Neverwinter Nights is a classic PC RPG that came out in 2002 and still has a very active community. One reason for the large community so long after the games release is because BioWare built up an incredible set of game building tools allowing anyone the ability to build campaigns, persistent worlds and basically anything you could think of. Lots of community content still exists and persistent worlds are still played now.

Recently Beamdog announced that they are going to release Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition with some new features such as:

* Improved Display: Your portrait, combat bar, inventory, and other UI elements adjust in size based on your chosen resolution including 1080p and 4k.
* Advanced Graphics Options: Pixel shaders and post-processing effects make for crisper, cleaner visuals. Enable contrast, vibrance, and depth of field options as preferred.
* Community Endorsed: Original developers have teamed with key members of the Neverwinter Nights community to curate important fan-requested improvements to support players, storytellers, and modders.
* Backwards Compatibility: Works with save games, modules, and mods from the original Neverwinter Nights. A galaxy of community created content awaits.

Looks like the the game will be optimized for larger monitors and some enhancements recommended by the community. Curious to see if more comes but right now it seems like a pretty nice set of light enhancements to a classic game.

I never personally played this, but I had a friend who did so I saw it a lot. This is a significant upgrade, wow!

And backwards compatibility with save files is half-expected, but mods... dang. That's incredible.

Yeah I don't think they could get away with breaking compatibility with all the mods and stuff the community made. That would be a non-starter for it's biggest fans.
