Baldur's Gate II Enhanced Edition in November

The Baldur's Gate II website is now accepting pre-purchases of Baldur's Gate II Enhanced Edition, and Overhaul Games announces the spiffed-up version of the RPG sequel is due on November 15th, suggesting the project's "legal hell" may now be all cleared up (thanks nin). Here's word:

Lead your party of skilled adventurers into intense, tactical battles. Lure your enemies into deadly traps, call down magical meteors to smash them, and stop time itself to win the day. A diverse array of powers and abilities let you transform into a being of pure elemental force, or wield the might of the heavens with the Holy Avenger.

Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition combines both Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal. Bundled with the game on PC and Mac, and available as DLC on iPad and Android, are four diverse new characters, each with their own epic quest. Venture to the distant sands of Zakhara with your new companions, or lead them in a raid upon the home of the gods.

Ps.: NWN is still nice to play even now.... and so is BG2. Although I wouldn't play BG2 without some "ease of use" mods anymore... like removing locked chests and traps, everything Identified, stackable stuff... more carry weight, etc.
Ahh we're spoiled now. Makes me wonder how PE or PS:N are going to fair in some peoples minds if they have those in them.

Heh yeah After 9 complete playthroughs, 3 heavily modded, there is not much allure to playing Native again, if I'd play BG2 it'd be for the combat and companion reasons.

I don't mind it being there on the first few playthroughs. and it remains to be seen whether PE is something that is worth playing through more than once.

By the way, I remove traps and locks because these are essentially just free XP for no challenge. I don't walk into rooms like they show in that trailer, always stealthed rogue first ,p Gets boring after the 9th time... also just like in NWN1 there is no way to boost your disarm trap roll with an item.... and that is one of these things I don't like either. It to some extend limits your character development
