Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition releases for PC on September 18th, with Mac, iPad and Android versions to follow.
BioWare's classic Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game Baldur's Gate will be re-released in its Enhanced Edition form this September, developer Overhaul Games announced today. The updated version of the 13-year-old PC game will add three new characters, a new adventure called "The Black Pits" and more than 400 improvements when it comes to PC, Mac, iPad and Android.
Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition will add three new playable characters to your party: Dorn II-Khan, the half-orc Blackguard; the monk Rasaad yn Bashir; and Neera, a half-elf wild mage. Both Rasaad and Neera come with their own playable adventure that explores new areas. Dorn II-Khan adds the Blackguard kit, which lets Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition fans "create [their] own champion of evil."
"The Black Pits" adventure boasts 15 levels of arena-style combat challenges and more than six hours of additional gameplay, Overhaul promises.
Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition also brings with it an updated interface, improved cross-platform multiplayer, new cinematics, gameplay features from the game's sequel ("class kits, new subraces and classes that were previously unavailable"), and hundreds of tweaks and bug fixes.
The PC version of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition will be released on September 18th for $19.99, with Mac and iPad versions also coming that month. An Android version is in the works, but has no official release date.
