Baldurs Gate II Goes Gold
Sept 14th 2000
Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn is the latest chapter in the
mythic saga that continues the much-loved Baldur's Gate storyline.
The Forgotten Realms® adventure ensues along the
southern portion of the Sword Coast in the merchant kingdom of
Amn. This region includes such diverse environments as the
Elven forests of Tethyr, the Cloudpeak Mountains, the Drow cities
of the Underdark, and the Capitol City of Amn, Athkatla.
Developed by BioWare, the same team responsible for Baldur's Gate,
Baldur's Gate II features an incredibly detailed design and story
with a highly engrossing plot showcasing immersive environments
and dynamic characters that will thrill and engage players
throughout the span of the game.
Fifteen NPC’s are available to join players in their quest,
along with hundreds of completely new creatures and access to over
130 new spells. Hundreds of new items also add flavor to the
game, including the legendary Holy Avenger and the venerated Staff
of the Magi. Higher-level character development and the
exceptionally diverse combat proficiency system will allow for an
expanded skill set including Two Weapon Fighting and
single weapon mastery. Over 20 new kits and classes have
been added to the already extensive class list from Baldur's Gate
to make Baldur's Gate II the most inclusive Advanced Dungeons
& Dragons® 2nd edition CRPG ever created.
Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn features an enhanced version of
the BioWare Infinity Engine, supporting resolutions of up to
800x600, giving the player superlative graphical improvements and
brilliance in a truly immersive world. The new graphics
supports 3-D Accelerator Cards, however they are not required to
enjoy the richness of the Baldur’s Gate II world. In
addition, the entire interface can be hidden to allow full screen
which will allow both novice and seasoned role players the
opportunity to experience an even richer gameplay experience.
