Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance Remaster Trailer and Release [UPDATED]

Interplay may be preparing to release a remaster of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance. This is indicated by changes in the PlayStation Network database and materials published by Black Isle.

Update:

The reports we informed you about earlier today have been confirmed - Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance is indeed coming out, what's more, it's coming out tomorrow. The title will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch, with PC and mobile devices to follow later in 2021. The refreshed version of the classic RPG will cost around $30. Below you can see the game's trailer.

Original message:

Everything seems to indicate that a refreshed version of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, the excellent console action RPG from 2001, is being prepared. It's been noted that the game has been added to the database of the US version of the PlayStation Store service, where it bears the code CUSA27997.

This matches the fact that Black Isle's Twitter profile has been publishing footage of the classic for the past few weeks. It is worth noting especially one of such posts, showing the inventory menu. The gamepad button icons shown are those of the Xbox One controller, not the first Xbox on which Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance was released. This practically confirms that a remaster is in the works.

With this information, we can assume that the refreshed version of the game will be available to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners, as well as, thanks to backward compatibility, next-gen console owners. However, we hope that the remaster will also make its way to PC. Until now, PC gamers have been unable to check out this production. CD Projekt was supposed to develop a PC port, but before that happened the publisher, Interplay, went bankrupt. The Polish company decided to use the recruited developers to create their own RPG, which eventually led to the creation of the first Witcher.

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance was released in 2001 for the PlayStation 2. Even with the graphics upgrade, it won't be a very demanding game, so we wouldn't be surprised to see the remaster come to Nintendo Switch as well.

We also hope that it won't end with the first part and we'll also be able to play the sequel, 2004's Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance 2.
