The countdown at "PlanEscape.com" has expired and Beamdog have officially unveiled Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition. Not exactly a surprise, especially after the geniuses at VentureBeat accidentally leaked the news including launch trailer 12 hours early. As I expected, it's a straight-up enhancement with no new content, not even restored cut content. According to project lead Alex "aVENGER" Tomovic, who is doing a hell of a job promoting the game on our forums, the only changes are bugfixes and some touched up writing by Chris Avellone, who has apparently spent the last year overseeing the project. Sounds...not bad? Here's that launch trailer and the description from the official website:

"What can change the nature of a man?"

You are the Nameless One, a hulking figure covered in scars and tattoos collected over the course of countless lives—none of which you can remember, but are now coming back to haunt you. You are prodded awake by Morte, a floating skull and keeper of secrets, to embark on an adventure taking the Nameless One from the dirty streets of Sigil into the mysterious Outer Planes and even into the depths of Hell itself.

Discover an incredibly rich story and a unique setting unlike anything else in fantasy. Defeat strange and alien creatures, engage in rich dialogue, and explore the dark and dangerous Planescape setting in this 50+ hour RPG classic.

Millions of Planescape: Torment fans have enjoyed the strange and dangerous city of Sigil and surrounding planes through the Nameless One's eyes. Now it’s your turn. This is Planescape: Torment like you’ve never seen before.

Enhanced Edition - Key Features:

  • Enhanced Planescape: Chris Avellone, Lead Designer on Planescape Torment, has partnered with Beamdog to curate gameplay updates, bug fixes, and enhancements to best capture his original vision for the game.
  • Remastered Music: The full Planescape: Torment soundtrack has been remastered in-game to add more depth to Sigil and the multiverse.
  • 4K Interface: Sigil has never looked this good! The interface of Planescape: Torment has been rebuilt in high definition with tons of new convenience features.
  • A Planescape For Today: The Enhanced Edition includes modern features such as tab highlighting, area zooming, combat log, quickloot, and more!

PST:EE is basically done and is coming out in two weeks, on April 11th. It's already available for preorder on Steam, GOG or directly from Beamdog, with a price tag of $20. Note that the game's original version will be taken down from GOG after the EE is released, so if you're a purist and you somehow don't own it already, I suggest you hop to it.
