Overhaul Games bringing Enhanced Edition of RPG to Apple's tablet computer this summer alongside PC version; no word on Baldur's Gate II coming to iTunes.
Gamers will be able to play the Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition on a train, in a car, or lying out on a hammock. Developer Overhaul Games has announced that the new version of the 1998 role-playing game will be available on iTunes for the iPad.
Due out this summer, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition runs on an updated version of the Infinity Engine and will include the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack. In addition, Overhaul Games is adding never-before-seen content to the game, including a "new adventure" and party member.
Overhaul did not mention whether Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition will also ship for the iPad, and as of press time, the developer had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment. That game is currently targeted to arrive sometime after the first drops this summer.
In addition to being released for the iPad, the enhanced editions of Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II will arrive for the PC. Writing on Twitter, Overhaul creative director Trent Oster said, "We're adding iPad as a platform, we're 100 percent supporting the PC."
