I have to admit that it has been ages since I have played Icewind Dale, that wonderful Black Isle Studios RPG that surprised so many of us Baldur’s Gate fans. Now there’s a Neverwinter Nights 2 mod that does a great job of recreating the game. All the details can be found on the mod’s download page, but the short of it is that it supports up to six player s and combat is optimized for four. Players start out at level 1. Naturally you’ll need to own a copy of Neverwinter Nights 2 to play it.
I always find remakes of the classics fascinating and it’s good to see that other people feel the way I do about Icewind Dale; that was just as good (and in some ways better) than BioWare’s Baldur’s Gate series. It, along with Planescape: Torment, showed that Black Isle really knew what they were doing. Most of those guys either ended up at Obsidian Entertainment (who developed Neverwinter Nights 2, for the record) or at InXile.
Anyway, I found this by way of my favorite Ultima site, Ultima Aiera.
Grab it and let me know what you think.
