Also, if you’re willing to pay what you want on Steam, you can pre-order the cartoony cooperative first-person stabber Mythforce.
The newest bundle from Simple Bundle is a massive library of classic Dungeons & Dragons role-playing games, including the first two Baldur’s Gate games as well as other well-known classics and newer entries in the genre. More specifically, the offer.
Included in RPG Legends: Baldur’s Gate & & Beyond are Beamdog’s Enhanced Editions of the original Baldur’s Gate and its sequel, with the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion for the original game and the Throne of Bhaal expansion for the sequel.
Cross-platform multiplayer, improved visuals with higher resolutions and widescreen, mod support, various gameplay repairs, new player classes, and easier and harder difficulty levels are just some of the ways the Enhanced Editions improve upon the original versions of BioWare’s classics from the 1990s and early 2000s, which are based on the tabletop guidelines for D&D’s second edition.
In addition to the Enhanced Editions, the package also includes Beamdog’s first expansion for Baldur’s Gate 1, Siege of Dragonspear, which was the first new Baldur’s Gate game in over a year before the release of Baldur’s Gate 3. The smaller Faces of Good and Evil DLC, which adds additional character pictures, is also included.
The Enhanced Editions of Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale, two more D&D CRPG classics, have also joined the Baldur’s Gates, as have the Complete Adventures for Neverwinter Nights, which includes the Enhanced Edition of BioWare’s equally valuable Baldur’s Gate sequel along with six downloadable content adventures.
Right now, even the lowest “pay what you want” price of $9.29 would bring you five of the best PC RPGs ever made, but that’s not all you get.
There is a modern CRPG in the vein of Pathfinder that is just as good as those older classics. The sequel to Owlcat Games’ Pathfinder, Wrath of the Righteous: Given that it is built on the ideal tabletop competitor to D&D, Kingmaker might as well be dubbed “Baldur’s Gate 2, but Pathfinder.” (If you want an idea of how close the ties run, consider that Pathfinder was originally built on D&D’s 3.5 rulebook.)
Nate wrote when the game first came out, “If you – like me – liked Baldur’s Gate 2 to bits, you must be playing this video game.”
MythForce, a much more up-to-date but still unbalanced video game, was recently released on Steam, and you can get it if you increase your rate to 23.23 or more. The co-op rogue-lite first appeared on Epic this spring but has yet to make its way to Steam. Rather than being a slow, turn-based CRPG, it is more like a dream FPS (first-person stabber) clad in the skin of a ’80s Saturday morning animation. The best deal here is a convenient preorder for whenever it finally arrives.
Your pay-what-you-want contribution will, like with all Humble Bundles, go towards a good cause. In this example, it is Active Minds, an American nonprofit dedicated to raising youth mental health literacy. It’s important to remember that Humble’s default split gives more money to the publishers and Humble itself than to the charities, but you can change this if you’d like by clicking the ‘Adjust Donation’ button.
You have till August 16th to take advantage of the Humble RPG Legends: Baldur’s Gate & Beyond Bundle. You could just have time to finish Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2 before Baldur’s Gate 3 is released if you get it soon enough (and if your rolls are lucky enough).
