Evil stirs beneath the Spine of the World. In the northernmost reaches of the Forgotten Realms lies the awe-inspiring Icewind Dale. Journey to the Spine of the World, a harsh and unforgiving territory settled by only the hardiest folk. Encounter the cunning and fearsome beasts that make their home among the snow-shrouded peaks. Beneath the wind-carved glaciers and mountainsides, confront the evil that schemes to wreak destruction upon the face of Faerûn. This is the world of Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition. Originally released in 2000, Icewind Dale is a Dungeons & Dragons game set in Wizards of The Coast's legendary Forgotten Realms. This Enhanced Edition allows players to experience the epic adventure on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android, and includes a host of new features.
Even before Beamdog released Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition back in 2012, we knew we wanted to give Icewind Dale the same treatment. We love its mountain landscapes, the cold, haunting melodies of the game's soundtrack, and the challenging combat that tests even experienced players. Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition breathes new life into a classic game, bringing this glorious world to players new and old. Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition is driven by former modders-turned-developers, whose efforts have been a huge source of enjoyment and satisfaction for players since the release of Baldur's Gate in 1998. Over the past year we've worked hard to learn from mistakes made during the production of BG:EE and BGII:EE and built a game we are proud of on every level - with some extremely nerdy arguments about AD&D rulesets along the way. Drawing on our fan community's extensive experience with and passion for the series, we have also put IWD:EE through the wringer of community beta-testing to ensure it is the very best it can be - and we can't wait to share what we have produced.
