There are tons of people that spent countless hours playing BioWare’s Baldur’s Gate back when they waere a little younger, so it goes without saying that a lot of people are pretty excited about a re-worked, enhanced edition landing on the iPad favorite tablet. Developer Beamdog did a nice job updating the classic role-playing game with a bunch of new characters, weapons, adventures and maps. Even more content is available via the in-app purchase method.

The game includes the original Baldur’s Gate and the Tales From the Sword Coast expansion pack, in addition to new content like a monk character named Rasaad yn Bashir, a new adventure called The Black Pits and more. Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition can be purchased immediately from the App Store provided you’re willing to plunk down ten bucks…

Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition also hit Windows PCs a few days ago. Versions for the Mac and Android platforms are in the works. More information is available at the official web site.

Features include:

  • 80 hours of Epic RPG adventure
  • over 40 classes and kits
  • over 100 spells
  • over 150 magical items
