Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition announced by Beamdog at PAX 2014

Icewind Dale

After tackling Black Isle/BioWare’s famed Infinity Engine games with Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 Enhanced Edition, developer Beamdog are progressing onto new Dungeons & Dragons adventures. Continuing through the Forgotten Realms, the team are treading more frosty ground in an enhanced, re-vamped version of Icewind Dale. 

The 2000 original will be remastered, along with expansion packs Heart of Winter and Trials of the Luremaster. The ‘enhanced’ tag refers to six expanded quests which now feature restored content cut from the original release, 60 new items, cross-platform multiplayer over PC and Mac, and a new “Story Mode” that helps players out with the game’s notorious difficulty, allowing them to work through the game’s narrative without Game Over screens. 

The Balder’s Gate Enhanced Editions will also bleed into Icewind Dale’s veins, with 31 class and kit combinations jumping ship from Balder’s Gate II, and 122 spells from Balder’s Gate. Half-orc will also be a playable race. 

The game is available to pre-order from Beamdog's website right now, or you can hold out for Steam or the App Store. 

So, is Beamdog gearing up to convert every Infinity Engine game? How long until we see Planescape Torment: Enhanced Edition grace the frontpage of Steam? Probably a couple of years after Icewind Dale II: Enhanced Edition, if logic serves.

I bought BG1:EE and BG2:EE without hesitation and haven't regretted my decision. Both are fantastic for me since I don't like modding at all and want all my games under same store.

I just hope that no one plays these on "easy mode" since that ruins half the fun.
