Revisit RPG history in Bioware classic Baldur's Gate II, out now on iPad

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition appeared iPad just over a year ago. A remake of Bioware's point-and-click RPG classic, the Overhaul Games-developed port was a collector's dream, cramming in all of the game's original expansions, and running on an improved version of the Infinity Engine.

Now, the team has brought the Baldur's Gate II, a game widely regarded as one of the best RPGs of its time, to Apple tablets.

Much like the iOS port of its predecessor, Baldur's Gate II will take advantage of an improved graphics engine, and contain all of the game's expansion packs. These include Throne of Bahaal and Fist of the Fallen, two self-contained adventures that will add hours of content to the core Shadows of Amn campaign.

In addition to these perks, the iPad update will offer widescreen visuals, and remastered artwork pulled from original renders.

Interestingly, the dev team has also reworked the touchscreen interface. This is promising news, as the iffy control system was our main gripe with Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition.

Luckily, you won't have to go on an epic quest or kill a single barbarian to get your hands on Baldur's Gate II. However, you will have to part with £10.49 / $14.99.
