Icewind Dale II – Last of the Infinity Engine Games Now on GoG.com
Only one more Atari D&D title remains but this week the DRM-free classic game reseller GoG.com unveiled its Icewind Dale II complete pack for $10.
Icewind Dale II was the final Infinity Engine game produced by Interplay under its D&D license. The game continued the action heavy/story lite approach of the previous Black Isle title but also tweaked the game in preparation for the then newly released Dungeons & Dragons 3rd edition rules. While Bioware’s Neverwinter Nights would be the first fully 3rd edition compatible game, Icewind Dale II introduced a hybrid approach including Sorcerers and new more powerful player races like Drow Elves.
Unlike the original Icewind Dale, IWD II has a fairly well written story.
