It’d be terrible if we forgot that Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition is due out on 15 November. That’s presumably the same reasoning Beamdog have, which I suppose is why they’ve just released a trailer showing it off in all its retro glory.
Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition is an update of Baldur’s Gate 2 and its Throne of Bhaal expansion pack, aimed at fixing multiplayer, improving the interface, adding in all sorts of graphical improvements, and hurling in a bunch of new quests and characters – much like a wizard might throw a fireball. (Although said wizard would have to memorise the spell first, and be capable of casting Level 3 spells. The more you know, etc.) It was beset by mysterious legal troubles that were – equally mysteriously – cleared up at the end of August.
Pre-orders have been open since said legal troubles cleared up, and you can have a gander at the trailer (which manages to avoid spoiling anything; a fairly impressive feat since the opening of Baldur’s Gate 2 spoils the main plot twist of the previous game) below.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
