New ports of the game, previously only available for PlayStation 2 and Xbox, are coming, allowing a much larger player base to try out Black Isle Studios’ creation.
Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance II, released on January 20, 2004, will receive new ports, Black Isle Studios and Interplay announced. Here’s its overview: “Based in and around the city of Baldur’s Gate, the game features five playable characters and classes and spans dozens of locations. Featuring the ability to create custom weapons and armour, players can improve items by using runestones and gems while playing through the game’s four difficulty levels; “Easy,” “Normal,” “Hard”, and “Extreme.”
Whether choosing the barbarian, monk, necromancer, rogue or cleric, players will have to actively fight through hordes of monsters ranging from Hobgoblins, Ghouls, Golems and dreaded Dragons while dodging attacks and evading deadly traps. All versions of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance II support local co-op play, while the Steam version will support Remote Play for a long-distance co-op experience. Fully verified on Steamdeck, now’s the perfect time to grab an ally or brave Baldur’s Gate on the move and play the sequel that defined a generation.
Hack your way or cast powerful spells through over 80 dangerous levels with hidden areas, secret characters, and hundreds of items to discover, customize, and use. Forge unique magical weapons and armour to maximize the damage you inflict in battle. Conquer hordes of beasts and armies of Hobgoblins, Ghouls, Golems and dreaded Dragons. [It has] compelling single or two-player cooperative modes of play; fully voice-acted by an all-star cast and two secret characters; Drizzt Do’Urden and Artemis Entreri.”
Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance II will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch sometime this summer. Supported platforms will allow it to run in 4K resolution, including PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and possibly PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. That’s not a bad idea among re-releases.
