    Default Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition to Come to the iOS Platform this Month


    Trent Oster, the creative director of the previous Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition recently announced that Baldur’s Gate II, will be coming to the App Store an Enhanced Edition later this month. So far, Baldur’s Gate on iOS has had a contentious existence. When the first edition was released for iOS, the game was pulled from the App Store in June for legal issues. It took roughly two months for the game to finally return. There weren’t any signs that any such legal issues will arise this time for Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, which is good news as the sequel was regarded as being far superior to the original by many critics and gamers alike.

    Those of you wondering what Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition will tout should read the following:

    The Final Chapter – Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition includes Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal, the epic conclusion of the Bhaalspawn saga.

    Four New Party Members – Bundled with the PC and Mac versions and available as DLC for iPad and Android, four new characters can join you on your journey. At the behest of his dark patron, Dorn Il-Khan plunders and defiles the Sword Coast. Hunted by Red Wizards, Neera the Wild Mage evades and disrupts the Thayans at every turn. Exercising his growing combat mastery, the monk Rasaad yn Bashir leaves his former allies to hunt the dark figure that corrupted his brother. A mysterious thief in service to mysterious master seeks powerful artifacts from across the globe. Recruit them, use their powers, and uncover over 30 new locations.

    The Black Pits 2: Gladiators of Thay – Explore the tactical depth of high-level Dungeons & Dragons combat. Undermine your captors and prey upon their weaknesses while you dodge traps and battle for your life against Demi-Liches, Mind Flayers, and Githyanki.

    Easy Multiplayer – Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition makes it easy to find, list, and join multiplayer games, even while behind a firewall.
    Oster went on to note that Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition was submitted to Apple on December 8. There isn’t any set release date for the game as of yet but that probably just means that the game will most likely just go live as soon as Apple approves it. Most apps are generally approved within two weeks, so it looks like fans could be playing this classic around Christmas time if everything works out.
