A collection of classic BioWare roleplaying games from the past will be arriving on consoles later this year much to the delight of fans of these games. Physical and digital copies of Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate ll and Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment will all hit stores on September 24th in North America. Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition will be available on December 3rd. How cool is that?
All of the titles will be available for PS4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch. You can thank game developers and publishers Skybound Games and Beamdog for bringing the collection of much loved RPGs to these new systems. The companies say that the games will be tailor-made for consoles, with controls optimized for their controllers. All of the games have been given a graphics update and native support for high-resolution, widescreen displays that would have been rare when they were originally released.
There’s also new content and new characters, classes, and player creation options. There are even multiplayer functions in some titles so you can play with your friends. Skybound Games and Beamdog say they’ve fixed some old bugs, improved character balance, and spruced up the user interface too. Awesome.
