Thankfully the new enhanced edition is now available for fans to purchase for $15 and brings with it plenty of adventuring and new loot for players to enjoy.

Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn is a computer role-playing game developed by BioWare and published by Black Isle Studios for Windows ways back in September 2000, and is based on the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition rule set.

“Baldur’s Gate II opens shortly after the events of Baldur’s Gate and continues the story of the protagonist, Gorion’s Ward, whose unique heritage has now gained him or her the attention of Jon Irenicus. The game’s plot revolves around the protagonist’s encounters with Irenicus, and is set south of the events in Baldur’s Gate in the country of Amn, mainly in and around the city of Athkatla.

“He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster… When you gaze long into the abyss, the abyss also gazes into you…”

Kidnapped. Imprisoned. Tortured. The wizard Irenicus holds you captive in his stronghold, attempting to strip you of the powers that are your birthright. Can you resist the evil within you, forge a legend of heroic proportions, and ultimately destroy the dark essence that haunts your dreams? Or will you embrace your monstrous nature, carve a swath of destruction across the realms, and ascend to godhood as the new Lord of Murder?”

Jump over to the Apple iTunes Store to download your copy now.
