iPad's Baldur's Gate Will Cost Less Than $10

If you purchase the upcoming Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition for iPad, you'll get access to multiplayer and 80+ hours of content for less than a faded green portrait of Alexander Hamilton.

According to a recent interview with Kotaku, Beamdog will sell the iPad version of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition for less than $10, calling any price higher than that just "crazy." But just because the company has cut the game's retail cost, that doesn't mean it's cutting content.

"Baldur's Gate is a pretty big game and we're not cutting it down to size," said Cameron Tofer, the Beamdog's chief operating officer. "There's a boatload of content there, 80+ hours. But past ten dollars doesn't make sense."

The initial Baldur's Gate iPad release will include all of the enhanced Baldur's Gate, its Tales of the Sword Coast expansion, and whatever additional content Beamdog has been cooking up. A similarly retooled version of the game's sequel, Shadows of Amn will be released sometime after the first. Tofer has also confirmed that the iPad edition of BG:EE will support multiplayer, though details of its specific implementation have yet to be announced.

Final pricing for both the iPad and PC edition, as well as what we can expect from the game's multiplayer should be announced in the near(ish) future, as Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is scheduled to arrive for iOS and Steam this summer.

Now that's walking around money!

*Clap clap clap* That's a good price for Baldur's Gate. Just stick around the GOG price and you're playing it smart.

Not just that, but selling both versions for the same price. Ubisoft did the stupid thing of trying to sell that Dungeon game for 40 dollars on the Vita when it was originally an App game for 1 dollar.

Good price for it really. Though I've only just recently bought both Baldur's Gate games off GOG.com so I doubt I will be buying the Enhanced Edition. Although it would be nice if this sets a pattern and we will see more enhanced editions of other classic games.

I hope they sell a multiple copy version, like that Terraria 4 pack on Steam, seriously I will want to play this with at least 4 people, but I know no one that will play it unless I buy it for them.

You know I wasnt sure if I was going to buy this before but now that I know its out on the ipad its a definite buy for me.

Oh my god I can't wait to actually get this now, my PC is too banged up to even use any game at all so I'm happy this is coming to iPad as I've always wanted to play all of these. And I can do it wherever I want XD

If BGEE does well(and BG2EE of course), Trent Oster said he wants to enhance Planescape: Torment next.

This is an amazing deal.

I recently found out that the App Store (for laptops) version of Neverwinter Nights 2 is 99 cents. It isn't a great game, but its nice to see companies not being outrageous for older and maybe less popular gamer that are just getting switched over.

Saw that there's a Steam version, praised the dark gods I don't have to buy an iPad to get this game.

Also, ten bucks for Baldur's Gate? Sweet!

I know whats going on my iPad soon.

why are you all excited.. the isometric complicated RPG's are dead remember

i so cant wait for this :D

I hope for the day when Nintendo will realize that the 3DS is the perfect vehicle in which to feed the population RPGs such as this and brings them back into the mainstream.
