Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition to include multiplayer support

Overhaul Games recently revealed that they would be bringing a refreshed and revamped version of Baldur’s Gate, dubbed the Enhanced Edition, to the iPad this summer. The updated version of the game would feature improved graphics, as well as controls adapted for a touchscreen. You can add another new feature to the list, one that definitely sounds exciting: multiplayer support.

In an interview with Kotaku, the COO of Beamdog Cameron Tofer revealed that the game would include multiplayer support when it hits the iPad this summer. He also said that the game wouldn’t cost more than $10, and said it would be “crazy” to charge more than that for a PC game made in 1998.

Baldurs Gate is a pretty big game and we’re not cutting it down to size. There’s a boatload of content there, 80+ hours. But past ten dollars doesn’t make sense.

And when you do eventually make it through the original game on the iPad, you can look forward to the sequel. An enhanced edition of Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn is due to be released later this year.

The enhanced edition of Baldur’s Gate will feature the original game and the Tales of Sword Coast expansion pack. A new adventure and party member will also be included. It’s expected to be released sometime this summer.
