Trent Oster has revealed some new, interesting information about the Enhanced Edition of Baldur’s Gate. Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition will support co-op multiplayer and will work across all platforms. This basically means that iPad can play with Android, Mac and PC. Moreover, Overhaul Games is still working on implementing the ability to use the game’s saves to multiple platforms.
Furthermore, Oster revealed that the pre-load phase of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition will be initiated in late August. Players will be able to download most of the game’s content and then, on launch day, Overhaul Games will release a small update that will most probably unlock the game.
Last but not least, Overhaul Games’ next title will be the Enhanced Edition of Baldur’s Gate 2. Although Oster did not reveal any possible release date, he said that this whole process would be easier thanks to all the preceding work on Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition.
Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition will feature Baldur’s Gate + Tales of the Sword Coast + Black Pits + Rassad + Dorn + Neera on PC\Mac, whereas Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition will feature BG2+Throne of Bhall + new stuff from Overhaul Games.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
