Baldur's Gate: EE Out on PC, But Delayed on Other Platforms

Th

ose looking forward to playing Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition on their tablets will be forced to wait just a bit longer.

Beamdog's Baldur's Gate redux, though due to launch simultaneously on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android platforms on November 28th, ended up only releasing on PC.

According to Beamdog founder Trent Oster, via his Twitter: "iOS build had a game-stopper bug. With current estimate for App Store approval, that puts us into next week. We're doing all we can. Our current crash is cross-platform, so the fixes are for all platforms. Legacy code bites again."

In regards to the Baldur's Gate Android build: "We'll get Android done before Christmas. The list of supported devices might be very Nvidia skewed though."

Unfortunately, the Mac OS X build approval process is taking even longer than iOS. As a result, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition only managed to make it onto PC. Still, a Mac, iOS, and Android release within the next month seems to be something quite probable.

    PC is the only *real* gaming platform in there anyway. In any case, I'd rather have a buggy mess and actually have the decision to play or wait for fixes, rather than waiting for some douche in an office some place to click "approve this app" in between tweets and FB status updates when it was fixed a week ago.

    PC FTW again.

    Doesn't seem so enhanced to me, but I'll get Planescape Torment EE if they ever release it.

    People who got the game on GOG should be able to get this version for a discount otherwise the publishers are being jerks.

    Publishers can be jerks when they got such a good game for sale. Thats when you know a game is good, hen customers dont mind spending money on the same product again and again.

    Not me, big fan of solid software releases myself, even if they are late.

    I liked BG2 more than 1. Icewind Dale series was good too.

    BG2 was definitely the king of RPG's. Immersive story, large world, plethora of classes, options, items, spells, and more.

    Great artwork, great design.

    If they ever make another baldurs gate (a true sequel, not necessarily a remake) hopefully it'll stick to the original formula that made it great. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
