The development team at Overhaul Games announced that it plans to launch the Enhanced Edition for Baldur’s Gate on September 18 for the PC, the Mac and iOS-powered devices, with a date still to be set for the Android version of the game.
The Enhanced Edition
of the game will include a new character called Neera, who is described by the development team as a half-human, half-elf wild mage who is discovering her potential and can grow in the player party.
She is heavily involved with a new game area which will take about four hours to complete and which will include a romantic adventure.
The new characters also include Dorn Il-Khan and Rasaad yn Bashir.
Another new adventure will be called The Black Pits and will see the player create a full party of characters and then fight through fifteen battles, each of them tougher than the one before, in order to escape death in the bowels of the Underdark.
Overhaul Games promised that it would improve all the mechanics of the core Baldur’s Gate
title and would make it easy to play on mobile devices and tablets while keeping the main features of the game unchanged.
After the remake of the first Baldur’s Gate, the team working on it has plans to upgrade other titles that were created using the Infinity Engine.
If all those are successful on the market, then Overhaul Games might even think about creating and launching a true sequel for the much loved role-playing game series that reshaped the genre during the 90s.
Those who are willing to get Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition can now place a pre-order for the game for 17.99 dollars or Euro, and the game will cost just under 20 in both currencies when it is launched.
