The 2012 holiday season has thus far been packed with high profile games. Black Ops II. Assassin’s Creed III. Halo 4. PlayStation All-Stars. The Wii U.
But for many gamers, particularly of the old school persuasion, these mainstream blockbusters pale in comparison to today’s PC release of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, a remastered re-release of one of gaming’s all-time great RPGs. You can go download it right now from Beamdog for $19.99!
In addition to the new characters and locations, an upgraded version of the Infinity Engine, and numerous interface and core game improvements, the Enhanced Edition also features updated cinematics that have been redone with hand painted animations. If you haven’t downloaded the game yet, click play below to see the new style on display in the game’s opening intro sequence. (And here’s the original version for comparison.)
