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.
