The sequel to the hit Baldur's Gate, Shadows of Amn continues the story of Gorion's Ward, as he battles wits with the evil elven wizard Jon Irenicus. Meet up with old and new companions and explore the city of Amn, the Underdark and more. Take your character from the original Baldur's Gate and import them into Baldur's Gate II, and meet new companions along the way as you take the fight to Irenicus and take control of your destiny.

Critically acclaimed upon release, Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn is considered one of the greatest RPG's of all time, and contains many of the modern hallmarks of RPG's from companion quests, romance options, and multiple branching paths through large-scale questlines. 

In 2001, an expansion titled Throne of Bhaal was released, picking up from the end of Shadows of Amn and focuses on high and epic-level play and bringing the Bhaalspawn's tale to a close.

in 2013, Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition was released gathering up the base game and the expansion, along with a number of fixes, compatibility work, and some new additions.
