    Default Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Confirmed to be released on the iPad


    If you are an old-school RPG fan, than you are probably already aware that an enhanced edition of Baldur’s Gate was announced earlier this month by developers Overhaul Games. There seems to be even better news for those of you who are RPG fans and iPad owners as the developers announced that the enhanced version is also set to release on the iPad. The game will be out on Apple’s tablet at the same time as its PC release. Furthermore, it will even include all of the updates and new content found on the PC platform as well.

    The game is set to include full integration of the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack along with all the improvements and additions found in the PC version. The title is confirmed to be running on the refined Baldur’s Gate II Infinity Engine, giving gamers the opportunity to experience the "original adventure with the sequel’s refined graphics options and other engine tweaks."

    Overhaul also promised that the enhanced edition of the game will be featuring brand-new story driven content including more quests and a new party member. Although the finer details of what is going to be offered is still a secret, the company has promised that the additional story content will make its way onto the iPad along with intuitive touch-friendly menus and buttons in the interface to make the game an enjoyable one on a tablet.

    For those of you who are already eager to play the game, unfortunately you’ll have to wait until this summer for its release.

    Is it just me or does the creature in the pic look exactly like Emperor Zurg from Toy Story?

    I think this is pretty cool news. I loved the BG games (maybe they'll do IceWind Dale next!) and would like to try them out on my iPad. I think it could work very well with the touch screen unlike shooter style games.

    - ONLY for the iPad? Or for all iOS devices?

    I'd LOVE to play this on my iPhone 4S.

    It is kinda similar in the large picture. It looks exactly like him in the thumbnail for sure.

    In case you guys don't know, you can ALREADY play it on all iOS devices, together with Icewind Dale I & II, and Planescape Torment, using GemRb, provided you're jailbroken.

    Thanks to the great work by SyntaxError, the debugging by the users community, and the easy tutorial. Check it out on
