This game introduces three new characters and you can use them in the party and battle against enemies in this game.
The Monk Rasaad will have specific ability from his previous incarnation and the experience has turned him into a viable character in this game.
Likewise Wild Mage Neera and wicked Blackguard Dorn are more entertaining with their added powers in effect when they are in the battlefield.
The other one is enigmatic thief Hexaat who is her sub-plot is worthy of the aura of mystery that is built up around the character.
At all points, there will be a varied cast of characters to people your party, most with their own sub-quests, and branch points in the story that lead to radically different narratives.
You will eventually have up to six party members to control at a time, and every of them can be issued commands separately or the party can be instructed to attack as a whole.
Hitting the space bar will pause the game, so you manage specific commands for each character.
In line with this, you can learn the curve in that this is an adventure for high level characters, which means a seemingly endless waterfall of spell effects, magical items, and character powers to be learned, pondered over, and recombined to best equip your party.
When exploring through the maps, you will have to be careful towards hideously powerful traps and monsters, from demons to dragons that will get thrown at you around every turn.
You’ll need to master the rules and the abilities at your disposal to beat them using a real-time tactical combat system which allows you to pause to issue new orders.
To help you out, there is a Quick Save button that you should learn to lean on if you’re going to get anywhere.
On the other words, this game takes planning, choosing the right party members, and just a little bit of luck to overcome some of the more difficult encounters, leading to a very satisfying experience.
The Black Pits arena is arena battle mode which is especially for those who enjoy the combat side of things, and those who are searching for the experience and a bonus with an overhauled version of the Throne of Bhaal expansion pack.
In The Black Pits, you can play online with up to six people and you will have to create a separate save file for online play before going for action.
