The direct sequel to Dark Alliance, Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II allows players to select between five different characters attempting to save Baldur's Gate from a growing evil, lead by the deadly vampire Mordoc SeLanmere. 

Featuring five new classes to play as, but retaining the 3-D, top-town point of view and action-RPG combat, Dark Alliance II is a solid sequel to the only pair of Baldur's Gate games to be released exclusively for consoles.

A third sequel was planned, but due to the financial difficulties of Interplay Entertainment, along with an impending lawsuit with Dark Alliance developer Snowblind studios, the game was canceled early in development. This would be the final game developed and released by Black Isle Studios, after the they closed their doors in 2003.
