A selection of Beamdog’s games will be on display at the Skybound Games booth at PAX East 2019 from March 28 to 31.

Here is an overview of each title:

Customize your hero’s traits and abilities, recruit a party of brave allies, and explore the far corners of the Sword Coast in your search for adventure, profit… and the truth.

Baldurs Gate II: Enhanced Edition

Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition combines both Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn and Baldur’s Gate II: Throne of Bhaal. Bundled with the game on PC and Mac, and available as DLC on iOS and Android, are four diverse new characters, each with their own epic quest. Venture to the distant sands of Zakhara with your new companions, or lead them in a raid upon the home of the gods.

I hope it's an all in one box thing. Be a nice one to have on the shelf.

^ That's about the only way I'd consider picking it up. Although if the price is right, I never have played Icewind Dale.

Dark Alliance was more like Diablo, if I remember correctly.

Nope, the original was a more traditional rpg. Lots of dialogue, and party, turn-based combat.
