I am not going to explain what is Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, it's position on RPG's history goes without saying. It was announced as coming to the iPad back in March. Now the creator has finally reveals a bunch of new information regarding the highly anticipated release.
Some valuable information notes by Toucharcade:
"First up is a brand new adventure called The Black Pits which will let you create a party of up to 6 characters and fight your way through 15 different arena-style battles. There will be unique battle types and a host of new characters to encounter, and the developer pegs The Black Pits as clocking in at about 6 additional hours of playtime.
Three brand new characters will also be available in Baldur’s Gate: EE. Two of those characters, the Monk Rasaad yn Bashir and the half-elf Wild Mage Neera, will each come equipped with a new adventure to complete and a new area to explore. The third new character, the Blackguard Dorn Il-Khan, will come with the Blackguard kit for creating your own champion of evil.
The last bit of news covers all of the enhancements that qualify the new release as “Enhanced Edition.” These include improved multiplayer with matchmaking and cross-platform play, a slick new interface with special additions for touchscreen devices, brand new hand-painted cinematic cutscenes, features from Baldur’s Gate 2 like class kits and previously unavailable sub-races and classes, and more than 400 general performance and usability improvements over the original game.
And apparently cross-platform saving isn’t something that will ship with Baldur’s Gate: EE but it’s in the works and they hope to implement it sometime down the road. Also, more new characters and adventures are planned as future updates to support the game post-release."
At last, the most key thing, the release date: if you’re on a Windows PC then you can nab it on September 18th, and it’s available for pre-order right now. iPad and Mac versions are slated as just “September” with no specific date, but should hopefully be right around the same time as the Windows launch. There is an Android version coming too, but its release is simply TBA.
