Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter Preview

27 Oct 2000

Computer Games Online has posted up a preview of the upcoming Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter expansion pack. Definitely going to be one of my must-buys when it's released. Here's a bit of what they had to say:
In terms of gameplay, the design team is adding a number of features from Baldur's Gate II, such as gem bags and scroll cases. A new feature, ranger tracking, should be fairly interesting, especially for people playing the game for the first time. It allows rangers to gain information about what people and monsters are in an area, how many there are, and so on. For the power gamers worried about the experience cap, it has been raised to 2,900,000. This allows clerics to reach 20th level, druids to reach 14th level, fighters to reach 19th level, wizards, paladins and rangers to reach 17th level, and thieves and bards to reach beyond 20th level.
