    Publisher Interplay and developer Black Isle Studios just announced a release date for the remastered version of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance II, an action RPG based on the Dungeons & Dragons franchise that was originally released back in 2004 for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox.

    The original game was met with great success to both pen and paper enthusiasts and video game fans and was considered a sleeper hit when it came out in the early 2000’s. I remember playing this gem way back and had a blast with its cooperative mode and now, it’s good to know that a new generation of gamers can experience this remaster with all its updated bells and whistles.

    Check out the trailer below:

    Based in and around the city of Baldur’s Gate itself, the game features five playable characters and classes and spans dozens of locations. Featuring the ability to create custom weapons and armor, players can improve items by using runestones and gems while playing through the game’s four difficulty levels; “Easy,” “Normal,” “Hard,” and “Extreme.”
