Skybound And Beamdog Bring Six Classic Dungeons & Dragons Games To Switch In 2019

The majority of these six games were originally developed by BioWare and / or Black Isle Studios from 1998 on, the lone exception being Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear which came directly from Beamdog in 2016.

"We are ecstatic to partner with Skybound Games to bring these great classics to new platforms", said Trent Oster, Beamdog CEO. Each title will be on display at Skybound's booth from March 28 until March 31. This also coincides with the anniversary of Skybound Games' formation underneath Skybound Entertainment, most known for their work publishing Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comics as well as other fan-favorite series Invincible. "As longtime fans of Baldur's Gate and Dungeons & Dragons it's fantastic to partner with Beamdog as the newest member of the Skybound family". While console gamers were typically enjoying the latest grand adventures from Japan, those with personal computers were diving deep into the traditional western Dungeons & Dragons fantasy worlds of Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and more.

This year, you can expect Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2, Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, Icewind Dale, Planescape: Torment, and Neverwinter Nights to arrive on PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.
