Black Isle Studios Announces Icewind Dale

Black Isle Studios has announced that its next game will be an rpg known as Icewind Dale. Icewind Dale will utilize the second edition of the AD&D ruleset, and will run using an improved version of the Baldur's Gate engine.

Black Isle Studios' Feargus Urquhart had this to say about the game. "Our idea was to take the game engine from Baldur's Gate and create the ultimate AD&D dungeon crawl."

"We wanted something that reminded everyone of their first foray into dungeons like the Tomb of Horrors, with traps around every corner, and the undead crawling out of the walls."

Icewind Dale will allow party members to gain up to 15 levels as they battle a variety of creatures in the icy depths of the world.

The game is slated for release sometime next spring.
