The lights are on
Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition will bring BioWare's D&D classic, its expansion pack, some new content and a whole new party member to Apple's tablet later this year. You'll be able to relive the shame of dying to kobolds in full HD glory soon.
Overhaul Games is behind the port, which boasts an "upgraded and improved" version of the Infinity Engine that the Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and Fallout series all ran under the hood. It's not clear if BioWare has any connection to the project other than giving its blessing. However it shakes out, it's not like the new character is going to be able to hold a candle to Minsc anyway.
The worst part about this news: It's not Baldur's Gate II. Don't get me wrong; I adore Baldur's Gate and greet this announcement with enthusiasm, but the sequel is a superior game in all respects. Heck, you can make a case for BG II as the greatest RPG of all time.
Still, I applaud anything that increases the amount of isometric old-school Dungeons & Dragons in the world.

This makes me want to get an iPad. Slightly.
Sweet! I keep hearing that it's a fantastic game but i haven't had the pleasure of playing it. With my new iPad I will definitely have to look into getting this!
Sweet I will be getting this.
um, i really dont give 2 *** about ipad or tablets, is it coming to PC? I would have to imagine it will, 100% of the fanbase for the game are PC gamers.... i really hope this is the case, or i will be severely disappointed
I hope it will run on iPad 2 and not just the new one...
I will totally buy this game

I would prefer BG2 too, but I'll buy this in hopes that prompts them to make that.
Never played the Baldur's Gate games. Seems like a good idea to get the franchise name out again
I will be getting this, as long as its not 20 bucks
This could make me actually want an Ipad.
