Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Announced!

Gaming news don't get much better for me than this: Atari, Wizards of the Coast, and Overhaul Games have announced a summer release of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, which will be...well, an enhanced edition of one of the most influential and gorgeous RPGs to ever see the light of day. And I can't tell you how much that excites me!

I utterly loved Baldur's Gate, which took storytelling and intuitive gameplay to the next level back in 1998 and spawned not only an epic sequel and some add-ons, but also several spinoffs like the Neverwinter Nights and Icewind Dale series or the ultimately classic Planescape: Torment. And guess what? Even the great sequel will be overhauled, which is just plain awesome!

Word is that the "enhancement" will mostly affect the visual parts of both games, while the isometric view, interface, game contents, and overall gameplay probably won't change much, if at all. Sounds good to me, and I can't wait to return to Candlekeep once again!

Watch some original gameplay below and visit the official homepage for all relevant updates and more media stuff.
