Beamdog on Friday released its long-anticipated Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition for Mac and Windows. iPad and Android versions are expected down the road, as well.
Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition is a completely reworked version of the 2000 classic from BioWare. It's a medieval fantasy role playing game designed around actual Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules. The game follows the events of the original Baldur's Gate.
This "Enhanced Edition" release combines the Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal, the conclusion to the trilogy. Also included are four new non-player character party members - Dorn Il-Khan, a half-orc Blackguard, Neera, the Wild Mage, the monk Rasaad yn Bashir, and a thief seeking powerful artifacts.
The game also includes The Black Pits 2: Gladiators of Thay, a new adventure aimed at high-level players, remastered artwork based on the original renders, widescreen support, easy multiplayer, and other interface and gameplay improvements.
