Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition OS X Plans & Cross-Platform Gaming

The Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Website announces Overhaul Games' upcoming Baldur’s Gate overhauls will be coming to OS X this summer (thanks The Patches Scrolls). They say the Mac version will "include a variety of Mac OS X specific features, including widescreen and iCloud support." No, we didn't know widescreen support was an OS X specific feature either. Technically a PC edition of the game has not been announced, but it is mentioned in this tweet from Trent Oster revealing they plan to support cross-platform multiplayer play:

Yes, it will be compatible multi-player cross-platform. We had a Mac, iPad and PC joined into a game together.

  • Upgraded sound


  • How do you upgrade perfection?
    This is beamdog. See MDK HD for examples of what they've done in an attempt to get market share for their digital distribution platform.

    So think of the minimum that can be done to get each of those bullet points and you probably won't be far from what happens.

    For instance, they can claim "better sound" if they enable the engine to output 48khz sound, even if the original sound was recorded at 44khz, if the sound is "upscaled." In other words, the original sound could be the same, it could just be saved at a higher rate. Like saving a 320x240 picture as a 640x480 picture, it doesn't increase the detail, it just takes up more space.
