More On: Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance was originally released in 2001, and went on to win role playing game of the year from the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences. Out of nowhere the game is getting a 4K re-release tomorrow, May 7. You’ll be able to digitally pick up the game for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

Some of the key features include:

  • 4K scaling on the Xbox or PS4 Pro.
  • Three race and class combinations. Play as a dwarven fighter (Kromlech), a human archer (Vahn) or an elven sorceress (Adrianna).
  • 11 vividly rendered spells, including Magic Missile, Otuluk’s Icy Sphere, and Mordenkainen’s Sword.
  • More than 40 different types of monsters and boss villains.
  • Over 25 active and passive skills to buff your adventurer’s ability to deal and take damage.
  • Varied environments, from the sewers beneath the city of Baldur’s Gate, to the Sunset Mountains, to the Marshes of Chelimber.
  • Four difficulty levels to challenge even the hardiest adventurer; "Easy", "Normal", "Hard" and "Extreme".
  • Fully voice-acted by an all-star cast.
  • Local co-op support!

Perhaps this can be seen as a way to help promote the release of the new title Dungeons & Dragons Dark Alliance coming out June 22, if that’s the case consider my beak officially wet.
