Description official description

Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition is an enhanced re-release of Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and also includes the content of Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal (plus the two bonus merchants from the Collector's Edition). It carries over all technical changes introduced in Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition (support for higher resolutions, cross-platform multiplayer, the ability to zoom in, a quick save button in the UI, new kits and various engine bugfixes) but drops the new cutscenes. It also adds a quick-loot button which opens up an additional bar showing all near items on the ground. This edition removes the external configuration tool and the tutorial.

This edition adds four new NPCs (plus a fifth easter-egg character without special content). Dorn, Neera and Rasaad are already known from the predecessor; the evil thief Hexxat is new. All four NPCs have two questlines (one in Shadows of Amn and another in Throne of Bhaal) with a scope comparable to major sidequests from the original game, e.g. the planar sphere. Each questline features completely new areas and sometimes optional sidequests of their own (although these are fetch quests which Baldur's Gate II usually avoids). The characters have dialogue with the main character, banter with other NPCs and romances; for the first time in the series there is also a gay and lesbian romance available. Besides bugfixes, there are no changes to the original content.

Also back is the Black Pit game mode which is a straight continuation from the same story of the predecessor: after escaping the Underdark, the group is captured by a powerful group which forces them into another area in Thay. The player can either use a predefined group (including custom behaviour scripts) or create new characters. The basic procedure is the same as before: this a series of arena fights; between fights players receive money to buy new gear from traders. However, this time the environment is bigger, has more story elements and non-trading NPCs to talk to.

The GOG.com version of this release includes a redeemable key for Baldur's Gate II: Complete, which it replaced on the storefront.
