Originally released in 2000, Icewind Dale is hailed as a classic Dungeons & Dragons adventure based in Wizards of The Coast's Forgotten Realms campaign setting.

In the northernmost reaches of the Forgotten Realms lies the region of icy tundra known as Icewind Dale. Journey deep into the Spine of the World mountains, a harsh and unforgiving territory settled by only the hardiest folk. Encounter fearsome beasts that have learned the cunning and ferocity needed to survive among the snow-shrouded peaks. Confront an evil that schemes beneath the carven glaciers and mountainsides to wreak destruction upon the face of Faerûn.

This is the world of Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition.

The Enhanced Edition will allow new and experienced gamers alike to enjoy this epic adventure as never before.

Icewind Dale has been enhanced with new kits and character classes, dozens of new items and spells, and restored quest material cut from the original game. The redesigned user interface features Zoom capabilities and a Quickloot Bar, among numerous other improvements. Up to six players can simultaneously enjoy Icewind Dale with the new cross-platform multiplayer mode.

New Features:

  • Swords and Sorcery: Discover dozens of new spells and items, including new magic armor and weapons.
  • Blackguards and Wizard Slayers: Select from 31 new kits and classes to create the perfect adventuring party.
  • A New Look: Experience the Enhanced Edition's all new interface, including the new Quickloot bar.
  • Bring A Friend: Join your fellow adventurers in cooperative, cross-platform multiplayer games.
  • See The Unseen: Explore six expanded quests, content cut from the original game, now finished and restored.
  • More to Experience: Enjoy the countless bug fixes and improvements that await you in Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition!
  • Heart of Winter and Trials of the Luremaster expansions
  • A new "Story Mode" difficulty setting to allow players to experience all of the story with none of the Game Over screens
