Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition
rolled onto the App Store
today, with the remastered BioWare RPG now available on iPad for $9.99. Trent Oster, head of developer Beamdog, revealed
the current version is limited to iOS 6.0, although iOS 5.1 support is in the works.
Beamdog released Enhanced Edition
for PC last week
, with the Mac and Android versions still to come. While BG:EE
comes in $10 cheaper on iPad than on PC, certain new inclusions such as Neera
and Dorn II Karn
are only available as in-app purchases.
The game's multiplayer is in beta
at launch, but Beamdog said cross-platform multiplayer
is coming to the game, meaning iPad rangers will be able to fight alongside PC druids, Mac paladins, and Android thieves. Other combinations will also probably work.
