Neverwinter Nights for Android Gets Another Massive Update!

It has been more than a year and a half since Beamdog released the 2002 classic RPG Neverwinter Nights for Android on Google Play. The patch includes usability, graphics, and performance in addition to a host of bug fixes. This follows another huge patch nearly a year ago that similarly improved the graphics and gameplay experience.


Last year we got a great patch that got applied just before I started a massive campaign that had me work through the main game, both official expansions and a couple of the extra modules. Some of the key items from that update were:

Installation to an SD card now available
Quick-Save button added
Labels added on all radial menus,
Improved UI
Enlarged dialog window,
Improved log/chat,
Camera rotation consistent with the PC version,
Improved instructions for camera modes and joystick operation,
Implemented True Type Fonts

The usability differences and overall stability in that patch were key to me being able to get through the game successfully.

Now Beamdog is out with another huge patch. Here are the latest release notes:

Added New DLC: Tyrants of the Moonsea
Native 64-bit support
Restored network compatibility with Persistent Worlds
Menu-bar can now dock at side of screen when viewing the log
Chat panel is now smaller to reveal more screen space
Screen no longer shrinks when using keyboard
Added higher resolution game textures
Users can now view their achievements via the options menu
Context button’s target-selection now follows the camera
Many bug fixes and performance improvements
Added an in-game GUI for nwsync

Beamdog hinted that many of the features of this most recent patch were crucial for getting the game ready for the much-delayed release for the iPad! That will be a great thing when it arrives – but I have been extremely happy with the performance and stability of the Android version.
