If consoles are your gaming preference, there are plenty of great PC titles you’ve likely missed out on. In fact, some of the most beloved RPGs (including Bioware’s first few games) have never made the jump to consoles. Of course, decades later, it seems like the chance for that to happen is gone…Thankfully, that’s not the case!

Today, Beamdog (who has been releasing solid remastered versions of these older games) announced a new partnership with Skybound games to bring several classic D&D RPGs to consoles in 2019: 

Baldur’s Gate

Baldur’s Gate ll

Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear

Icewind Dale

Planescape: Torment

Neverwinter Nights

While there still aren’t any specific release details available at the moment, it’s still something retrogaming fans are sure to be excited about. Which are these are you looking forward to playing most on your console? 

Beamdog is known for bringing enhanced versions of Dungeons & Dragons videogames to fans both new and old on the PC platform, including the critically acclaimed Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter Nights and Planescape: Torment. Six of Beamdog’s fan-favorite games will be released on console platforms for the first time ever via Skybound, all as Enhanced Editions sold at retail stores and online (www.Skybound.com). These upcoming releases will allow RPG fans the opportunity to experience epic Dungeons & Dragons adventures in a whole new way.

“These games are iconic, including Baldur’s Gate, which has really set the standard for Dungeons & Dragons computer roleplaying games,” said Skybound Games CEO Ian Howe. “We’re excited to bring Beamdog’s incredible slate to new platforms for both the dedicated fan and those who will soon discover these adventures for the first time. As longtime fans of Baldur’s Gate and Dungeons & Dragons, it’s fantastic to partner with Beamdog as the newest member of the Skybound family.”

“We are ecstatic to partner with Skybound Games to bring these great classics to new platforms,” said Trent Oster, Beamdog CEO. “Skybound’s accomplishments are amazing and they have a demonstrated love and respect for creators. We’re thrilled to find ourselves working with such a talented group.”
