Apple’s Games site has posted a feature looking at MacPlay’s soon-to-be-released
Baldur’s Gate II: Throne of Bhaal. It’s an expansion pack for MacPlay’s popular role playing adventure game, Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn.
In Throne of Bhaal, you find out more about your own background as first unveiled in Shadows of Amn. “… your story comes to an end,” explained Apple’s Brad Cook. “You can either embrace your dark roots and rule over the Forgotten Realms with an iron fist or reject them and possibly die in the process.”
Cook writes that the game’s story branches out into different possibilities and different endings, and your choice of your character’s alignment will affect its outcome as well. Like its predecessor, Throne of Bhaal is based on Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules, so it’s an authentic role playing game experience.
“There are plenty of monsters to slay during your journey, and Throne of Bhaal features some of the nastiest ones you’ll find in a fantasy RPG. In addition to the usual orcs and goblins, you’ll encounter dragons, giants, golems and other vicious creatures,” said Cook.
More details posted to Apple’s site include screenshots of the game, links to other games that Throne of Bhaal fans might like, and tips and tricks to get the most of your RPG experience. Check it out for details.
