Creating a mod can be a massive undertaking and when you decide to recreate a full game in 3D, well that’s taking mod making to another level.
This is excactly what Drew Rechner has done with Baldur’s Gate Reloaded, a mod that has recreated the original Baldur’s Gate and the expansion Tales of the Sword Coast with Nevewinter Nights 2. To get this up and running a copy of NWN2 and both the Mask of the Betrayer and Storm of Zehir expansion also need to installed.
This new version has obviously been a labour of love as Drew commented on his Facebook page: “Today marks the end of a near-seven year journey: the development of my game, Baldur’s Gate: Reloaded, a complete remake of the original Baldur’s Gate in the Neverwinter Nights 2 engine. Ridiculous amounts of hours, sweat, and tears were poured into this thing and now it’s finally released to the public!”
I think you’ll agree that this is a pretty amazing mod that fans of Baldur’s gate should check out right away. Watch the video, it should convince you to give this a go.
