[Update: They're back] Baldur's Gate II and Icewind Dale should return to Play Store following user data policy update

Video game developer and publisher Beamdog has had two of its apps pulled from the Google Play Store. The Android versions of Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition and Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition have been missing from the store for two weeks, but the company hopes to get them back online soon. At the center of the issue is a new user data policy rule for publishers.

Beamdog is releasing 'Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear' for Android on March 8th as a 30-hour standalone adventure

Beamdog's Baldur's Gate is a much-beloved CRPG classic that was ported over to Android as an enhanced edition fit for HD screens back in 2014. In 2016 an all-new expansion was released for PC. It is called Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear. Surprisingly an official tweet from the developer states that this expansion is coming to Android as a 30-hour standalone release on March 8th, which is excitingly only 3 days away.

Baldur's Gate II Enhanced Edition Published On The Play Store: $10 Gets You Dungeon Crawling For Christmas

Beamdog has already made admirable Android ports of the original Baldur's Gate RPG and its side-sequel Icewind Dale. Now you can get Baldur's Gate II, the continuation of the original that was first published way back in 2000 by none other than Bioware. Like the previous D&D RPGs, Baldur's Gate II costs ten dollars on the Play Store, which gets you the original game and all its expansion scenarios. The game is not restricted to tablets, though it will certainly be better played on one.

The core of BGII is Shadow Amn, which directly follows the story events of the original game.

Beamdog Is Bringing The Classic PC RPG Icewind Dale To Android In An Enhanced Edition

Remember when developer Beamdog re-released the fan-favorite Dungeons and Dragons PC game Baldur's Gate on Android? Series devotees are getting another go-round the dungeon, because the sequel campaign Icewind Dale is getting the same Enhanced Edition re-release treatment. Rights-holder Wizards of the Coast announced the upcoming game for Android phones and tablets, as well as iOS, PC, and Mac, at the Penny Arcade Expo this weekend.

The decision to release another Enhanced Edition for Android is a bit unexpected. Despite the popularity of the original, the Google Play release of Baldur's Gate has less than 50,000 downloads. That might have something to do with the fact that the developers released it six months after the iOS version (a surprising amount of Android phone users also have iPads).

One of the most iconic games of the late 90s has finally come to Android. Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition re-launched on iOS a few months ago, but it was a rocky ride as licensing issues nearly killed the game.

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Removed From The iOS App Store, Android Version On Indefinite Hold

There's bad news for those of you who were hoping to play Bioware's classic PC dungeon crawler Baldur's Gate on your tablets. The Enhanced Edition has been removed from Apple's iOS App Store, making new purchases impossible. That doesn't mean a lot for Android gamers, but the reasons behind this move have implications for the Android launch. According to the official game website, the publisher insisted that the game be pulled based on a "contractual issue." Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition for Android is now on hold.


Mobile developer Beamdog doesn't have much in the way of details, and there is no timeframe for when the issue might be resolved.

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Gameplay Trailer Released, Coming To Android Sometime After November 28th

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.
