Overhaul Games -- the studio promising a revamp of the classic BioWare RPG Baldur's Gate -- today announced that thier Enhanced Edition will touch down on PC on September 18th, with Mac and iPad versions to follow and an Android version also expected at a later date.

At US$19.99 the price seems a bit high for a makeover on a thirteen year old game, but Overhaul are promising quite a bit more than just high-res textures and widescreens support here, boasting over 400 improvements that span from interface changes, multiplayer and online matchmaking features, new cinematics and hours of completely new content.

Three new characters, a monk, a mage and an orc each promise four hours of extra game time and the new Black Pits questline supposedly brings another six hours.

You can explore all of these items in detail over at the official website, and save a not entirely generous US$2 by pre-ordering.

Multiplayer? Online matchmaking? WTF why?

Other than that, looking forward to it. The Baldur's Gate series is one of my all time favorite games, up there with Fallout 1&2.

Yeah, looking forward to this as well. I hope they go on to do others in the series as well like Planescape Torment/Icewind Dale/BG 2.

O god no.

A big part of Baldur's Gate series was the beautifully hand painted and rendered backgrounds. The Dragon Age engine would destroy that art, also an RPG really needs 3rd person perspective, as the game is about the characters not you.

I for one, welcome the changes they bring. The multiplayer part can be dumped for all I care, it was never a multiplayer game.
