Baldur’s Gate Coming To Steam

The first computer that my family had was a Mac, so I grew up on games like Civilization and Sim City 2000. However, when I was finally able to obtain an a PC, one of the first games I remember sinking countless ours into on it was Bauldur’s Gate. I still have my old CDs, and there are times where I’m tempted to dust them off and dive in again. Unfortunately, due to the age of this game, it’s not exactly a walk in the park to get it running again. If only it could be updated and brought to some sort of digital distribution platform that worked flawlessly on newer operating systems.

Yes, I’m hinting at the possibility of Bauldur’s Gate coming to Steam, and it appears that it will be happening. What’s more, we should be seeing the sequel as well. There has been no official announcement from either Bioware or Valve. Instead, the information comes from Steam itself.

It would seem that earlier this month both titles were added to the Steam registry. You can find the original with the AppID 206180, and the sequel with the ID of 99140. We can tell little, other than the fact that the games have been added. We do know that Baldur’s Gate 2 is the “Complete” version, so we should expect the expansions to be included. We’ll let you know when when we have confirmation of pricing and release date information.
