    I saw that they started public beta testing for NWN2. So far only toolset and multiplayer are available, though. Unfortunatelly, I don't have enough computer to participate :o . Anyhow, the sites for signup are
    toolset
    multiplayer

    From what I understand, the toolset beta is mainly for people who have built something amazing with NWN1 - probably the Hall of Fame builders in the NWVault, sort of people. The multiplayer thing would be great though... all I need is a new graphics card *mutter mutter mutter*

    [​IMG] I think I'll pass this time... are any of our regulars here going to apply for the multiplayer beta? If so, I'd love it if you could take as many screenshots as you can, and provide a short (or long) report on the experience. As soon as the NDA gets lifted, it'll get spotlight treatment on SP.

    (Same goes for anyone here selected for the Toolset beta, of course.)

    I already applied to see if I can do beta testing. I never played NWN 1 online because I just got it in the mail.

    I've applied for both. Hoping that, as a builder for a PW, they'll accept me.

    Applied for multiplayer just now. Would love to get such a preview of the game. After a week of playing Stormreach 7day free trial, i'm looking forward to another take at 3.5 D&D multiplayer.

    I'm applying for Multiplayer - just did right now. My system surpasses all the recommended requirements and my RPG experience is pretty high, so I'm hoping I'll be selected. I'll keep you in mind when I'm taking screenshots Taluntain.

    It depends on what the NDA says. But from my understanding, yes, atleast for the toolset.
