'Baldur's Gate' and 'Baldur's Gate 2' get graphical update guide, courtesy of GOG

Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate 2 received a guide from Good Old Games to help players apply graphical updates to the games.

Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate 2, the cult classic role-playing games developed by BioWare, received a guide from Good Old Games to help players apply graphical updates to the original games.

Though there is an active commercial project to provide graphical updates to the games and release them as Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition, it was recently delayed until November 30th. GOG decided to provide a guide written by user GoJays2025 to provide a similar experience. The games are available for as little as $3.49 each during the site's "Diamonds of D&D" promotion, which bundles as many as nine Dungeons & Dragons PC games together at a discount.

"With countless hours of gameplay, captivating stories, colorful characters, and many memorable locations they're one of the most intense and extensive role-playing experiences you can get while sitting in front of your PC," according to a post on GOG. "But to say that they didn't age at all might be a bit of a stretch. That's why some people would go a great distance modding and upgrading both those titles to combine them into one, seamless, visually updated game — an enhanced edition, if you will."

Earlier today, BioWare's co-founders, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, announced their retirement from the Edmonton, Alberta-based company.
