By far the greatest and best news today is the announcement of a release date and some game details for Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition. At least for the PC, anyway. The new, enhanced edition of Baldur’s Gate will be available for the PC on September 18, which is only, what, 7 and a half weeks? Or about 8 sleeps, ’cause I’ll be too excited for napping. There’s no firm release date for the other platforms just yet, but it will be in September as well, except for Android which is still TBA.
There are a bunch of new characters and adventures detailed as well, which promises to add up to another 18 hours of gameplay, though I was dismayed to notice that on the iPad, two of three extra characters are only available as in-app purchases. In any case, there is a lot of cool stuff to check out at their website, so I strongly suggest checking it out for more details.
