Monday, 30th July 2012 17:23 GMT By Dave Cook

Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition creative director Trent Oster has confirmed that the game will feature cross-platform co-op via Twitter.

Over at his personal Twitter feed, Oster confirmed, “Bgee will have co-op multiplayer and will work across platforms. iPad can play with Android, Mac and PC. One happy gaming family :).”

Clearly, he’s a delightful chap, and his game is looking rather brilliant too. Online cross-platform support will work wherever you are in the world and across all of the formats listed above.

The game will use a matchmaking system when pairing players together, explains Beamdog’s official Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition site.

Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition is released on September 18.

    Actually the website has pretty clearly stated as much since the timer ran out :P

    “Adventurers on iPad, Mac, PC and Android Tablets can all play Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition together.”

    Fair game to tell people about it anyway, though. It does sound pretty nifty!

    Any chance of finding out when it’ll be available on Steam? I’m pretty sure they said that MDK2 wasn’t going to be on there (which is the only reason why I bought it on Beamdog) but that has obviously changed :P

    They actually said it won’t be on Steam. (atleast not at launch, but who knows what the future holds) ;)
    And to answer the question in the article, YES i’m so psyched for this game!

    Yeah, that’s why someone should ask them.

    They said the same thing about MDK 2 HD, and here a year later it’s on Steam.

    Either way i don’t really care, i mean its nice for those people who just needs all their games to be on steam if it actually gets released there, but i prefer my games as DRM free as possible so if i can get it with just the launcher and no need for a third party client then i’m happy ^^

    Beamdog is still a DRM client. It’s just a client that doesn’t have the rest of my games collection in it.
