Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition – Shipping Date Moved to November 2012
Overhaul Games has announced that Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition’s ship date has moved from September to November 2012 (including the Mac version). It’s a modern cross-platform remake of the original Baldur’s Gate (1998) and its Tales of the Sword Coast (1999) expansion pack, and will be available for $19.99 US through Apple’s Mac App Store.
It’s high on my list of most anticipated OS X games for the year – I loved the original Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II games, and while BioWare has strayed very far from those days, Overhaul Games appears to be trying hard to capture the spirit of those original D&D computer roleplaying games as well as bring them up to the modern era. I hate that they made this announcement so close to the original ship date, but better to release a solid game from the start.
