When Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition was pulled from the App Store a few months ago, we all thought the worst for the franchise. Would mobile users ever see updates to fix the glaring problems of the initial release? Would Baldur’s Gate 2 ever see the light of day?
A couple of weeks ago we received our answer to the first question, after Overhaul Games sorted out all of their legal knots. Then, as of last Friday, we finally have an answer about the sequel. Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition will be coming to the PC and Mac in November, with mobile versions to launch shortly afterwards.
Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition will feature both of the expansion packs, Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal, with four new characters available as DLC, and a new Black Pits arena as well. All in all, this is a pretty packed release, and it’s exciting news all around.
