Skybound Games has announced a new deal with publisher Beamdog to bring some classic PC roleplaying games to consoles for the first time. Some of these titles were originally published by BioWare for PC. This partnership will thus provide more exposure to the enhanced versions of Dungeons & Dragons video games on an entirely different platform.
The classic roleplaying games that will be brought to consoles under this partnership include Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate ll, Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment, and Neverwinter Nights. These titles will be released for console platforms later this year. Skybound and Beamdog are mum on some of the more important details. They have not yet provided concrete release dates for any of the titles mentioned above and haven’t even confirmed which consoles will get them.
Since they plan on releasing the games over the course of this year, we should get more information about this in the coming months. These games are going to be released in both digital and physical formats. Skybound Games reiterates in its press release that it will provide more information about the upcoming console releases, particularly specific platforms and box contents, in the next few months.
A selection of Beamdog’s games will be displayed at the Skybound Games booth at PAX East in Boston from March 28th to March 31st.
