Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition: Everything We Know @ PCGamesN

by Myrthos, 2012-10-02 15:43:13

PCGamesN has an overview of everything they know about Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition.

If there’s one thing that won’t be Enhanced, it’s the background art

While character models are already improved by the shift to the Throne of Bhaal engine, the game’s famously ‘hand-painted’ environments - actually hand-rendered, and much better looking in the sequel - will remain much the same. Source files were stored on a separate drive during original development and, according to Oster, the only art assets left from the Baldur’s Gate series are a handful of 3D files for some of Throne of Bhaal’s monsters.

On a less wistful note, all of the original’s cinematics have been replaced with animated cinematics, directed by Overhaul’s Nat Jones. What’s more, we’re in for a brand new world map, drawn up to take new areas into account and slot them into the existing Sword Coast.
