Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Coming to OSX

Overhaul Games continues its slow trickle of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition news with the reveal that, in addition to the iPad release, the game will also be made available on Macs. As has been the norm so far, other details have been scant, saying only that the game runs on an “improved” version of the Infinity Engine, will include the entire base game plus the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion, and will feature new content, including a new party character. This version of the game also includes iCloud support, so there’s that.

Todd Brakke

Todd was born in Ann Arbor with a Michigan helmet in one hand and a mouse in the other. (Never you mind the logistics of this.) He grew, vertically anyway, and proceeded to spend over 16 years as a development editor for Pearson Education, publishing books, videos, and digital learning products under the Que and Sams Publishing imprints. Because that wasn't enough of a challenge, Todd has also been a 20-year part-time snob about video games, writing reviews, features, and more for multiple outlets.

  1. I dunno about this. I was hoping for just an HD remake, and I thought at least they’d combine BG 1 and 2 into one package . . .

  2. A combined package would have been a real plus, in my book, but not a deal-breaker. I’m more anxious to get a better view of what it really looks like compared to the original. The stuff we’re seeing so far isn’t very helpful.

    1. Beamdog’s Trent Oster tweeted this last week:

      “Cam has wood for #bgee on #iPhone. I think it is top of his list of post-ship features”

      So, yeah, not right away, but it will probably land there eventually. Hard to see how you’d make the UI work on a screen that small, but who knows?

      1. No idea how it’d work, but since I don’t have an iPad or Mac that’s the only way it’s getting played. Although I suppose I could grab it off GOG.
