Apple Previews Baldur's Gate II
11:43 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Apple has updated the increasingly-active Games section of their web site with a detailed preview of Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn , the first of many titles to be published by the revitalized MacPlay brand. With interview material from members of MacPlay and BioWare (the original developers of the title), the preview provides a look behind the scenes as well as an overview of this epic RPG and the depth of its gameplay.

BG 2 was much praised for being more than a mere sequel; while second efforts can be just an extension of the first, this sequel broadened the series in depth, complexity and graphical beauty. The game has been cunningly designed to both reward those who have played through the first game (by allowing them to import their favorite character) but also welcome those who are new to the series with an extensive tutorial. Jump to the preview for more details on this exciting release, due later this Summer.
