Now that the Siege of Dragonspear expansion is out on GOG, the folks at the classic-focused digital game store have announced some interesting changes for how they will sell the Infinity Engine games. While previously, Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate II, Icewind Dale and the respective Enhanced Editions were sold as separate products, from April 29 they will be sold together as Definitive Edition bundles.
As a result, the classic editions of the games won't be sold separately anymore, though those that already own them will get to keep them in their catalogs:
On April 29, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition, and Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition will be expanded to include the classic versions each becoming the Definitive Edition Bundle and not available for purchase separately. If you already own the classics on GOG.com, the games currently on your shelf won't be affected.
"We're excited to take our commitment and support to Baldur's Gate and GOG fans to the next level and humbled to work with such great partners. The Definitive Edition Bundle will give every Baldur's Gate fan what they're looking for" concludes Cameron Tofer, Beamdog COO.
Plenty of discounts are also available to celebrate the release. Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is 75% off while its sequel and Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition are 60% off. If you already own the classic versions of these games, you'll get an even larger 85% off discount.
