Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pulled, BGII: EE On Hold

Published

 on

Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition has been removed from sale on both the Beamdog site and the Apple App Store. This action, according to a statement on the Baldur’s Gate website, was taken by Beamdog/Overhaul per a “publishing partner’s request as [the parties] attempt to resolve a number of contractual issues”.

As a result of this action, the game is no longer available to purchase through the Beamdog site, or the Apple App Store. Additionally, the upcoming patch that improves performance, updates the UI, adds German language support, and fixes and enhances over 135 gameplay issues is also on hold. This action also affects the planned Android version of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, which has been long-awaited since the announcement and release of the PC version.

Most notably, this action is also affecting the development and release of Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, which Overhaul have been working on since wrapping up development on BG: EE.

There is no date yet when Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition will be available again, with Beamdog stating that the game will only go back on sale once “all issues with our publishing partner have been resolved”. Thankfully, users who have already purchased Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition should still be able to dowload and play the game, according to the FAQ posted on the site.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
