Kurz nach der Ankündigung des Rollenspiel-Remasters Planescape: Torment - Enhanced Edition hat Beamdog jetzt weitere Details bekannt gegeben.

So wird die überarbeitete Version des Rollenspielklassikers nicht nur eine 4K-Auflösung, sondern auch eine Zoomfunktion, Quickloot sowie Textänderungen durch Chris Avellone bieten. Außerdem soll es durch die Verknüpfung mit Steam unter anderem Achievemts, Cloud-Save sowie Stream Trading Cards geben.

Des Weiteren hat das Team die Ladepausen beim Wechsel zwischen verschiedenen Arealen abgeschafft. Das dürfte dem allgemeinen Spielfluss sehr zugute kommen. Hier die Übersicht der Änderungen im Vergleich zum Original:

The right-click menu in original PST required at least one additional click to perform any action.

Planescape: Torment - Enhanced Edition
Die faszinierenden Schauplätze und skurrilen Charaktere von Planescape: Torment sind zeitlos großartig. Der Golem Coaxmetall ist zwar von Zerstörungswut getrieben, kann aber trotzdem oder gerade deswegen zu einer wertvollen Hilfe werden.
