If you’re a fan of Dungeons & Dragons, you are probably familiar with the fact that over the years, several games based on D&D have been made. Baldur’s Gate is one of those games that has held a special place in many hearts of gamers, and the good news is that it looks like the series and other D&D titles will be making its way onto consoles.
This was announced by Skybound Games and Beamdog where titles such as Baldur’s Gate, the Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear expansion, Baldur’s Gate II, Planescape: Torment, Icewind Dale and Neverwinter Nights have been announced for the PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch.
Previously, some of these titles were remastered for the PC and mobile, but it was largely left out of consoles, at least until now. According to Trent Oster, Beamdog CEO, “It’s been nearly two decades since Baldur’s Gate was born from a D&D campaign between me and the game’s co-creators. The longevity of this series and the games that followed has been both humbling and rewarding. Our team is thrilled to continue that tradition by finally making this wealth of amazing storytelling and gameplay available to everyone on modern consoles.”
The games are currently set for a release this coming fall and there will also be both physical and digital editions available. In the meantime, it has been suggested that Larian could be working on a Baldur’s Gate 3.
