Previous DLC, New content, and a whole lot more is included.
Five classic Dungeons & Dragons-based RPGs are coming to consoles for the first time, developers Skybound Games and Beamdog announced today.
The Enhanced Editions of Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate II, Neverwinter Nights, Planescape: Torment, and Icewind Dale will be sold in three separate collections, all of which are set to be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch later this year.
You can watch the reveal trailer above, and here’s a breakdown of what comes in each collection:
- The Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pack: Includes Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, all previous DLC, the Siege of Dragonspear expansion, and “new original content developed by Beamdog to bridge the two games.”
- Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition / Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition: Includes those two games, all previous DLC, and Icewind Dale’s expansions.
- Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition: Includes the game and all previous DLC, totalling “10 standalone D&D-based adventures featuring co-op and online multiplayer.”
Those three collections will be sold separately for $49.99 each. The first two will be released on September 24 in North America and September 27 elsewhere, while the last one won’t be released until December 3 in North America and December 6 elsewhere.
The official announcement also says that “Beamdog has upgraded all of the above titles with native support for high-resolution widescreen displays, controls optimized for console controllers, new standalone content, new characters and classes, new voice sets, expanded character creation options, improved multiplayer functionality, redesigns of the UI and UX, bug fixes, balance changes and more.”
This is the second time Baldur’s Gate has been in the news this week as Divinity: Original Sin developer Larian Studios potentially started teasing Baldur’s Gate 3 just yesterday.
