It will officially release on April 11th, so it's coming really damn soon. Far closer to release than I thought it would be.

They are listing Linux right away everywhere platforms are mentioned, so it looks to be a day one release for sure. You can pre-order it now, but as always I suggest waiting until release to be sure.

Key updates
  • Enhanced Planescape: Chris Avellone, Lead Designer on Planescape Torment, has partnered with Beamdog to curate gameplay updates, bug fixes, and enhancements to best capture his original vision for the game.
  • Remastered Music: The full Planescape: Torment soundtrack has been remastered in-game to add more depth to Sigil and the multiverse.
  • 4K Interface: Sigil has never looked this good! The interface of Planescape: Torment has been rebuilt in high definition with tons of new convenience features.
  • A Planescape For Today: The Enhanced Edition includes modern features such as tab highlighting, area zooming, combat log, quickloot, and more!


How excited are you for this? I never played the original, so I'm excited to give it a try. It's estimated to be around 50+ hours long so I might need a few late nights.

It really is incredible that Linux gamers can enjoy updated classics like this, we certainly aren't short on fantastic games now. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Finally!! But if it is like the other "enhanced" editions, it will be released with plenty of bugs, and it wil be worth wainting till they get it all sorted out.

Bit since I've never finished the original, and since it is not 100% in gemRB, this is one I'll get for sure! Also I plan to play this one fully before Torment: Numerara

Story is miles better than the fairly mundane sword and sorcery tale of BG. It's all very depressing, mind. Highly recommended.

I'll play it again!

I am excited for this. Been waiting for this before grabbing the new torment game.

The technical improvements are welcome, but I hope their writing has improved since they gave the BG games the "Enhanced Edition" treatment.

Hopefully they didn't add any writing at all, even with Chris Avellone's help. Beamdog couldn't match the level of writing in BG and the writing in Planescape: Torment is an order of magnitude greater, any story bits Beamdog themselves would add would massively stand out from the rest of the narrative.

If you are on the Beamdog forum, please chime in, and ask developers to make sure it's 64-bit this time.

I will grab it on mobile first tho.

I already own the original planescape torment, but never played it. I guess the enhanced edition will make it more appealing.

Great news! Sadly my budget does not allow me to buy anything right now, but I will make sure to buy this one later. I am eager to play it for the first time. See if it is all that....
