Baldur’s Gate I & II, Dragonspear Expansion, Planescape And Neverwinter Nights Coming To Console (VIDEO)
This past few weeks have been incredible for Baldur’s Gate fans. Recently, Wizards of the Coast announced a brand new Dungeons & Dragons adventure called Descent Into Avernus, geared for lower level players and acting as a gateway to hell by way of Baldur’s Gate. The new adventure can now only be construed as foreshadowing for what was to come, as just yesterday Divinity: Original Sin 2 maker Larian Studios teased the development of Baldur’s Gate 3, making it the first new game in 18 years since the original trilogy concluded back in 2001. Now, it appears that said original games certainly aren’t being thrown to the wayside, as it has been revealed that Baldur’s Gate 1 & 2, the Siege of Dragonspear expansion, and Planescape: Torment and Neverwinter Nights are all coming to console.
The news comes by way of Skybound Games, who are teaming up with Beamdog to breathe new life into the iconic D&D RPG titles by bringing them to current-gen consoles. Skybound released a reveal trailer showing off bits and pieces from each game, which can be found below:
Here’s the breakdown of what’s coming soon to consoles, courtesy of the developer:
- The Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pack: Celebrating the series’ 20th anniversary, the original Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and its sequel, Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, return with all DLC and restored quest content, as well as the Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear expansion, featuring new original content developed by Beamdog to bridge the two games.
- Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition / Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition: Two must-play games and all their DLC in one package – the chilling Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition, plus its expansions, and the enhanced edition of 1999’s RPG of the Year, Planescape: Torment.
