Baldur’s Gate is considered one of the best RPGs of all time. But, what would the game look like in 3D? A fanmade mod to Neverwinter Nights 2 attempts to answer that question, remaking the original game–and the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion–in full 3D.
The team behind Baldur’s Gate Reloaded makes it clear that the project is not-for-profit, and was created as a tribute to the original game created by BioWare. Development on the project started in 2006 and was just recently completed. The mod can be downloaded for free (an account must be created first, but there is no charge), and you must have NWN2, as well as the Mask of the Betrayer and Storm of Zehir expansions installed ($20 on GOG).
The labor or love was created by Drew Rechner. “Ridiculous amounts of hours, sweat, and tears were poured into this thing and now it’s finally released to the public,” he said on his Facebook page. According to Kotaku, he was assisted by programmer Shallina, and used the early game as a demo to break into the industry at TimeGate Studios.
