Steady now, it’s not long until it’s here…

Neverwinter Nights 2 will feature more than 10 new companions that players will encounter and join in their ongoing adventures in the lands of Faerun. Players will be able to select up to three additional companions to adventure with at any particular time

Along with the larger party size comes increased companion complexity in all aspects from enhanced usefulness and combat effectiveness to dramatically improved personalities, dialogue and story background.

In addition, companions in Neverwinter Nights 2 take full advantage of the game’s complex influence system, which dramatically alters the player characters’ alignment and the world’s reaction to the player based upon the actions and choices made during the course of game play. Just as the world will change based upon the player’s actions, companions will also react directly to the player characters’ alignment and the decisions they make.

The more a companion trusts the player the more likely it will share its history, fears and even secrets. Likewise, the more divergent the player’s point of view is from a companion, the greater the potential for loss of influence and, in some cases, may even lead to the companion abandoning the player during gameplay.

In Neverwinter Nights 2, players will also have the ability to select and control companion actions, including guiding their spell selections, attacks and other special abilities. Players can also simply allow each companion’s advanced artificial intelligence to take over, which will ensure an appropriate response to any given situation.

In addition, each companion in Neverwinter Nights 2 has also been designed to fill both a role-playing personality role as well as a specific class support role. No matter what class a player chooses to start with, the selection of available companions will allow players to balance out their party to reflect the style of play they prefer.
