'Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance' Is Coming To Modern Consoles

Baldur's Gate fans have been focused on the next instalment of the series since the beta dropped. Baldur's Gate 3 promises one of the best Dungeons and Dragons experiences you could have on a computer or console, and Larian Studios has been working hard to update and polish the experience for its full release. But Baldur's Gate fans should perhaps pause their fascination with the future and look to the past. Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance has been re-released today.


The classic role-playing game is making a comeback after all these years and is getting a full re-release on current platforms. Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and even the Switch are all getting access to the game. It'll cost you £29.99 (or $29.99) and boast not only the single-player features but also local co-op play for you and a buddy close by.

On a similar subject, a new Dungeons & Dragons game called Dark Alliance is on the way and it looks incredible. Have a look at the gameplay below:



The launch trailer released by IGN shows that actually, the game looks to have aged shockingly well. When I think of PS2-era games I think of polygons on polygons. Here, the re-release has managed to capture the aesthetics of the Xbox 360 / PS2 and modernise the game just enough to be easy on the eyes for today's audiences.

Though it's a Baldur's Gate game, it's not Larian Studios nor Snowblind Studios who have been working on the port. It's from Interplay Entertainment according to Eurogamer. Despite being a little quiet these days, the studio obviously still has the power to bring this game back to life.

And the best part is that the game is out today. No waiting around for a release date for Baldur's Gate and Dungeons and Dragons fans, as they sit patiently for BG3 as well as the spiritual successor to the Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance games - Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance. That adventure is set to release in June of this year, so this reminder of the Dark Alliance's beginning is an excellent place to start.
