s QA department, everything should be ready for MoW with the release of Storm of Zehir. There will be an update on the day this new expansion releases in order to update all of the clients with Neverwinter Nights 2 installed that don’t have the new expansion. This will bring all installations up to version 1.21. The next update after 1.21 will be released sometime in the next few months and will be referred to as 1.22. There’s a number of exciting changes planned for the 1.22 update, but we’ll wait until its contents are a more definite thing before going into much detail on them.
