Holy Hell, This Guy Re-Created All Of Baldur's Gate In 3D

It took him seven years, but yesterday, game designer Drew Rechner finally released Baldur's Gate: Reloaded, a ridiculous mod that puts the entirety of BioWare's classic RPG — including the expansion, Tales of the Sword Coast — into Neverwinter Nights 2.

To play the mod, you'll need a copy of Neverwinter Nights 2 and its expansions (which you can get on GOG). Then you can download and install the mod for free right here.

I'm still kind of stunned that this exists, and I'm strongly considering re-buying NWN2 just to check it out. Rechner, who says the bulk of work on this mod was done by him and a programmer, Shallina, tells me this project helped him get into the game industry. He worked at TimeGate Studios (Section 8) until recently, and he was let go just before they shut down.

Baldur's Gate. In 3D! Amazing.

    Any word on when he's releasing it on iPad. :p

    Seriously though props to the guy. I would love to see Bioware do it again with the Origins engine.

    OH MY GOD!!
    I knew this was happening years ago, but had no idea it was still in the works.
    I was just thinking the other day that maybe I'll install NWN2 again, but this means that it's DESTINY!

    Wow... well done and bravo for taking this on, it must have been a HUGE undertaking. Cannot wait to give it a go tonight!

    I have a lot of love for Baldur's Gate.

    I have a lot of love of Neverwinter Nights 2.

    And now they have a beautiful child. That I am so downloading the second I get home.

    How good/close to the original is the mod? I haven't actually played Baldur's Gate (stop judging!)... would this be a reasonable version to play as my only experience of the title?

      Any version of Baldur's Gate is better than none, but I'd recommend playing the original if you have time and patience (it hasn't aged as well as some).

    Sigh... just when I vow to stop getting sexually aroused at the prospect of impressive gaming mods...

    I'm so having this
