Back in February, publisher Skybound Games and developer Beamdog announced that they were bringing enhanced editions of Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate II, Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment, and Neverwinter Nights to consoles this year.
Now we have more information including that they will all launch this Fall on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Every one of those games except Neverwinter Nights will launch on September 24 in North America and September 27 in other regions. They will be $49.99 each. Neverwinter Nights will then follow on December 3 in North America and December 6 in other regions. Each game will also be available on its own digitally but we don’t have individual pricing for them at this time.
So in total, there will be 3 retail editions and you can read about each one below including which games are in which version.
- The Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pack: Celebrating the series’ 20th anniversary, the original Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and its sequel, Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, return with all downloadable content and restored quest content, as well as the Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear expansion, featuring new original content developed by Beamdog to bridge the two games.
- Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition / Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition: Two must-play games and all their downloadable content in one package—the chilling Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition, plus its expansions, and the enhanced edition of 1999’s RPG of the Year, Planescape: Torment.
