We are back with a new episode of Preorder Stories, where our host Maniac talks about some of the coolest and most unique preorder games in history. Today, we’ll be talking about BioWare’s original PC opus, Neverwinter Nights.

Neverwinter Nights was one of the first PC titles we can recall that had a launch price of $60 US, but gamers were not concerned about it. BioWare had already created some of the best PC RPGs of its day and expectations for this game were high. To preorder, Best Buy offered an empty box campaign (similar to what they would later offer for DOOM 3) for $10 US. However, they weren’t going to be selling you an empty box, or a box full of stuff you had no interest in. If you preordered Neverwinter Nights you would get more than exclusive box and poster, you would get a CD-ROM loaded with some incredible goodies. Let’s take a closer look.

BioWare would later go on to create Knights of the Old Republic and Mass Effect, two games that proved complex PC RPGs could work on a console. Maybe we will talk about them again in a future video.

Neverwinter Nights is out now exclusively for the PC.
