Between the main campaign guide, to minis, and even a comic series.
So get ready because we have to get info for everything that is releasing.
Full Book Description
Adventure is a dish best served cold. At least in Icwind Dale it is.
Beneath the unyielding night sky, you stand before a towering glacier and recite an ancient rhyme, causing a crack to form in the great wall of ice. Beyond this yawning fissure, the Caves of Hunger await. And past this icy dungeon is a secret so old and terrifying that few dare speak of it. The mad wizards of the Arcane Brotherhood long to possess that which the god of winter’s wrath has so coldly preserved—as do you! What fantastic secrets and treasures are entombed in the sunless heart of the glacier, and what will their discovery mean for the denizens of Icewind Dale? Can you save Ten-Towns from the Frostmaiden’s everlasting night?
Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden is a tale of dark terror that revisits the forlorn, flickering candlelights of civilization known as Ten-Towns and sheds light on the many bone-chilling locations that surround these frontier settlements.

Actress Aimee Garcia from Lucifer and Dexter and former WWE Superstar AJ Mendez are teaming up for this be series, and the synopsis for it is pretty interesting.
Comic Book Synopsis
At the Spine of the World takes place in Icewind Dale and Ten-Towns, an area blighted by feral beasts, continual blizzards, and some sort of strange madness that is gripping its residents. Saarvin, Dragonborn ranger, makes an appearance, alongside a host of colorful new characters!
The comic is launching on October 21st, and you can check out the cover below:
