Skybound Games is bringing all of Beamdog’s Enhanced Editions of classic Dungeons & Dragons video games to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch this fall. Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate 2, Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment will arrive in physical and digital versions on September 24. Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is slightly delayed, with its physical edition launching on December 3.
The five games originally released in the late 90s/early 2000s during a Golden Era of D&D video games. They are now being released as three physical packages priced at $49.99 each.
The Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pack includes the Enhanced Editions of Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2, as well as all their DLC and restored content. It also includes the Siege of Dragonspear expansion, which is all new content developed by Beamdog that serves to bridge the story between the two games.
Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition/Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition is the awkwardly named pack that includes, you guessed it, the Enhanced Editions of Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment, including Icewind Dale’s expansions.
The Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition includes the game as well as all the DLC, which comes out to 10 standalone D&D adventure modules. Neverwinter Nights also supports online multiplayer.
Each game will also be available for sale individually on each console’s digital store.
“It’s been nearly two decades since Baldur’s Gate was born from a D&D campaign between me and the game’s co-creators,” said Trent Oster, Beamdog CEO. “The longevity of this series and the games that followed has been both humbling and rewarding. Our team is thrilled to continue that tradition by finally making this wealth of amazing storytelling and gameplay available to everyone on modern consoles.”
All the enhanced editions feature rebuilt UI’s designed for consoles, upgraded graphics, new content, balanced and bug fixes, and improved multiplayer support.
