Forgotten Realms

Baldur's Gate takes you back to the Forgotten Realms campaign setting on a visually dazzling roleplaying adventure, one that brings to life the grand tradition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game through cutting edge art and technology. Immerse yourself in this quintessential medieval fantasy world, where nations hang in the balance of your actions, dark prophecies test your resolve, and heroic dreams can be fulfilled at last.

Huge game world - multi-CD set filled with nearly 10,000 scrolling game screens, all fully rendered in lush 16-bit SVGA graphics.

Gripping non-linear adventure that spans seven chapters, with dozens of subplots that branch in and out of the main scenario. Your decisions affect subsequent chapters and the entire game world as a whole.

Transparent interface can be modified to play in a turn based fashion, and makes it possible to play without knowing AD&D rules.

Set in TSR's best-selling Forgotten Realms campaign setting, the most popular and longest running of the Advanced Dungeon & Dragons roleplaying game worlds.

"I am Volo, and I have traveled more of these Realms than any other. I'd bet ye a bag of gold and a half-dozen kegs of bitter black ale that ye cannot look upon the murderous beasts and minions of evil in the adventure ye hold in your hand and not turn tail. So waste no more time in your drab, humdrum world - it is time to draw steel in Baldur's Gate and test your mettle. Who knows, ye may find me there waiting to pay off the bet - or propose a better one, double or nothing!"

Explore hundreds of intricately rendered buildings and structures.

Face off against more than 60 imposing monsters, including cunning hobgoblins and mighty ogres.

View characters in exquisite detail, down to skin and hair color, clothing, weapons and armor.

Invoke more than 100 spells - freeze enemies with an icy blast from a cone of cold, or incinerate them with a searing stream of magical flame.

Every building and structure is modeled and rendered in fine detail - taverns, temples, houses, arenas, stores, and brothels are meticulously created and visually stunning.

Features real-time environmental effects such as rain, snow, lightning, and fog, day and night lighting, plus dynamic full-color lighting effects from interior and exterior lamps and magic spells.

Create your character from a combination of six authentic AD&D races - human, elf, half-elf, dwarf, gnome, halfling - and 26 different classes and subclasses - fighter, thief, cleric, mage and subclasses such as druid and specialist mage.

Guide a party of up to five other characters, each with their own personalities and dispositions. Allows you to control party characters one at a time or as a group.
