A whole slew of classic action RPGs are coming to consoles in the near future. Anyway, the list is as follows: Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate II, Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment, and Neverwinter Nights. Six of Beamdog's fan-favorite games will be released on console platforms for the first time ever via Skybound all as Enhanced Editions sold at retail stores and online (www.Skybound.com). A selection of the titles will be playable at the Skybound Games booth at PAX East in Boston which will be running from March 28-31, 2019. The games were enhanced by Beamdog Software in the early part of this decade, and the console versions will be published by Skybound Games who also picked up publishing rights for the final season of The Walking Dead.

"We are ecstatic to partner with Skybound Games to bring these great classics to new platforms", said Trent Oster, Beamdog CEO. Today, Baldur's Gate is a series of role-playing games set in the Dungeons & Dragons universe.

More details will be revealed in the coming months, including more information about the physical release.

This year, you can expect Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2, Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment, and Neverwinter Nights to arrive on PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One. Most were unavailable due to Interplay's decline, advancements in PC hardware, as well as the lack of digital distribution for them until GOG secured them in 2008.
