Baldur's Gate is considered one of the best RPGs of all time. But, what would the game look like in 3D? A fanmade mod to Neverwinter Nights 2 attempts to answer that question, remaking the original game--and the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion--in full 3D.

Baldur's Gate 2 Enhanced already has 350,000 words of new content

Things have been awfully quiet from Beamdog after the release of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition late last year. We know they are working on DLC for the game, and also a Baldur's Gate 2: Enhanced, so we contacted the company to find out just what was going on in the land of Faerun.

"We're hard at work on BG2:EE and it is going well," Beamdog president Trent Oster told Shacknews. "Phil (our design lead) mentioned to me there is over 350,000 words of new content."

Baldur's Gate 3 almost made by Obsidian in 2008

Fallout creator Black Isle Studios was supposed to continue BioWare's RPG series Baldur's Gate a decade ago with a third core game, but that vanished soon after being announced. Years after the developer shut down, though, Baldur's Gate 3 almost happened again, at the studio founded by several Black Isle veterans, Obsidian Entertainment. Feargus Urquhart has revealed that it almost signed with Baldur's Gate owner Atari around 2008 to make a 'new' BG3, but the deal fell apart.
