Description

This add-on to the widely popular Baldur's Gate gives you new items, voices, abilities, and quests. This does not offer an extension to the main plot of the game but offers you four new quests, all of which are very large and will take hours to complete. It adds new areas to the game world, including a town named Ulgoth's Beard and a large dungeon, Durlag Tower. The game is played from an overhead view and is very much just click-and-play gaming. The game is set in the most popular realm for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: the Forgotten Realms.
