Back in early December I talked with Ossian Studios head Alan Miranda about the release of The Shining Sun, and my single concern was that Baldur’s Gate II Enhanced Edition was due for release just before Christmas. That didn’t happen, and TSS enjoyed time in the spotlight … but now the ultimate classic RPG has arrived on the iPad!
While my purpose here is to announce that the game is available, there most certainly IS a review coming! The problem is that on average it takes me about 120 hours to complete a playthrough of Baldur’s Gate II Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal, and the new material is supposed to add several hours to the total!
If you want detailed descriptions, head to the official site or iTunes. Here is the basic description:
Kidnapped. Imprisoned. Tortured. The wizard Irenicus holds you captive in his stronghold, attempting to strip you of the powers that are your birthright.
Can you resist the evil within you, forge a legend of heroic proportions, and ultimately destroy the dark essence that haunts your dreams? Or will you embrace your monstrous nature, carve a swath of destruction across the realms, and ascend to godhood as the new Lord of Murder?
Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition includes the original Shadows of Amn campaign, as well as the Throne of Bhaal, Fist of the Fallen, Unbound, A Shadow’s Life, In Defense of the Wild, and The Black Pits II expansions. It also includes all improvements featured in the Mac & PC releases.
Baldur’s Gate II Enhanced Edition for iPad sells for $14.99 on the iTunes App Store! Grab it now!
