I just love old RPG classics, especially Dungeons & Dragons! There was a time when the only way to get the “real” experience with a video game besides the original Pen & Paper way was to play games like the Baldurs Gate or Icewind Dale series. Of course there were those TSR games for Commodore 64,PC etc..and an occasional NES version also. So you can imagine my joy when I read about this version coming out. For those of you who have never experienced these types of games because of either your age or operating system not supporting it, I highly recommend it and believe me you will be sucked in by the great characters, storyline and gameplay. sure it is not a Skyrim, but it doesn’t have to be. All those new “graphically superior” games all came because of games like Baldur’s Gate and that is the reason you will love it. I actually still have my original “BIG” box PC editions..(Smiles)… RPG players will appreciate this game and finally have a chance to see what all the fuss was about back in the day.
The shiny release of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition will indeed arrive on PC next week, developer Overhaul Games has confirmed, so come celebrate by watching a trailer showing off retro RPG action. What does it look like? Well, you know, like Baldur’s Gate but a bit enhanced.
Overhaul has revamped BioWare’s classic with co-op, support for modern operating systems, high-res cutscenes, new party members and quests, and other jazz.
It’ll be sold exclusively through Overhaul’s parent company Beamdog, where you can pre-order now. If you use Beamdog’s client, you can preload the game now to start playing as soon as it’s out on November 28. Beamdog will also offer a standalone installer too, mind.
