One of my favorite games of all time is the sprawling Advanced Dungeons & Dragons based RPG, Baldur’s Gate II. Featuring over 200+ hours of content, the game sees your character raised from a hero to a god as he takes on vampires, Beholders, dragons and drow. It’s the closest thing to a real nerds-and-basement tabletop RPG session you’ll ever have on a computer, and in the ten years since it has been released, nothing else has come close to its scope or its writing, and since all of the game’s levels were hand-painted, it still even looks pretty good.
Now Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II are coming to the iPad. Excuse me while I tear off my clothes, smear myself in vasoline and go absolutel bananas.
Beamdog Entertainment had previously been announced over the last few weeks to be working on Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, an expanded port of the first two Baldur’s Gate games updated for new platforms, and filled out with new characters, new levels, new adventures and better graphics.
All well and good, and I’d been secretly hoping it was coming to the Mac, but now Beamdog’s gone one further and confirmed that Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition will be coming to the iPad this summer.
