For those of you attending: Comic Con, Gen Con, Penny Arcade Expo or Dragon*Con be sure to stop by and check out Neverwinter Nights 2. We saw it on Day 1 at E3 on our e3coverage.com website and it was the most downloaded video!

Atari, Inc and Obsidian Entertainment today announced plans to visit and demonstrate the highly-anticipated Neverwinter Nights 2 at several consumer conventions this summer. Neverwinter Nights 2 is set in the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Forgotten Realms universe created by Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of Hasbro, Inc. and will transport players back to the embattled city of Neverwinter. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS is under license from the Hasbro Properties Group, the intellectual property development arm of Hasbro.

The Neverwinter Nights 2 Summer Tour will include guest appearances, speaking engagements and product demonstrations at several popular consumer conventions, including San Diego’s Comic Con, Gen Con in Indianapolis, Seattle’s Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) and Dragon*Con in Atlanta. Attending fans will be treated to in-depth demonstrations of the Neverwinter Nights 2 single-player campaign, its multiplayer capabilities, as well as tutorials of the immensely powerful toolset that will ship with the game this fall.
