Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance Gets Surprise 4K Re-Release on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Mobile Devices

In a bit of news that came out of nowhere, Publisher Interplay Entertainment and developer Black Isle Studios announced an HD remaster of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices.

According to the press release, this version of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance will have enhanced visuals on these new systems and will even support 4K on consoles that allow it.

Fans won’t have to break the bank either since Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance will be re-released for $29.99 on all systems.

The number of systems Dark Alliance will be hitting isn’t a huge surprise since the original hack-and-slash RPG originally came out on the PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube, though it also seems to be in line with previous re-releases for Neverwinter Nights and the 1998 Baldur’s Gate.

Sadly, while Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance does offer local co-op, which is great, there is no added online play, so if you were hoping to play this with a friend from afar that won’t be happening.

This re-release of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance isn’t just a welcome bit of nostalgia for gamers that were around for the sixth generation of consoles, but the fact that it’s coming out a month before DnD: Dark Alliance is a smart bit of marketing.

DnD fans are probably just happy to see more video games under the Forgotten Realms era getting re-released and we’re always down for preserving video game history.

Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance comes to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices at the end of the week, on May 7.
