Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition revealed by Beamdog

Following their streak of Dungeons & Dragons enhancements, Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate 2, Beamdog and Wizards of the Coast have announced at Penny Arcade Expo that Icewind Dale is next in line for revamp. Beamdog’s division, Overhaul Games, has already started work on Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition for PC, MAC, iOS and Android. Bioware’s Infinity Engine classic Icewind Dale started back in 2000, as part of the Forgotten Realms campaign setting. According to the game’s description over at beamdog.com, they have “added 25% more Ice, and 34% more Wind! Dale levels remain unchanged.” The enhanced edition of Icewind Dale will include new spells and items along with a new interface, parts of the game that haven’t made the original cut and a cross-platform multiplayer.

Below is the list of all the new features of Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition mention in the FAQ section over at icewinddale.com
