Default is some news on the new Ring of Winter coming soon!!

What up peeps!

So it's been awhile for me, but today I have the pleasure to finally announce that the team who brought you Icewind Dale has officially announced the new Icewind Dale expansion pack, entitled, "Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter" We've got a whole bunch of new stuff planned like:

· 800x600 resolution support (which works on the original game as well) OH MY!

· Drop away interfaces to play in fullscreen

· Improved OpenGL 3D support!

· Gem bags and scroll cases to assist with all those, well, gems and scrolls!

· Nearly 60 new spells for wizards, clerics, and druids (probably more considering what these designers try to slip past me)

· More than 80 new magic items, even refinements to items in the original game

· A higher experience point cap, tentatively set at 2,900,000 allowing for mega-high level characters.

· Hotkey for showing items on the ground and doorways, which is nice for looting those mounds of dead corpses littering the floor

We've been working hard on it for the past month or two, and in Black Isle style, we will have a whole bunch of free stuff to check out and download coming soon, so be sure to stop back often.

Oh, I should probably go over a little bit about the story! The expansion takes you to the northernmost town of Lonelywood, one of the Ten Towns in the region. Native barbarians have been organizing hordes of warriors to sweep across the region razing each of the Ten Towns in their wake. A mysterious traveler enlists the aid of your party to help stop what he believes is a grave mistake. For the sheen of gold, or the principle of justice, it is up to you to stop the storm of conflict. And of course, there's much more to it than that, but hey!

Ah... so after installing this add-on, you can use 800X600 in the original story also.
