Beamdog has recently made an announcement calling for testers to the beta version of Neverwinter Nights on Android.

Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition Android Beta

Beta test

A beta test is known as the last stage of testing a product, especially in terms of software or technology. This testing period is normally prior to any sort of commercial and official release. In this pre-release test, the intended audience tries out and then give feedback about the products. After that, the developers will collect all the early users' reviews and do improvement and adjustment before general release. Another purpose of a beta test is to catch public attention for the final product.

Besides, beta testing can be divided into multiple stages, called open or closed beta. A closed beta usually follows right after the alpha testing with limited or selected group of beta testers. Meanwhile, an open beta, also known as public testing would be launched in real to the general public 

Neverwinter Nights Android Beta

Inspire of exiting as a beta version, Neverwinter Nights on Android is not free, but the charge of $9.99. However, this price is still half cheaper than the price of $19.99 for the PC version. Of course, in the version for mobile, instead of a mouse and keyboard, the players will have to use a touchscreen.

To be specific, most of the playable content from the original Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition will remain in the upcoming game. However, the three of expansions Kingmaker, ShadowGuard, and Witch's Wake will come later as free downloads. Moreover, the developer added digital controls, allowing players to perform specific actions depending nearby subjects by tapping.

Another cool thing is the beta also works with save games, modules, and mods from the original game. So that you can continue playing even when running out of built-in content. Last but not least, the developer has promised an improved display for this port.

"Improved Display: Featuring a new re-engineered UI for tablet and phone play. Portrait, combat bar, inventory, and other UI elements adjust in size based on device resolution and can be scaled to your liking."
