Description

Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga combines the original Baldur's Gate and its expansion, Tales Of The Sword Coast, into one package.

Baldur's Gate utilizes Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules, and sends you on an epic journey throughout many areas, where an iron shortage is threatening all trade. To make matters worse, the iron that does get through happens to be tainted. It's up to you, foster child of the wise Gorion, to find out the truth beyond the iron shortage and save the Sword Coast from a war.
