Beamdog and Wizards of The Coast announced
at PAX today that pre-orders have begun for Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition ahead
of its upcoming release.
Originally released in 2000, Icewind Dale is hailed as a classic Dungeons &
Dragons adventure based in Wizards of The Coast's legendary Forgotten Realms
campaign setting. The Enhanced Edition will allow new and experienced gamers
alike to enjoy this epic adventure as never before. Available on PC, Mac, iPad,
and Android tablets and phones, the game will retail for $19.99 on desktop and
is available for pre-order now.
Icewind Dale has been enhanced with new kits and character classes, dozens of
new items and spells, and restored quest material cut from the original game.
The redesigned user interface features Zoom capabilities and a Quickloot Bar,
among numerous other improvements. Up to six players can simultaneously enjoy
Icewind Dale with the new cross-platform multiplayer mode.
