If I had to choose the best ever RPG games of all time, then both the Baldur’s Gate titles as well as Planescape: Torment would be on that list, with Neverwinter Nights and Icewind Dale also featuring in a top 10. Well, for console gamers who never got the chance to experience these iconic RPGs on PC back in the day, there is some very good news. All these games will be coming to consoles.
Skybound Games and Beamdog announced this fantastic news and best of all, these classics including the entire Baldur’s Gate franchise will get physical versions so you can add them to your ever-growing collection. These games will all come to Xbox One, PS4 and the Nintendo Switch this year.
