Overhaul Games have announced that Sam Hulick, best known for his work on the Mass Effect series, will compose the score for their upcoming Baldur’s Gate remake/update. Hulick’s score will accompany the games’ original soundtrack, in-keeping with the spirit of the Enhanced Edition project, which aims to modernize Baldur’s Gate while remaining true to the beloved original.
Hulick had this to say about the project: “The music of Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate II was a huge inspiration for me as a composer who was just venturing forth into the world of writing music for games. So to be able to travel back in time, so to speak, and score original material for the Baldur’s Gate saga is a dream come true for me,”
Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition is set to be released for PC, Mac and iPad this Summer.
