Baldur's Gate II, Planescape, Icewind Dale

Baldur’s Gate & Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition and Planescape: Torment & Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition have had their release dates postponed slightly. The two collections will now release on Oct. 15. The other game announced around the same time, Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition, is still set for Dec. 6.

All of these games are coming with all of their DLC and expansions, plus restored story content. New content from Beamdog will even bridge the gap between Baldur’s Gate and its sequel.

The isometric RPGs are some of the best representations of Dungeons and Dragons in video games. The combat systems are based on the 2nd edition of D&D, and the scope of character interaction is truly massive. If you can’t get a group of friends together to play D&D, these games are just as good.

With tons of issues with ports in the last few months, a delay is welcome news. These games are so beloved that a bad port could sour the good intentions in the air. These games started coming out in the late ’90s, so if I have to wait a little longer then that’s okay. Let us know which of these games is your favorite in the comments.
