Baldur's Gate recreated as Neverwinter Nights 2 mod

A crazy mod team has spent seven years recreating Baldur's Gate in the Neverwinter Nights 2 engine. Not parts of it -- the whole thing. They didn't just start, either; it's done and it took seven years. Yup, it's crazy. It's...

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition finally comes to Mac

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is a hassle-free version of one of the best role-playing games of all time. It perhaps isn't as "enhanced" as it could have been, but since the core game remains largely untouched, you're ...

Review: Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition
by Patrick Hancock

Baldur's Gate will forever be regarded as one of the classic PC RPGs. A lot of people never experienced it back in 1998, and it's not exactly the best-looking game anymore. To complicate things, it can be a pain to get the old game to run on newer machines, even after GOG.com began selling the title.

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition not only remedies these issues, it also adds a good amount of new content, making it way easier to recommend to someone who previously missed out.

First look at Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition for iPad

Baldur's Gate I & II revived in new enhanced editions photo
Baldur's Gate I & II revived in new enhanced editions
by Holly Green

If you were one of the many who flooded camped out on the Baldur's Gate site to watch the clock count down on their big announcement...you probably saw a lot of the above image today. Now that the digital dust has cleared, I can inform you that Baldur's Gate is back! In a post on the official site, Overhaul Games reveals they've brought together a team to bring us enhanced editions of both Baldur's Gate I and II. These releases will be more than just a remake, they'll also include new content alongside the old, both crafted in a "reforged version of the Infinity Engine" with a promised variety of improvements. The development team also includes members who worked on the original games, thus ensuring the new content has a solid chance at fitting right into the Baldur's Gate universe.

The butt kicking for goodness begins again when Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition debuts this summer. Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition will come at a later, though no time frame has been given.
