Overhaul Games have announced that the remake of the classic Baldur’s Gate is coming to PC on 18th September. Versions will be available for iPad and Mac OS X and they will also come out sometime in September while a version for Android will come out later.
Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for PC includes three new characters: Dorn Il-Khan, Neera the Wild Mage, and Rasaad yn Bashir. One new area: The Black Pits. There will also new voice sets, support for high-resolution displays, “400 improvements to the original game” and improved multiplayer support which will allow play between all platforms. I don’t thing the orignal had multiplayer so that will be interesting.
From beamdog.com: “Running on an upgraded and improved version of the Infinity Engine, Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition™ includes the entire Baldur’s Gate adventure, the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack, and never-before-seen content including a new adventure and three new party members: the Calishite monk Rasaad yn Bashir, Neera the wild mage, and Dorn Il-Khan, the evil blackguard.”
- Required System Memory (MB): 512 MB.
- Minimum Graphics: GeForce 2 or Equivalent.
- Processor Speed (GHz): 1 GHZ.
The PC version will be released digitally through Beamdog and will cost $19.99 (£12.72). You can save $2 (£1.27) off the regular price if you pre-purchase it now.
I would still recommend checking out the old versions available on gog.com and atari.com. Read the post below for more information.
