Founded in 2009 by BioWare co-founder Trent Oster and lead programmer Cameron Tofer, Beamdog is best known for its Enhanced Editions of classic BioWare role-playing titles: Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate II, Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, Icewind Dale, Planescape Torment, and Neverwinter Nights. All games will be enhanced for console platforms and available in both physical and digital form. Skybound Games is also the company that swooped in after the collapse of Telltale Games to salvage The Walking Dead The Final Season. Looking forward to playing Baldur's Gate on a console?

If you would like the chance to check these games out in person, the Skybound Games booth at PAX East in Boston - taking place from 28th to 31st March, will be displaying a number of them to coincide with its first anniversary.

Beamdog first appeared in 2011 publishing MDK2 Wii underneath Interplay and then went on to release enhanced editions of the six aforementioned games as Enhanced Editions. Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment, two games that originally used BioWare's Infinity Engine, will arrive on a new platform this year, as well. "Skybound's accomplishments are wonderful and they have a demonstrated love and respect for creators".

Skybound Games was founded in 2018 by CEO Ian Howe, which acts as a division of Skybound Entertainment.

More details about what fans can expect with these upcoming console releases, including specific platforms and box contents, will be unveiled in the coming months.
