The shiny new remake/update/upscale/whatevah of classic dungeon crawler Baldur’s Gate by developers Beamdog is out today for PC, despite suffering a few setbacks on other platforms.

According to the game’s creative director Trent Oster, the problem came to light during Apple’s approval process. Posting on Twitter, he announced that: “The iOS build is not approved. We’ve found a crash bug and had to re-submit, which pushes us to the back of the line. I’d guess next week.”

That same approvals process also applies to the OS X build of the game, which leaves Mac owners jonesing for classic D&D in the lurch. Android builds are similarly affected. “Android is trailing iOS,” tweeted Oster. “Our current crash is cross-platform, so the fixes are for all platforms. Legacy code bites again.”

To soothe your souls while you wait for the fixes to get through the stringent checking process, we have a gameplay trailer that Beamdog released this week, looking as gloomy and full of dice rolls as we remember.

Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for PC is available now for $19.99 (£12.50) from Beamdog’s website as a direct download.
