An enhanced edition of Baldur’s Gate was announced this month by developers Overhaul Games (which includes a few devs from Bioware that worked on the title originally), and now there’s even better news: That enhanced version is also making its way to the iPad. The game will be out on Apple’s tablet at the same time as the PC release, and it will include all of the updates and new content as the other platform. Additionally, there will be iPad-specific controls, such as pinching to zoom in and out and dragging to choose units to control. While they’re not done yet, Overhaul says there will be more touch-friendly menus and buttons in the interface as well.
Which is just awesome, if you ask me or any other old-school gamer with fond memories of the Baldur’s Gate series. We’ll obviously keep both eyes out for this one. The game is due out sometime later on this summer.
