Black Isle Studios's sequel to Icewind Dale uses the same Infinity Engine that powered the Baldur's Gate series and Planescape: Torment. The game team has spent lots of time implementing new rules from 3rd Edition Dungeons and Dragons. Most of the 3rd Edition based races and classes are now playable and players will have a much easier time figuring out how their character is progressing. Also, high-level magic users will be rewarded with powerful new spells.
Icewind Dale II offers a chance to revisit the frozen northern reaches of the Forgotten Realms. The worst fear of the civilized realms has come true: the Goblinoids have united an army of misfits and they want to call the Ten Towns their own. Massive swarms of Orcs and Worg-mounted Goblins are attempting to overrun the town of Targos. A call has gone out to all those willing to face insurmountable odds. ~ All Game Guide
