Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and Siege of Dragonspear have received a huge number of bug fixes and enhancements with the 2.5 update. The list of changes is massive across all platforms, and this might be the perfect time to dive into the classic game and its newer expansion.
On Friday, Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition developers Beamdog announced on a livestream that Siege of Dragonspear, their follow-up to the original Baldur’s Gate that they released back in March of 2016, is coming to the iOS and Android platforms on March 10th.
Hello. I’m Cameron Kunzelman. I’m your new Weekend Editor.
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.
Whenever I think of BioWare's Baldur's Gate series, one line of dialogue springs immediately to mind: "Go for the eyes, Boo!" We might soon hear those words again, as Minsc and Boo will play a big role in Neverwinter's Elemental Evil expansion when it launches for PC March 17.
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.
In September of 2012, I got an e-mail from veteran writer and game designer Chris Avellone. He told me that he and a group of other designers at Obsidian were planning to launch a Kickstarter, and that they were looking to make an RPG in the style of old Infinity Engine games like Baldur's Gate and Planescape: Torment…
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.
Thirteen years after release, Baldur's Gate II is still one of the best role-playing games of all time. No joke. If you consider yourself an RPG fan, this is a game you have to play.
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.
It took him seven years, but yesterday, game designer Drew Rechner finally released Baldur's Gate: Reloaded, a ridiculous mod that puts the entirety of BioWare's classic RPG—including the expansion, Tales of the Sword Coast—into Neverwinter Nights 2.
