So folks it is coming!

The game Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is a remake of the original and it's expansion Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast. The game is currently out for Windows and iOS, and will now be out for Linux too. We could be in for a bit of a wait though, so stay tuned and we will keep you posted.

The new edition has new content though so it won't be the same as running the original on the open source engine.
