- Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate(TM) Now Available -

NEW YORK, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Atari, one of the world's most recognized video game publishers, today announced that the first Neverwinter Nights(TM) 2 Adventure Pack has been released exclusively for digital download. Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate provides over 15 hours of additional entertainment with all-new engrossing storylines, professional voice acting, enchanting musical scores, new in-game content, and much more. Neverwinter Nights 2 is set in the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS(R) Forgotten Realms(R) universe by Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS). DUNGEONS & DRAGONS is under license from Hasbro. Rated "T" for Teen, Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate is available for Windows platform at a suggested retail price of $9.99.

Developed by Ossian Studios, Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate is the first full featured Adventure Pack available from Atari. Set in the infamous Forgotten Realms city of Westgate, players find themselves in possession of a powerful but cursed treasure that threatens to destroy them. Linked to the underworld organization known as the Night Masks, the treasure will draw players into a city-spanning clash between warring factions. Players must choose their allegiance in order to break the curse and ultimately uncover a plot that threatens Westgate itself.

From the creators of the critically-acclaimed Neverwinter Nights module, Darkness over Daggerford, Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate will feature a non-linear, open-ended single-player campaign with numerous sidequests covering more than 15 hours of gameplay. Atari's new Adventure Pack will also feature 3 new companions; an entirely new underground Sewer tileset themed after the seedy underbelly of Westgate; a host of new monsters to do battle with, including some truly epic foes; an exciting original musical score; as well as hundreds of new lines of professionally recorded dialogue.

The Neverwinter Nights franchise has sold more than three million copies worldwide, is translated into 10 languages, sold in more than 40 countries and features one of the largest and most active fan communities in all of gaming. To date, fans of the franchise, which includes Neverwinter Nights, Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of Undrentide(TM), Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark(TM), Neverwinter Nights 2 and Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer(TM) have created more than 5,000 modifications to the original game using the award-winning toolset included with the full game that allows players to create their own universes, quests and storylines.

The new Mysteries of Westgate, as well as future adventure packs, requires the installation of Neverwinter Nights 2. Mysteries of Westgate is now available for purchase and direct download from Atari.
