Back in July, Overhaul Games announced that they would be reviving the RPG classic Baldur's Gate for the PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices. Since then, all has been quite on that front. But today, the company released the first gameplay trailer, which gives a nice look into what players can expect from this rehashed title.

It's worth noting that this video is from the PC version of the game, but since it's running on the Infinity Engine, the mobile version should look nearly identical.

The PC, Mac, and iOS release is slated for November 28th, but unfortunately, the Android variant is listed as coming "soon" after that. As always, we'll keep you posted as to when that actually happens.

EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- Developer Overhaul Games announces that pre-loading has begun for Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition on the PC in preparation for release on November 28th.

The original Baldur’s Gate launched in 1998. With over 50 hours of epic gameplay, it quickly became the most celebrated Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game series at that time.

On November 28th of 2012, Overhaul Games revives this classic game.

In addition to enhancing graphics and gameplay, Overhaul has added new allies to join your party, complete with unique quests. And for the ultimate test of tactical skills, players can enter

the Black Pits for an arena challenge. Overhaul Games has also given PC, Mac, iPad, and Android tablet players the ability to join together in cooperative multiplayer.

Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for PC is available exclusively through Beamdog for $19.99. Pre-purchasing allows players to pre-load the game data and grants them a special badge on the BaldursGate.com forums. 

The game can be pre-loaded through either the Beamdog client or a stand-alone installer. Pre-loading the game allows players to access Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition immediately after its release on November 28th.

    Amazon better have it for my kindle Fire. (hush all you...I already had it rooted with CM10, but it killed the battery....)

    Hmm, really tempting, I kinda loved that game back in the day. I'm not sure I could spend $20 for a game that's fueled mostly by nostalgia (for me).

    Would absolutely love this if it was out for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with Stylus support. I'd buy it in a heart beat.

    You can play Baldur's Gate I & II with GemRB already. The performance is great but the UI is a problem. These games were designed around a keyboard+mouse, and they don't work so well on a touchscreen. I'm curious to see how they've solved that.
