Baldur’s Gate and other classic RPGs are heading to consoles

Beamdog and Skybound Games have announced that a tidal wave of classic RPGs, including Baldur's Gate and its many sequels, will be hitting home consoles later this year.

The line up is extensive and full of all-time greats, or in other words, 'games that make you feel old.' I should trademark that. Anyway, the list is as follows: Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate II, Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment, and Neverwinter Nights. Not bad, eh?

'These games are iconic, including Baldur’s Gate, which has really set the standard for Dungeons & Dragons computer roleplaying games,' commented Ian Howe, CEO of Skybound Game. '

'We’re excited to bring Beamdog’s incredible slate to new platforms for both the dedicated fan and those who will soon discover these adventures for the first time. As longtime fans of Baldur’s Gate and Dungeons & Dragons it’s fantastic to partner with Beamdog as the newest member of the Skybound family.'

Beamdog previously spruced up Baldur's Gate for the PC back in 2012, where it was known as Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. The original version is an all-time classic Dungeons & Dragons-style RPG, arriving for home computers back in 1998 courtesy of BioWare and Black Isle Studios.

No release date has been set for the console versions of these games, but we'll keep you posted.
