One of the surprise hits of 1998 was the old school isometric role-playing game "Baldur's Gate", based on the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules and set in the ever-popular Forgotten Realms. Since the success of the original game, developers Bioware have been hard at work on a sequel - "Baldur's Gate II : Shadows Of Amn". Now that hard work is about to pay off, with news that the game has gone gold, meaning that it has been completed and a master disk has been sent off for duplication. According to the latest information we have from UK publisher Virgin Interactive, Baldur's Gate II should be on shelves in the UK on Friday September 29th.
