Enhanced Dungeons to Delve Into

It’s great news for fans of classic CRPGs and turn-basedery-tabletopery as Skybound Games and Beamdog have announced four new Enhanced Edition Collector’s Packs with exclusive physical bonuses for many classic titles based on the granddaddy of tabletop RPGS: Dungeons & Dragons. Among the impressive line-up are Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear expansion, Baldur’s Gate II, Planescape: Torment, Icewind Dale and Neverwinter Nights later this year, and these Collector’s Packs are available to pre-order now for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

In a press release, Beamdog gave the following details about each pack:

Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Collector’s Pack ($99.99): Includes the original Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and its sequel, Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, with all DLC and restored quest content, as well as the Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear expansion, featuring new original content developed by Beamdog to bridge the two games. Physical items include a Bhaalspawn Medallion, Set of 3 Pins, Engraved Metal Dice Set, Parchment Style Map, Faux Leather Journal featuring the Baldur’s Gate emblem and exclusive art, and 3 Hero Cards of Minsc & Dynaheir, Wilson & Imoen, and Viconia.

Planescape: Torment / Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition Collector’s Pack ($99.99): Includes two must-play games and all their DLC in one package – the chilling Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition, plus its expansions, and the enhanced edition of 1999’s RPG of the Year, Planescape: Torment. Physical items include a Lady of Pain Medallion, Set of 2 Pins, Engraved Metal Dice Set, Parchment Style Map, Faux Leather Journal featuring the Planescape Torment/Icewind Dale emblems, 3 Hero Cards of Lady of Pain, Morte and the Nameless One, and a Morte Squishy Stress Ball.

Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition Collector’s Pack ($99.99): The 2002 Computer RPG of the Year and all its DLC deliver 10 standalone D&D-based adventures featuring co-op and online multiplayer. Physical items include a Neverwinter Nights “Eye” Medallion, Set of 2 Pins, Engraved Metal Dice Set, Parchment Style Map, Faux Leather Journal featuring the Neverwinter Nights Eye emblem, and 3 Hero Cards of Deekin, Aribeth and Valsharess.

Ultimate Enhanced Edition Collector’s Pack ($199.99): Includes Enhanced Editions of Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, Baldur’s Gate ll, Planescape: Torment, Icewind Dale, and Neverwinter Nights. Physical items include Engraved Metal Dice Set & Beholder Dice Tray, Morte Squishy Stress Ball, Parchment Style Map, Faux Leather Journal with Beholder emblem, Set of 2 Pins (Bhaalspawn and Lady of Pain), and 4 Lithograph Prints featuring fan-favorite characters from each game.

Beamdog has helpfully upgraded each title with native support for high-resolution widescreen displays, controls optimized for console controllers, new standalone content, new characters and classes, new voice sets, expanded character creation options, improved multiplayer functionality, redesigns of the UI and UX, bug fixes and balance changes – which should hopefully add up to a much improved experience that Elminister himself would approve of!

If you’re not quite so fabulously wealthy as to afford the hefty price tags of the versions listed above, Skybound Games will also release standalone boxed versions of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and Planescape: Torment/Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition at major retailers on Oct. 1, 2019, in North America and Oct. 4 in other territories. Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition will release Dec. 3, 2019 in North America and Dec 6 in other territories  for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. These editions are all priced at a more modest $49.99. More information about these standalone boxed editions can be found at their official site here.

Skybound also made a rather nifty video detailing the various special editions. Check it out below!

 

Jonathan is HeyPoorPlayer's token British person, so expect him to thoroughly exploit this by quoting Monty Python and saying things like "Pip, pip, toodly-whotsit!" for the delight of American readers. He likes artsy-fartsy games, RPGs and RPG-Hybrids (which means pretty much everything at this point). He used to write for Sumonix.com. He's also just realised how much fun it is to refer to himself in the third person like he's The Rock or something.
