Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition hints dropped by Beamdog

Beamdog, the company behind recent ‘Enhanced Editions’ of titles like Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale are now dropping heavy hints about Planescape: Torment. Multiple tweets from the team’s account have pointed towards a four(ish) day countdown at planescape.com.

Tweets like “Get your Nameless vacation destination here!” are a pretty typical representation of what’s on their timeline right now. The Nameless One being, of course, the much-acclaimed RPG’s protagonist. Wizards of the Coast, who currently own the Planescape license, have also been directing attention towards the timer as well.

All of which would seem to suggest a build-up to some sort of Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition announcement. The timer will conclude around midday Pacific Time on Tuesday, so that’ll be when to update your journals.

      Great news, hopefully it will happen. Beamdog’s latest remakes has a bit high price but so far I have liked what they have done.

      As long as they don’t add any story content or new characters, then I’m ok with this. Beamdog utterly suck at writing. And any new additions they make to this masterpiece, would be a massive downgrade.

        Agreed, though I did like Neera in BG 1/2 EE because it was pretty cheesy. Dorn & others were just terrible.

        The original story and characters has definitely to stay unchanged. But personally I don’t mind if they extend the game in a way it is clearly distinguishable from the original story.

        I completely agree. Beam Dog simply cannot write good characters/story. As long as its just an update then I’ll be ok with this.
