Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and more cult classics are coming to consoles

Baldur's Gate is an incredibly important role-playing game which was developed by BioWare in 1998. The sequels not only garnered further critical acclaim, but they also managed to transform the series into a cult classic venerated by millions of gamers. Today, Baldur's Gate is a series of role-playing games set in the Dungeons & Dragons universe. Unfortunately, these titles are only available on PC, but that's about to change very soon.

According to a report by Engadget, developers and publishers Beamdog and Skybound Games just announced that they're bringing numerous Dungeons & Dragons games to consoles this year. You can read an excerpt from the article below.

The selection of titles that will be making the move to console includes several originally published by BioWare. Games from the Baldur's Gate series including Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate ll, and Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear will all come to consoles. Neverwinter Nights will also make the jump. Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment... will arrive on a new platform this year.

Aside from announcing that the games would be coming to consoles in 2019, no official release window was provided. They'll just drop as 2019 goes along. Beamdog and Skybound added that the titles would be available in both digital and physical formats. However, usually the Xbox One doesn't get physical editions of smaller experiences so it's unclear if we'll see discs on the platform.

It's great to see that these cult classics are coming to consoles. Hopefully everyone who hasn't experienced them will give them a go because they're absolutely phenomenal even to this day!

  • The enhanced version of Baldur's gate was low effort and buggy and siege of dragonspear was just awful , uninspired with horrible writing while Planescape torment was just a few mods that everyone could find for free . I have no faith in Beamdog .
  • Sweet I almost bought them on steam the other day BD and NWN...
