Series Neverwinter Nights

ollowing the climactic battle against the King of Shadows, you awaken alone and stranded deep beneath the earth. A dark hunger grows within you, threatening to devour your very soul. Will you fight against the hunger within or will you embrace it, revelling in your newfound power? Set in harsh, spirit-rich Rashemen, near the powerful nation of Thay, Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer presents players with an exciting new 20-30+ hour campaign filled with meaningful choices, rich characters, and surprising outcomes. Continue the adventure of your Neverwinter Nights 2 character or create a completely new epic hero – no previous Neverwinter Nights experience required. Hundreds of new gameplay options include epic levels; feats, spells, races, and classes; powerful weapons, armour, and crafting options; and hordes of diverse creatures.


Mask of the Betrayer is the first official expansion for Neverwinter Nights 2 and requires the original game to play. In the campaign, divided over different acts, the story picks up right away after the events of the base game. After defeating the King of Shadows, the player wakes up in an underground cavern in Rashemen near the kingdom of Thay with the shard removed from the chest. An encounter follows with Safiya, a member of the Red Wizards of Thay who play an important part in the game, along with the witches of Mulsantir. The events further take the player into a shadow realm. Unlike the original game, the atmosphere has become darker, with less room for humorous interventions. Influenced by the player's decisions, the game will move towards a good or an evil ending.

Next to the known races, the add-on introduces Planetouched: Genasi, Half-Elf: Half-Drow and Elf: Wild Elf. These can also be used to play the original game. New base classes include Favored Soul and Spirit Shaman, along with the prestige classes Arcane Scholar of Candlekeep, Invisible Blade, Red Wizard of Thay, Sacred Fist and Stormlord. Further additions include new monsters, scrolls, weapons and items. The game requires a high-level character to start (18 or up) and some default characters are available right away. The level cap has been raised to 30.
