It was back in February when Skybound announced that in partnership with Beamdog that enhanced editions of Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate II, Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, Icewind Dale, Neverwinter Nights, and Planescape: Torment would be releasing on consoles though at the time neither platforms nor release dates were confirmed. Today, that has changed as it has been confirmed all of these games will be released on PS4, Xbox One. and Switch.
There’s still a bit of a wait though as the games will be releasing on September 24th in North America, and September 27th in other areas. That excludes Neverwinter Nights which will instead arrive later December 3rd in North America and December 6th elsewhere. There will be both physical and digital releases of the games. The physical editions are priced at $49.99 and are divided as follows.
● The Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pack: Celebrating the series’ 20th anniversary, the original Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and its sequel, Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, return with all DLC and restored quest content, as well as the Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear expansion, featuring new original content developed by Beamdog to bridge the two games.
● Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition / Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition: Two must-play games and all their DLC in one package – the chilling Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition, plus its expansions, and the enhanced edition of 1999’s RPG of the Year, Planescape: Torment.
● Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition: The 2002 Computer RPG of the Year and all its DLC deliver 10 standalone D&D-based adventures featuring co-op and online multiplayer.
This isn’t the only potential Baldur’s Gate news that has dropped this week. Yesterday Larian Studios updated its website with what appears to be a teaser for Baldur’s Gate III. We could see an announcement soon to coincide with the news arriving today, though E3 is the more likely time when we find out what Larian has up its sleeves.
