If you’ve always wondered what can change the nature of a man but never wanted to play the clunky old version of Planescape: Torment (or bother with mods), here’s a new option: Planescape Torment: Enhanced Edition, announced today by the folks at Beamdog (best known for Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition).
The expansion to beloved 17-year-old video game Baldur’s Gate has been getting shelled with angry user reviews all week. The complaints? Many are coming from people who say they are angry that the game is buggy and also filled with “social justice” issues and “LGBT tokenism.”
Baldur’s Gate is one of the most revered RPG series in video game history. It helped write the book on Western-style RPGs, putting a focus on memorable followers and party-based combat, and tossing it all in a blender with a dungeon and a dragon. Nearly two decades later, it’s back.
David Gaider, who left BioWare after 17 years at the company, is now creative director at Beamdog. Given that Gaider used to work on the Baldur’s Gate games, maybe he’s going to be working on the long-rumored Baldur’s Gate 3?
It’s been 17 years since the release of Baldur’s Gate, which, of course, makes this the perfect time for an expansion pack.
Now that Trent Oster and his team at Beamdog have finished enhancing Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II, they're moving north up the Sword Coast for an enhanced edition of Icewind Dale, coming later this year to iOS, Android and PC.
The enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate II just came out on iPad, and the folks who made it want to convince you that it's worth your time and money.
One of the best role-playing games ever made is coming back on November 15. Like the enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate before it, BG2 is getting a total overhaul: four new party members, a widescreen version, and so forth.
Well, this is a drag. Citing contractual issues, the people who made Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition have removed it from sale on their site and the Apple App store. The game won't be getting an upcoming patch, and the Android version has been put on hold, as has the planned enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate II.
For the past week PC gamers have been enjoying the enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate, a fourteen-year-old BioWare role-playing game that many consider to be the greatest Dungeons & Dragons video game ever made. Now it's iPad owners' turn to rediscover the magic.
When PC role-playing classic Baldur's Gate was released in 1998, I was writing for a small gaming news site called Videogamers.com. BioWare's masterpiece was my first official PC game review. While Videogamers.com is long gone, the magical Internet Wayback Machine houses an archived version of the review, at least…
On November 30, 1998, a little-known company called BioWare released a strangely-titled game named Baldur's Gate for personal computers. It was critically and commercially acclaimed, an excellent RPG with a gigantic world, interesting characters, and a ton of little details to discover and enjoy.
Happy Thanksgiving! Take a trailer for the upcoming remake of one of the greatest RPGs ever made. After some big delays, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition should be out next Wednesday for PC (and somewhere around then for iPad as well).
If you've been getting the urge to replay Baldur's Gate, you might want to wait til this fall.
The upcoming rerelease of Baldur's Gate will get its own paid DLC.
Classic Western role-playing games are hard to find these days. The most successful ones are chimeras, like Mass Effect 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, games that graft a role-playing game's quests and statistics onto shooting or action-based mechanics. Even party-based RPG series like Dragon Age can't seem to…
Following up on last night's Baldur's Gate website tease, today a YouTube user named Beamdogger has uploaded a teaser trailer for...something, featuring voice clips from both Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II and the world's longest logo reveal. Update: Looks like it's fake.
It's been eleven years since PC role-playing gamers claimed the throne of Bhaal, Lord of Murder, bringing BioWare's epic Baldur's Gate series to a satisfying close, but has the entire tale been told? New developments at the game's website suggest there's still life in the old death god yet.
