Some of the most beloved D&D-branded video games are heading to a new audience this fall as Skybound Games and Beamdog prepare packaged deluxe editions of Baldur’s Gate, Planescape: Torment, Icewind Dale, and Neverwinter Nights for a rerelease on new consoles.
These rereleases are for the most part the games you remember, but enhanced with high resolution support, new standalone content, new characters and classes, new voice sets, expanded character creation options, improved multiplayer functionality, and redesigns of the user interface. Both physical and digital versions are on the way.
“It’s such a pleasure to celebrate the 20th anniversary of one of the most legendary RPGs of all time, the original Baldur’s Gate, as well as the iconic games it inspired, by bringing these special enhanced editions to a new generation of players and platforms,” says Skybound Games CEO Ian Howe.
● 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.
You can expect the physical editions of Baldur’s Gate and Planescape on September 24. The physical for Neverwinter Nights will arrive a bit later, on December 3. They’ll each cost $49.99 on Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and XBox One.
