Baldur's Gate iPad Will Support Multiplayer

The enhanced iPad version of classic role-playing game Baldur's Gate, slated for release in coming months, won't cost you more than $US10. Also, it will support multiplayer.

An enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn is in the works for iPad later this year as well.

This is all according to Cameron Tofer, COO of developer Beamdog, who told me today in a phone interview that it would be "crazy" to charge more than $US10 for the 1998 PC game.

"Baldurs Gate is a pretty big game and we're not cutting it down to size," Tofer said. "There's a boatload of content there, 80+ hours. But past 10 dollars doesn't make sense."

We'll have more on the future of Baldur's Gate, including details on how the upcoming port will take advantage of the iPad's touchscreen interface, tomorrow morning.

    I remember playing BG2 Muiltiplayer on I believe it was GameSpy back than? all it was people wanting to kill me or rush through the game without reading any dialogue or scrummaging around for items.

    Suffice to say the Multiplayer element doesn't have any pull for me and the PVP in the game was pretty bland.

      Wait did Baldur's Gate 2 even have PVP I can't remember -.-

        Pretty sure it did not..

          I seem to recall there was a popular mod, but I never played it, so don't quote me on that.

    While I am glad for Ipad users I would much rather have some more pc info/screens.

    Any news for android tablets?

    I'm confused, is there going to be a PC enhanced edition? or is it all for the iPad?

      Yeah a pc version was the first that was announced but the Ipad version is the first to have screens. The main guy on the team also tweeted they would love to do Planescape Torment :D

        ......Planescape: Torment............jjjjiiiizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Neat hope save files are saved via cloud. Then I can seamlessly play on my pc and my mums iPad.

    What are the odds this costs more for PC?

    Are we talking online multiplayer, local bluetooth multiplayer or both?

    There is an enhanced version for PC coming. This is a port of BG1 for iPad and it's awesome, its the perfect platform.

    I'm really looking forward to playing this on the Ipad, the touch interface should work perfectly with this genre.
