Baldur's Gate, Planescape: Torment, and more cult classics land on Xbox One

What you need to know

  • Baldur's Gate and other games like Planescape: Torment are considered cult classics.
  • The Enhanced Editions are now available on Xbox One.
  • You can purchase the Baldur's Gate and Planescape: Torment bundles for $50 each.
  • You can head over to the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab) to do so.

Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate II, Planescape: Torment, and Icewind Dale are cult classics that inspired a lot of modern role-playing games. They're available on a number of devices like Android and iOS, but if you wanted to play them on Xbox One, you were out of luck. However, that changed today.

Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate II, Planescape: Torment, and Icewind Dale are now available on the console. Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II are bundled together for $50, and Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale also cost $50. You'll have to buy all four games through two separate transactions.

In my opinion, the price for these titles is quite high because they don't feature Xbox One X enhancements and don't look that great on modern displays. On iOS, they're around the $10 mark. It's unclear why the team is charging so much for the console ports when it isn't even the top-of-the-line edition.

  • I love these games, but there's no way I'm paying those prices for them.
  • I am in the same camp , no Xbox one X love then no buy. It is just crazy Microsoft is not fully supporting Xbox one X especially with Scarlet not much more than a year away. I thought they would want people to see Xbox in the best light possible. They now should be insistent on support for Xbox one x for all titles.
