A couple of months ago the amazing iOS port of the classic PC game Baldur’s Gate, was unceremoniously removed from the App Store. It was a dark day indeed for fans of the game, as it left plans of a port of Baldur’s Gate 2 and the new Baldur’s Gate 3 up in the air.
Whatever contractual hang-ups that resulted in the game getting pulled have apparently been resolved, and Baldur’s Gate is now back on the App Store. And if you head on over to the developer’s forum, you’ll see some vague news about an upcoming, apparently massive, patch for the game and rumblings about about Baldur’s Gate 2.
If you’re a fan of the original and missed the port when it came out initially, then this is good news. If you’re new to Baldur’s Gate and are wondering what the hub-bub is all about, then this is equally good news. I loved the game when it came out oh so many years ago, and continue to love the iOS port, warts and all.
This is a win-win no matter how you look at it.
