Icewind Dale II Preview @ IGN

IGN.PC has posted a preview of Icewind Dale II, once again based upon the press copy. A snippet:

    The skill system is far to broad and rich to cover in any comprehensive detail here but you can select from a broad range of skills and abilities (called feats) that add personality (and more potential) to your character. Bluff confuses or misdirects your opponents. This skill is countered by the Concentration skill, which allows you character to perform actions even while being distracted (like, say, by an ogre chewing off his head). Feats include things like Blindfighting which lets you fight invisible enemies or those in the dark. Deflect arrows keeps you safe at a distance while Subvocal Spellcasting lets you cast spells in silence (or when an ogre is chewing off your mouth).
