Best ofWe decided to ask the entire PC Gamer team who among the vast pantheon of BioWare NPCs they hate, and who they love.
Baldur’s Gate was one of my formative PC gaming experiences. I have vivid memories of sitting in the glow of my old CRT monitor on a Friday evening after school, dungeon crawling until the sun rose. I’ve never been one for misty-eyed nostalgia, but last week I felt compelled to reinstall it. It was almost midnight, and I had work the next day, but I didn’t think I’d be playing for long. Just
A whole slew of new screenshots have just landed in time to remind you that Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition is landing this Friday. All of the original art has been remastered into high-res, but the Dungeons & Dragons–based rule system and gameplay remains intact. The new edition also has four new allies and their various quest lines to explore, along with an arena challenge that focuses

Okay, so the recent enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate wasn't quite the triumph we hoped it to be—it scored decently in our review, but still didn't manage to match a modded-up version of the original release. Ah, but will playing in full 3D change things? We can find out now thanks to Baldur's Gate: Reloaded, a lovingly crafted fan mod that uproots the entire game and rearranges it in Neverwinter
Despite it seeming like Overhaul's Baldur's Gate overhaul would remain tied to the developer's Beamdog distribution service, the game has now gathered its party and ventured forth to Steam. Top news, right? Well, as it turns out, the Steam release may not be the most enhanced edition of the Enhanced Edition. According to tweets by Trent Oster, BG:EE's Creative Director, "Atari did the
Face Off pits two gladiators against each other as they tackle gaming's most perplexing conundrums. This New Year's Eve edition is a chronological throw-down: which decade gave PC gaming the most? Podcast Producer Erik Belsaas says it was the '90s—the origin of modern PC gaming. Executive Editor Evan Lahti insists it was the '00s, with its speedy internet, better PCs, and shinier graphics engines.
According to Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart, Baldur's Gate 3 was on the table in a serious way not too long ago. In an interview with Kotaku, he revealed that Atari, owners of the rights to Dungeons & Dragons-based games, were interested in the project and had even given the verbal thumbs-up on a Mass Effect-sized budget.
BioWare's classic 1998 RPG Baldur's Gate is getting the "enhanced" treatment, and it's only a couple of days before it'll be available to play all over again (November 28, to be precise). To celebrate the launch, a new gameplay trailer has been released showing all manner of isometric brutality. The new edition will also release on iPad some time after the PC launch.
Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition Creative Director Trent Oster talked to us recently about Overhaul Games' remastering of the classic BioWare RPGs, as well as the notable possibility of a new Baldur's Gate game. Another highlight from the interview was Oster's comments about the volume of writing in Baldur's Gate, an Atari localization meltdown over Neverwinter Nights' 1.2 million words, and how
Earlier this week I chatted with Beamdog and Overhaul Games' Trent Oster, the BioWare veteran who's heading up development of Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition. The full transcript will be posted next week, but in the meantime, Oster had some interesting remarks regarding the possibility of a new game in the Baldur's Gate series, which ended in 2004 with the cancellation of Baldur's Gate III.
Well, this is a pleasant punch of the nostalgia button: Fallout and Icewind Dale creator Black Isle Studios breathes life anew.
Imagine playing a bit of Baldur's gate with a friend sat a hundred miles away on their couch playing along on an iPad. That combination of futuristic cross-platform sorcery and D&D-fuelled nostalgia will become a reality this September when Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition arrives. "Bgee will have co-op multiplayer and will work across platforms" tweets creative director Trent Oster. "iPad can
There's going to be more to Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition than you remember, though Beamdog/Overhaul's Trent Oster wants to be clear on a couple of things before anyone reaches for the torches, pitchforks or giant banners with the word "BETRAYAL!" in someone else's blood. But what could possibly be added to Baldur's Gate? We have a few ideas...
Beamdog boss Trent Oster has been throwing out tidbits of information on the upcoming Enhanced Edition of Baldur's Gate in a flurry of activity on Twitter, spotted by Shacknews.
