Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition, the sequel to the original Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition for iOS released in late 2012, can now be downloaded from the App Store.

The game, which has been made available thanks to a collaboration between Beamdog, and Atari, is a remake of Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and the following expansion packs: Throne of Bhaal, Fist of the Fallen, Unbound, A Shadow's Life, In Defense of the Wild, The Black Pits II: Gladiators of Thay, and Gallery of Heroes II.

"He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster… When you gaze long into the abyss, the abyss also gazes into you…"

Kidnapped. Imprisoned. Tortured. The wizard Irenicus holds you captive in his stronghold, attempting to strip you of the powers that are your birthright.

Can you resist the evil within you, forge a legend of heroic proportions, and ultimately destroy the dark essence that haunts your dreams? Or will you embrace your monstrous nature, carve a swath of destruction across the realms, and ascend to godhood as the new Lord of Murder?

As with the original Baldur's Gate for iOS, Baldur's Gate II includes multiplayer functionality, remastered artwork, and interface improvements. Baldur's Gate II has also been available from the Mac App Store since November.

Baldur's Gate II can be downloaded from the App Store for $14.99. [Direct Link]

Really $14.99 for an iPad game? When are these developers going to learn! Why can't I just get the game for free and then be asked to purchase in game items to unlock spells or do any thing of value inside the game? I would much rather pay several hundred dollars over the next several months then pay this outrages price of $14.99 for a stinking iPad game!

After the first sentence, I was all set to write an annoyed response to your post, glad I read on. :)

As weird as it sounds, I'm glad this game costs so much, I hope it sells well. I'd love to see bigger, more in-depth games like this. And the only way it'll happen is if more people are willing to spend a bit more than $1 / €1 for a game.

Sarcasm Fail.

Now I just have to figure out where the fail occurred, the writing or the reading? :-) Since I got it, I'm inclined to chalk this one up to reader fail :-)

While I can easily see the sarcasm in your comment, the real problem is, there are way too many people that actually do think this way which is why IAP is endemic in mobile gaming these days. For a game like this with no IAP $14.99 is a great price.

As someone who is heavily addicted to keyboard shortcuts, I can't say that I'm excited to buy this. That being said, I will certainly get the Mac version when I have more time to really "get into" it.

Also, I don't have $14.99.

...Also, I don't have an iPad...
yet...

As someone who played the BG series way back when they first arrived on the PC, I thought the iPad version was set up quite nicely, and played almost as well on a touchscreen as they did with a mouse and keyboard. Doubly so with the recent patch.

If you ever get an iPad, and start feeling nostalgic, I'd say it's worth considering.
