Beamdog Hinting at Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition

A new teaser is making the rounds, and it seems like Beamdog is at it again with remastering and expanding a classic PC RPG.

The new teaser, seen over on planescape.com, was also cleverly touted by Beamdog head Trent Oster over on Twitter as “Plan Escape.”

In case that metaphorical club didn’t hit you over the head hard enough, they’re clearly teasing an enhanced remaster for the classic RPG, Planescape: Torment.

Upon further inspection, the teaser site source code has five hexadecimal characters, which when converted to ASCII, spell out “PSTEE,” or Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition.

The teaser site is set to expire at 5PM Eastern on March 28th, so we’ll find out what the hubbub is about tomorrow night.

Beamdog have carved out their own niche in remastering and expanding old computer RPGs, as they’ve remastered and re-released both Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate 2, as well as developed a completely new expansion for the original Baldur’s Gate, titled “Siege of Dragonspear.” You can read our review for that here.

    What can change the nature of a man?

    Aside from sex reassignment surgery, of course.

    The Enhanced versions of the original Baldur’s Gate saga were good, but they came out with their own expansion (Dragonspear) that bridges the time gap between 1 and 2.

    Needless to say, they obviously didn’t have the original script to fall back on with this new content, and they SJW’d it up to the max.

    To level so badly even the LGBT community was attacking them for pandering. The writing was atrocious with everyone drooling over how great the female villain. With it being such a shame we have to defeat her. I won’t touch another thing developed by them again.

    All they need to do is make it run on modern OS and hardware. A widescreen mode that actually works. It’s a 1999 game, getting those to run can be a PITA. Future proof it. The writing in the game still holds up.

    So we can expect a broken game with bugs they introduced themselves? Like what happened with Baldur’s Gate? Also freaking modders write better stories than their teams. Holy shit.

    Actually, people should buy it while it’s still on GOG.

    If Beamdog gets a hold of the license they’ll remove the original.

    Yes.That’s true.When that happens torrenting will be the only option.

    In spite of the complaining and hand wringing; the irony is that Sigil is definitely the type of city that would presumably have a transgender Free League Aasimar/Dwarf Indep real estate agent…
